Dark Lips are in right now and even know you might think that dark lips are only for fall or winter seasons, they can make a great night time or date night look. Dark lips look great with tan skin and pulled back hair. I’m going to show you how to rock your best dark lip with simple Do’s and Don’ts.
DO : Keep your look simple, play up only one feature at a time. Pull hair back into an easy pony tail, keep cheeks and eyes bare and let your look revolve around a dramatic, deep berry lipstick. This way everyone sees the bright lip. If you try to do up your eyes and your lips sometimes it can be a little to much. (I’ve learned this the hard way)
DONT’S : Be careful with your lip liner. For lined lips is suggest rimming your lips with a pointy Q-tip dipped in translucent powder to help the darkest shades of lip stick stand put.
DO : When you wear a plum lipstick try pairing it with bold brows. It’s a easy quick way to get a bold and edgy look. The dark lips and heavy brows draw a lot of attention to you features. With simple contouring you can create a bold look with out all the hassle.
DON’T : Don’t forget to check your teeth. Don’t forget the tried and true trick with Vaseline ! Just rub a small amount of Vaseline on your teeth before you apply your lipstick.
DO : Since we are using the dark lips in the summer, you can use darker tones of lip stick with darker skin tones. the tanner the skin the darker the lip. You can get away with dark fuchsia, dark berry and brownish red.
