5 Clever Tips For Wearing A Dark Lipstick Right

For nights and days when you want to switch up your look to something more unusual and unique, adding a dark lipstick is the best way to go. Have troubles with applying it or afraid to look like a gothic teen? Here’re 5 tips to follow:

  1. Use a stain. It’s the best way to make the lips look voluminous and sexy. Use a lip stain in berry or wine that adds a smaller dose of pigment and dab it in place with fingers or a brush.
  2. Choose the right shade for your skintone. Darker skin tones can pull off purplish hues while lighter complexions should go for berry shades.
  3. Prep before applying. Dark lipstick is nothing without smooth lips, so before wearing it remove dry flaky skin with an exfoliator and moisturize with beeswax and jojoba oil.
  4. Don’t neglect a lip liner. Start your dark lip makeup with outlining around the lips and coloring in to create hold.
  5. Keep it simple on the rest of the face. Go light and neutral on the eye makeup, just play up the luscious lashes.
