Three ways to wear a dark lipstick

Det mörka läppstiftet är lika lockande i år som tidigare höstar, men det kan vara lite läskigt att ge sig på. Hur bär jag det? Kommer det bara ligga och samla damm i en låda någonstans? Det kommer det inte! Du kan bära dina mörka läppstift på många olika vis, så här visar jag tre grundläggande looker du lätt kan skapa. Läppstiftet jag använder är Milani Color Statement Lipstick i färgen Uptown Mauve.

 

The dark lipstick is as tempting this fall as any other fall, but it could be quite intimidating at first glance. How do I wear it? Will it just collect dust in a drawer somewhere? It won’t! You can wear the dark lipstick in so many ways, here I’m showing you three basic looks you can create. The lipstick I’m using is Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Uptown Mauve.

 

 

1. My naked lips, just for reference.

2. The wine stain. Pat your lipstick on with a finger, really massage it into the lips and you will get a light flush of colour. Perfect for your daytime Snow White face! Pair with a matching blush and wispy lashes, it’s a great look. Top it with a lip balm or clear gloss if you want it less matte.

3. Full on. Apply it straight from the bullet and don’t be shy! Keep it in place even more by wearing it with a matching lip pencil, I usually don’t because I’m lazy. Wearable for both daytime and night time depending on how you match it. Perfect for a pinup look.

4. Glossy, sultry. The perfect evening lip! Top the lipstick with a gloss in a sheer or matching colour, or vamp it up even more with a dark gloss. Vamp level 2000: Wear a dark lip liner smudged into the lip underneath, it will create even more depth.

IsaDora “Chelsea Red”

The other day I wore a classic red manicure, it’s so damn classy, I love red nails! I paired it with this makeup and, as you can see, a bright blue shirt. Electric!

Divine

Face of the day! A smudgy dark eye (I layered black and brown pencil because black by itself can look a bit harsh and cool toned) and a warm toned glossy lip. I’m wearing an orange lipstick with a flamingo pink gloss on top which created a lovely watermelon colour.
