Makeup Look #13 : Fall Winter 2014 Dark Lips

IMG_2867-0.JPG

So off from my beauty haul reviews, i’m presenting to you all my first Fall Winter look for this year -dark lips. I have always loved the ox blood, deep burgundy/bordeaux color thats in the runways for FW this year. I do recommend to go by level of darkeness before you completely decide which level you should go for. Here’s a few products I did review and I recommend that you should try:

  • NYX lip liner in Auburn/ Cabernet – deep berry red but is subtle
  • Barry M Moisturizing Lip Paint in Black Cherry 106 – dark berry red in semi glossy finish
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry – very dark purple-ish red in semi glossy finish
  • MAC Pro Lipstick Matte in Sin – deep burgundy red/ dark blue red in matte finish

I have the first three lip products and im still in search for MAC Sin because blue under tones works best for me in red lipsticks ( I do have the Russian Red which im so in love with). But one thing to take note is to prep your lips, moisturize them! Because dark lip colors will drain your lips and having flaky lips dont look so nice when youre wearing dark lipsticks. Also, do apply a lipliner all over, then fill in your lips before your lipstick so it stays longer and so it wont leak around your mouth!

This is such an easy look for a night out and will definitely change your regular smokey eyes makeup for going out. Let me know if you guys like it, cause I definitely have been sporting this look for quite a few times now!

love,

Louise
