Who can already imagine a makeup without dark lips? As for the colors, the Bordeaux and red wine are still kings, but the purple’ vamp’, dark brown and explosive roses come stepping hard.

If you want to say goodbye to your boring looks, don’t hesitate to paint your lips with these colors. The key is to look for a perfect coverage, totally opaque, so that your mouth is very seductive and sensual. And what’s missing to complete the best lip look? The finish.

Undoubtedly, dark lips occupy an indisputable space within your makeup, but their triumph will be even more assured if you use a matte lipstick. This finish also came on strong last season, and has caused a total fever, as with a couple of passes the color is much stronger and brighter. This has led many brands to launch special collections with this finish for their lipsticks.




It is recommended that your lips are moisturized before applying it, so that the color is better distributed and there are no lumps. You can also rub them with a toothbrush in gentle circular movements, as you will reactivate the circulation of the area and improve the texture by removing dead cells.

Once done, you can add a few more touches of color with the fingertip, to give it a more natural point. If you feel like the color is totally matt and you don’t find the tone you like, you can try applying compact or loose powders by using a pad or wide brush. To get more volume you can do the following trick: apply a touch of beige concealer to the center of your lips.
