Perfecting a dark lip can be a tricky one, especially if you are new to the look. The secret is to be bold and brave, don’t be afraid to refresh your look with dark plums and passionate reds that stand out on your face. Wear your strong, statement lip colour with confidence and enjoy the enviable stares your pout can create. Here’s some simple steps to help you perfect the dark lipstick look.

Keep it simple

If you are going for a bold lip, keep the rest of your makeup subtle and simple. For a fresh look that really makes your lips pop, pull hair back into an easy ponytail and keep your cheeks and eyes quite bare and minimal, let your makeup revolve around your lips. Think about your outfit choice as well, making sure it doesn’t clash with your lippie shade. Stick to neutral tones if you want to keep it safe, or go all out and match your outfit or accessories to you lips.

Line those lips

Before you apply your gorgeous shade of dark lipstick, line your lips with a matching shade of lip liner, drawing around the shape of your lips to give them a natural border.

The great news is, they are gentle so can also be used on other areas of the face!
