HOW TO WEAR DARK LIPSTICK

Winter is still here, so is the dark lipstick. If your lips are your asset, then it’s worth investing in a dark shade lipstick, preferably burgundy, for a dramatic fashionable look.


You only have to consider a few tips for the best approach and perfect result.

1. Find the right shade for your skin tone.
Just like any other lipstick family, you want to find the right shade for your complexion. Darker skin tones can pull off purplish hues while lighter complexions should opt for berry shades. Those with cool tones should veer towards blue-based shades while warm tones are complemented by brownish shades.

2. Prep before applying.
For that rich color, dark lipsticks need a higher concentration of pigment. The more pigment, the dryer the lip becomes after wear. To create a velvety moist finish, remove dry flaky skin with an exfoliator. Or you can use a very simple and natural exfoliator tip. 

3. Keep it light on the rest of the face.
With such a bold lip color, you want to keep the rest of the makeup as neutral as possible. Go light on the eye shadow and eyeliner, but do play up the lashes. Nothing pairs better than a bold lip and luscious lashes.
