While it is almost Summer and the sun is out and shining, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still flirt with what are traditionally winter trends.
A dark lip can be sexy, sumptuous and flattering if you choose the right tone for your skin colour.
If you have fair skin, I always think a hint of purple tones really makes an elegant, yet forward statement. If you have olive skin I think a warmer, dark red tone adds dimension and colour.
Choosing a vibrant lip colour can be a little daunting, and to be honest it takes a little coaxing for me to give it a go. I recommend applying a bold shade like a deep berry and keeping it on for a good half hour- the initial reaction will shock you and is not a good indicator of whether this is a look that you should wear. If you still don’t like it after half and hour, the shade probably isn’t you but more often than not you will come around!
