I’m seriously loving this vampy dark red lip created by makeup artist Depechegurl. The lip shade is called “Shame” from Urban Decay and it’s lined with MAC “Vino” lipliner & NYX Black Gel Liner. Dark lips are definitely one of my favorite trends this season. It’s sexy, effortless, and it happens to look great on all complexions.
Dark lipstick is also the latest 90’s trend to make a fashionable comeback and it’s popping up everywhere, from the catwalk to the streets! This bold look certainly turns heads, and plenty of our favorite fashionistas like Kim Kardashian, Selita Ebanks, and Angela Simmons have been seen slaying this look. So, you know that I had to find a few tips to achieving this dark sexy pout:
* Make sure you exfoliate your lips first & follow with a nice coat of lip balm.
* Use a lip liner. This will give your pout a defined look and help to eliminate “feathering”.
* Keep the rest of your makeup simple. Less is definitely more with a vampy lip.
* If you’re still on the fence about this trend, you could also try a stain or a pigmented lip balm for a less intense look.
What do you think? Are you feeling the vampy red lips? Would you try this?
