Beauty Trend: Dark Lip Color – Two Lips That Pass in the Night

November 18, 2008 by SheFindsKimM

Not every woman will be able to carry off the dark, almost Black lip shades that hit the runways this fall. Women at either end of the skin color spectrum will find the deep red and purple lip colors most wearable. Dark complexioned women can wear them because the sultry colors look more natural on them. Fair skinned women can wear darker colors, too, as the high contrast gives a dramatic, Goth effect (if you’re into that sort of thing).  However, for those of us in the middle, finding a suitable dark color may prove more difficult. Make the most of the trend by first determining the right shade for you. Cool shades for cool skin tones (pink, olive and some ebony skins) and warm shades for warm skin tones (yellow/golden, peach and reddish brown). Cosider using a lip pencil to maintain a tidy lip line, and keep the rest of your makeup subtle. Cross over to the dark side wearing Smashbox’s limited edition Wicked Lovely Lip Gloss and Liner, both perfect for this look. Get them at sephora.com.
