Since it’s still winter, I think it’s appropriate to talk about my top 5 dark lipsticks. Dark lipsticks became very popular last winter but more and more people are going out of their comfort zones and are starting to wear them. They can be worn very boldly and give off a grunge look or can be dressed up and can be very fancy.
The easiest to wear is the MAC, Hearts Aflame. It is matte dark brownish red and is absolutely gorgeous. I have been looking everywhere for that shade of red and finally found it at the Mac counter in Heathrow airport. It changes from the typical reds and stays very wearable. The formula is amazing and since it is matte it stays on forever.
Another dark red that is a bit more of a luxury is the DIOR, 5th Avenue. It is more dark and less matte than the other one and feels very nice on the lips.
The MAYBELLINE, Naked Brown is a lot more of a special colour. It’s a dark brown which I personally love. I think it is very different but probably won’t match every skin tone.
My ultimate favorite is the very popular MAC, Diva. It a dark matte plum and looks beautiful. I love the touch of edge it adds and suits practically everyone.
The boldest out of them all is MAC, Cyber. A very dark purple almost black. It is the satin formula so it’s very comfortable on the lips. If you like to have a dark edgy style, you will love that one. It was my transition step to black lipstick. It is not everyone’s cup of tea but you will definitely stand out and make a statement.
I like to wear bold lips with a simple eye look so that the focus is on the lips and doesn’t come off as over the top. They are very suited for night looks but I love wearing them during the day too. Whenever my skin doesn’t look great or I have a little imperfection, I like using a dark lip to take off the attention from my skin and put it on my lips. Another great tip is when you want to look put together but don’t have a lot of time, just pop on some mascara and a dark lip and you’ll look fantastic.
Hope it helped xxx.
