There’s something about transitioning from a paired back, medicine minimal makeup look in Summer to something much more vampy and rich in A/W that gets me very excited. I’m not sure weather it’s the opportunity to slap everything in my makeup collection on my face (waste not, diagnosis want not) or the fact that I love dark lips staining everything in sight – just kiddin’ neither are true, viagra but I love A/W makeup trends nonetheless.
During this seasonal period you really can’t go wrong with rockin’ a berry lip. Much the same as liquid liner, berry lips can sense your fear so you’ve gotta approach them with confidence.
For those of you who fear that sporting a darker toned lip might make you look like you’re enjoying the Halloween period a little too much, opt for something on the sheerer/paler end of the berry spectrum such as the options I’ve aptly named ‘The Everyday’ (Dior Kiss – ‘Lychee Rose’ Lipgloss) & ‘The Inbetween-er’ (Fuschia – ‘Love Affair’ Lip Lacquer).
More often then not you’ll see me working the darker tones – ‘The Classic One’ (Fuschia ‘Vamp’ Lipstick) & ‘The Night Out’ (MAC ‘Rebel’ Lipstick). I’ve paired my lip with a smokey eye and lots of lashes but it’s up to you whether you want to go that dramatic. Both can be worn as day-time looks when paired with a more simple eye!
- Lip liner is your friend!
- Take a little concealer on a brush to clean up any mishaps – all better!
- Don’t forget blush! It helps to warm up your complexion again (dark lips can make you appear more pale than usual).
Now go ahead and rock your berry lips with confidence!
