Dark Lips: Yes, Marilyn Manson Has Started A Trend

Not every woman will be able to carry off the dark, almost black lip shades that are everywhere this fall. But women at extreme ends of the skin color spectrum will find the deep red and purple lip colors wearable for different reasons. 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). Opt for a lip pencil/dark gloss combo, instead of a heavy matte shade, and keep the rest of your makeup pretty subtle. Cross over to the dark side wearing Smashbox’s limited edition Wicked Lovely Lip Gloss in Sultry ($18) and Liner in Tempt ($16), both perfect for this look.
