For the past few months I’ve been experimenting with darker lip colors. A few of my favorites are above – I think these are, as the picture so cleverly nods, All You Need for Fall. Beauty-wise, at least.
Sonia Kashuk, celeb makeup artist and the woman behind the mega beauty brand at Target, was kind enough to share some great lip tips with me for this post, as I was struggling a bit with how to rock the vamp look. She said,
“Lip color should be fun, so don’t be afraid to experiment- there are no rules when it comes to makeup as color becomes more seasonless. Just be sure to keep the lip undefined as harsh lines will make this look dated.”
So c’mon, DO IT – try a dark lip. BUT resist the urge to add the defining lip liner that was sooo cool in high school. Also remember that a lot of glosses and lipsticks are buildable. One coat might be the perfect berry for you….but add a few more layers, and you could be ready for a vampy night on the town!
