During the Holiday Season we all want to look our best, whether it’s a party or an everyday event. In today’s world of fashion, to be “in” is more than just having the right haircut or clothes. It’s also about how to wear your makeup. We all have different styles, and different goals on how we want to look. One holiday trend this year is a chic, deep dark lip.
Plum, Raspberry, and Wine colors are recommended. But if you’re fair skinned like me, you might not like such a dark color for your complexion. But not to worry you can still be in style with a dark lip, not using the above colors. Instead of the dark purples, and dark maroons; I recommend Brick Reds and Dark Pinks.
Whether you prefer a stain, a gloss, or a lipstick; a dark lip balances perfectly between classic and sexy. It’s a look that can never go wrong, combine it with a Nude eye shadow makes for a classy everyday look. For a more glam look combine it with the never failing Smokey eye. Which ever is the look for you during the winter season, dark lips is a look that goes with every occasion. To choose the right look for you; you must first ask yourself am I a gloss, lipstick or stain kind of girl? Choosing between the three is somewhat difficult, but it really depends on what you’re looking for in your lip color. Below I have listed the benefits of all three.
Lip Gloss: You want to use lip gloss to give you lips more volume giving your lips a fuller look.
Lip Stick: You want to use lipstick to give your lips a thick creamy texture that both hydrates your lips, and give you longer wear and more coverage.
Lip Stain: You want to use a lip stain to tint your lips with smudge proof color and coverage that lasts all day.
We all have our preferences on our make-up but it’s good to sometimes switch it up for a new look. So whether you prefer a gloss to a lipstick, or you prefer a lipstick to a stain try something new, you just might be surprised. Once you decide on a lipstick, a stain or a gloss, you then ask yourselves what band to choose. I recommended three products that I believe you will love!
