While we won’t argue that certain makeup schematics work better on specific skin tones, a new wave of dark, vampy, lip hues is proving to be surprisingly, yet universally flattering. In the past we’ve been told these shades work best on darker coloring, but we’re noticing fair complexioned beauties breaking the mold and embracing this bold look as well.
Whether you call it burgundy, wine, or even black cherry, we recommend you incorporate a rich, dark red into your winter beauty regimen STAT. There’s a shade that’s just right for you, we promise!
Peep our expert tips below, and you’ll be rocking a vampy lip like a pro in no time.
• Invest – we love a great drug store find as much as the next girl, but when making a statement as bold as this, it’s best to opt for a trusted brand you know will stay in place.
• Line – lip liner is the vampy lip’s best friend. A defined line and clean edges will elevate your pout to next level gorgeous.
• Commit – steer clear of heavy liners, exaggerated blush or anything else that will draw focus away from your pucker. Light foundation and subtle mascara is the most you’ll need.
