DaRk LiPs

Happy October my trendsetter wannabees! I have a trend for you guys that’s slightly old, but still feels very new. So let me reintroduce you to Dark Lips!

 

Dark lips is one of the coolest trends around! Dark lips has been the go-to lip shade of the year! 

Why is this trend so popular you may ask? I believe this trend has become popular because dark lips is a cool lipstick shade take you have to take a risk with.

And who doesn’t love taking risks? One of the biggest risks is not taking one after all! This dark lipstick trend is either going to look absolutely incredible or its going to look disastrous if you’re not wearing it correctly. So below I’m going to give you some tips on how to rock dark lips!


 

Let’s start things off by talking about the different shades of dark lipstick! There is no way that you could get bored with dark lips! Dark lipstick comes in many different shades! You can choose from dark shades like 

dark purple,

dark blue,



dark red,



dark brown,



and black!

Awesome shades right? I think all of these shades are amazing! 

First, let’s talk about dark purple lips! This dark purple lips trend is becoming more and more popular by the minute! I consider dark purple lipstick as the “Let’s party” shade because it’s such a cute and fun dark shade haha!

Dark purple lips isn’t too hard to pull off. One of the best ways for anyone to pull off this look is to find a shade that goes well with your skin tone. People with warm skin tones will look best with a lipstick that’s more of a reddish purple.

 

People with cool skin tones can choose just about any of the cooler purple shades such as violet, dark plum or mauve.

Another tip that I thought you should know is that if your into wearing a full face of makeup or if your not into wearing makeup, then this is good news! Dark purple lips goes really well with full face makeup, a face with little makeup, or a face without makeup! See for yourself below!

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked like a beautiful bouquet of violets, then good news! You were able to pull off the shade!

 

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked like a sad purple furby, then bad news. You weren’t able to pull off the shade. 


Use the tips I gave you and give this shade another shot. You’ll thank me later! 


If dark purple lips are pulled off correctly, you’ll feel mysterious, majestic and of course gorgeous!


Dark blue lips is one the boldest shades of the bunch! 


Most dark blue lips are seen on models and actresses. But, who says you got to be famous to rock this shade. Said no one ever! I’m going to be honest dark blue lipstick can be quite difficult to pull off if your not used to bold lipstick shades. 

One of the best ways for anyone to pull off this look is not to wear bright versions of dark blue lipsticks. If the lipstick is too bright it could come off as smurfish.

 

If you do decide to rock a brighter blue, you would have to know how to layer different pigments of the blue lipstick so you can give it some depth and richness. Another tip that I thought you should know is that you shouldn’t go too crazy with makeup while rocking dark blue lipstick. Blue lipstick is a pretty bold shade. So it’s best to let your blue lips do all the talking lol.

Dark red lips is the most popular shade of the bunch!

 I believe it’s the most popular shade because you can rock this lipstick shade anywhere! How awesome is that? 

 

Dark red lips is pretty easy to pull off! One of the best ways for anyone to pull off dark red lips is to wear natural looking makeup. I would say natural looking makeup is wearing a little bronzer, eyeliner, mascara and possibly some blush. Natural makeup and dark red lips combined will create such a beautiful look!

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked as lovely as a ruby red gemthen good news! You were able to pull off the shade!

Dark brown lips was a popular trend in the 90’s and now it’s making it’s comeback in the 2010’s! Dark brown lips is also the best lip color for fall! 

 Dark brown lips is pretty easy to pull off as well! One of the best ways for anyone to pull off dark brown lips is to find the right shade that looks great with your skin tone.

I read on Makeup.com that people with light skin tones should wear brown lipsticks with red or orange undertones.


People with medium skin tones should wear cooler, taupe-like browns


 

and people with dark skin tones should wear soft dark tan, coffee like colors. 

Another tip that you should is that you can wear natural looking makeup as well with this look. Natural looking makeup will help bring out those beautiful features of yours!

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked as tasty as chocolate, then good news! You were able to pull off the shade!

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked like the poop emoji, then bad news. You weren’t able to pull off the shade.

If dark brown lips are pulled off correctly, you’ll feel posh, chic and of course sophisticated! 

Lastly, Black lips is the edgiest shade of the bunch, but it’s also the most underrated shade. 

I’m not going to lie black lipstick can be extremely difficult to pull off, but it’s such a cool daring shade!

One of the best ways for anyone to pull off this look is to wear minimum make up. By minimum I mean rocking some simple eyeliner, mascara, a little bronzer or almost no make up at all. 

Too much makeup can be distracting and black lipstick itself is distracting. So the two together isn’t going to work out.

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they looked like a beautiful gothic queen, then good news! You were able to pull off the shade! 

For those who’ve tried this shade and thought they look like a creepy gothic vampire, then bad news. You weren’t able to pull off the shade.

If black lips are pulled off correctly, you’ll feel like a rebel, a risk-taker and a rockstar!

Ps. Don’t forget to use lip liner with any of these dark lipstick shades. It’s a must!

I hope you loved all of these dark lipstick shades as much as I do! You can buy any of these cool dark lipstick shades at any store that sells makeup. My favorite shop to buy makeup and lipstick is MAC!
