THERE SHE GOES: Dark Lips

If you thought red lips were bold, try again!
 

From fashion runways to the almost goth lips of Camilla Belle, from Lana del Rey’s strikingly dark lips at the Met Gala to even JLo’s look at the red carpet premier of ‘What to Expect when You’re Expecting’, the new “nude’ is dark! While JLo pulled off her wine-drenched lips with equally smouldering eyes, Camilla Belle does it with almost nude make-up but lots of blush – here’s a breakdown of the look.

How to get it:

  1. The key to sporting the black cherry lip trend is to have a clean, nude face. Begin with a cleansed and toned face and apply the serum you are loyal to, so as to plump out the skin the best you can for a glowing visage.
  2. Next use your trusty foundation to give you a flawless complexion but let the concealer be; too many layers will only detract from the bold look you intend to create.
  3. For the eyes, stick to mascara and skip the shadow or kohl lest you end up looking goth instead of trendy dark cherry lips.
  4. Blush-up in a darker than usual blush – or layer a little more of it. You do need to create rosy cheeks else the dark lips may make you look washed out!
  5. For the lips, pick a shade that complements your skin tone. For example, pink-berry tones highlight fair skin, while more of a brick red hue livens up a golden/olive skin tone. Also, you don’t need to invest in the darkest shade of lipper that you may or may not wear often. Instead layer a maroon/pink/red lipstick over a mauve/purple one to create the same effect.
  6. As for your hair – go Hollywood coiffure or styled waves to complete the look!
