The Dark Lip.
Spring is around the corner and so is the dark lip trend. Creating a dark lip has to be up there with getting the perfect winged liner - It’s hard to master. Well stop here! Because I’m about to make your life a whole lot easier. Below is a step by step guide on how to get the perfect dark lip.
Make it Work.
Step 1.) Moisturise your lips with a lovely lip balm, making sure you go over the lip line too to fill in any fine lines (don’t worry, we all have them, it’s just skin!)
Step 2.) Use a concealer to block out your lip colour. This will help strengthen the colour of the lipstick and help to even out the lip shape when lining the lips.
Step 3.) Powder over the lips with a translucent powder to set the concealer.
Step 4.) Using your lipliner (which should be close the colour of your lipstick) start lining the ‘M’ shape on your top lip. Using small backwards and forwards strokes follow your lipline. Start in the middle for the bottom lip and slowly work your way around the rest. Fill in the lip with the liner for extra staying power.
Step 5.) Using your lipstick fill in your lips not going close to the edge.
Step 6.) Using a brush, drag the lip colour up to the edge of your lips.
