Upcoming cold days are ideal for playing with dark lipstick. My first association was the infamous grunge look from the '90s, time when I was wearing a nonchalant, rebellious look that was combined with different but complementary textures with a focus on dark lips.
To achieve maximum effect and contrast in shades, it is necessary to perfect the skin and cover all irregularities. Start by applying foundation and focus on applying the product from the middle of the face to the outer parts. Different skin parts often require different amount of coverage, so start with a thin layer, then build up only where needed. If irregularities are still visible, take a small, thin brush to precisely apply concealer only where needed. Under eye, and their different colors can affect the overall look, therefore, apply a concealer which will illuminate the area and diminish the purple or yellow hues. Grunge look may have been a reflection of a rebel, but in this case, we want a sophisticated, well rested gunge look.
Dark lipsticks are a real autumn-winter moment, but one of those with whom you have to be careful and devote time to it. Despite all the long-lasting lipstick formulations on the market, wearing traces are most visible on dark lips, so initial preparation of the lips as well as minor reapplications during the day is important.
Make your lips soft and supple, dead skin cells free. Remove them with sugar peel, restore moisture and care with lip balm.
Eyeshadow - wear matte shades that match your skin tone and a lot of mascara or individual eyelashes. Warble editorial look can be achieved with shiny eyelids, so apply shine with Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream that will give you that wet eye look.
Neutral shades of blush will most contribute to a complete look. Opt for matte shades and if you want to give some shine to the face, do it with a creamy highlighter that will melt with the skin and be imperceptible on the skin, as if the glow comes from within.
