A DYNAMIC DUO : DARK ALLURE



THE VAMPY BORDEAUX MATCHING LIPS & TIPS?  Yes please! Mysterious Dark lips trend: aside from a mix of sheer panic and a bit of that impossible to resist mystery and sex-appeal oozed by dark lipstick, the very thought of wearing maroon, dark red, purple, black lips in 2015-2016 Fall is beautiful and scary… Not for me. I’ve always been a fan of vampy lips like forever. The beauty trend that has been driving my parents crazy in the 90’s, every time I’d sneak out the house in really dark brown/red/berry lips is having a major comeback for sometime now and is going nowhere. It’s ON more powerful than ever, in a way thats more 90s mixed with a bit of 70s Jonathan Saunders kinda dark accents. Very glam but dark. It’s high fashion but a bit grungy too…It’s all about the shade and matching it with your skin tone, hair colour, eyes. If you're clueless in this area – advise wise – I will only say this: test it. Test, test, test, test every dark shade you find and you love on yourself, and if it looks good, rock it.

Think stained lips by berries or dark wine (I know I can pull that one off way too easy). Dramatic and insane. This romantic lip pairs perfectly with a deep, sophisticated nail colour .


WHERE TO WEAR: Anywhere really…Dark berry lips, purple, maroon, dark red are actually very, very sophisticated lipsticks that work for most occasions, yes, even office I’d venture to say…Break out the vampy plum with a little velvet number to impress just enough at your company holiday party. Especially at night.


PAIRS WELL WITH: A dark corner, mistletoe, and yep your office crush date.
