Bold and beautiful
We just can't get enough of this rich, intense color and it's become a staple in both our wardrobe and our makeup bag. It's perfect for the coming colder months, but there's no real reason to wait before trying this look out!
The dark tones of this lipstick will draw attention to any imperfections, so be sure to counter this effect by creating a clear complexion! Cover up any blemishes with a concealer and apply a BB cream to create a flawless, even skin tone.
When applying your eye makeup, it's important to keep color to a minimum, so steer clear of any glitter or bright shades in favor of a more subtle look. Try a wash of shimmery gold shadow, as seen on the model in the photo. Use a kohl eyeliner pencil to define your eyes and finish with a single coat of lash-lengthening mascara.
When you're working such a strong color on your lips, you have much less room for error than with, say, a coat of nude lip gloss. For this reason, it's important to prepare your pout! Be sure to moisturize your lips first with a coat of lip balm. For a long lasting look, you can fill in your lips with a lipliner first, before applying your bold colour!
Now you have no excuse not to try this striking trend!
