Give ’em Some Lip: The Best of the Dark Trend

darky

I will admit I always thought lipstick was for old ladies and lip gloss was for teenyboppers. Recently though I’ve turned the corner. Still don’t love lipgloss but I love a nice bold lip. And let’s face it no Chapstick can accomplish this. But being a Chapstick fiend I cannot stand my lips to be even the slightest but dry which makes lipsticks a bit tricky. Thanks to the innovative beauty industry there is a slew of other options out there from crayons, to stains, to plumping creams. (No not crayola crayons, although they should consider branching out. They would have the ultimate selection.)

Okay back to lips. So I have a big nose and always thought with that I should never play up my lips. It would just draw attention to the shnoz hovering above it. But here I am with a 3 page long wishlist of colorful lippies.

Besides the classic true red lip that is always in style a new deeper, more sultry plum version is all the rage right now. After all, we’ve all gotten accustomed to the “goth” trend and many of us, including myself, LOVE it.

*ALSO A LITTLE TRICK if you don’t want to buy more lipstick or just can’t find the right shade mix a little black, brown, or grey eyeliner into your lips till you get it the way you want. Also if you’d like to make a red lipstick more plum looking add some dark purple eyeliner </strong>
