The great makeup trend of autumn 2016 is the "dark" lip. We're introducing goth-chic with ultra-dark colors.
This trend has made a comeback a few years ago, and this autumn, it's back with its beautiful burgundy reds, dark plums, chestnut and even black.

Who can use dark lipstick?
It's not a trend that everyone can opt for, unfortunately. Dark reds tend to emphasize the features. Dark skinned people can go for wine dye hues, while light skinned gals can choose from a more diverse range of dark hues, as this trend suits them well.
Note that dark lipsticks also tend to shrink the lips, so if yours are very thin, forget it!

How do we wear dark red lipstick?
- The complexion should be perfect but your skin should give a bare illusion.
- Choose light makeup on the eyes and skin.
- Make sure that your lips are perfectly hydrated.
- Draw and fill your lips with a lip contour before applying your dark red lipstick.
