How To: Dark Lips Look
How to get it:
- 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.
- 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.
- For the eyes, stick to mascara and skip the shadow or kohl lest you end up looking goth instead of trendy dark cherry lips.
- 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!
- 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.
- As for your hair – go Hollywood coiffure or styled waves to complete the look!
