Berry lips are bold and make you look confident. And if your application is faultless, there’s no reason to feel shy. Follow these three steps.
Right now there is a 90s trend revival and dark lips are having a moment. Dark lips instantly give you sex appeal and mystery. They key to the perfect dark lip is lip pencil. You want to create a clean and neat outline for your lips. No smudging or bleeding!
1 Start with your cupid’s bow – the area in the centre of your top lip. Sketch the -v- using a sharpened lip pencil in a deep red or dark brown and the work outwards to the corners of your mouth. Also outline your bottom lip.
2 For extra colour longevity you can now fill in your entire mouth using the lip pencil and then top it off with your favourite dark lipstick, stain or gloss.
3 Finish the look by using a mini beautyblender and a light dusting of translucent powder around the edges of your lips. This will set your foundation. It also keep the area around your lips matte and thereby prevent your dark lip colour from moving or feathering.
TOP TIP If you made a mistake and have a smudge use an earbud dipped in makeup remover to clean up the smudge. Then use a concealer brush and a touch of foundation to line outside your lips. This will give your mouth a crisp edge again for that ultimate vixen pout!
