Berry Lips

Danna <our lovely Beauty Consultant> is back with all the details on perfecting a bold berry lip!


As the cooler weather is coming in and sweaters are coming out, a fun way to switch up your makeup is with a deeper darker lip. I know a lot of you are saying, you can’t wear dark lips, but you can with a few tips and tricks!

~  I would suggest using a fuller matte coverage foundation. You want to cover up any shadows or redness in your skin in order to allow the lips to be the focal point of the look.

~  2  Use a heavy hand when applying your blush. You don’t want to look washed out or dead when you’re wearing a vampy lip. A little extra blush will balance out the lip.

~  Eyes should be kept simple. Try a neutral matte shadow all over lid and crease then go over the lid with a bit of shimmer. To save time and money, use your highlighter for the lid. Balance out the dark lip by using black winged eyeliner. Curl your lashes and add tons and tons of mascara.

~  If your lips are uneven, use a lip pencil and spend some time over drawing them where you need to add fullness.

~  Apply the lipstick in thin layers to make it wear longer, then go back in with your pencil and perfect where you have overdrawn your lips. If you have smaller lips, use a matte lipstick, if you have fuller lips, you could get away with using a satin. 

~  After you have applied your lipstick, step back and look at yourself in the mirror and make sure everything is cohesive. You can adjust the look by adding a bit more eyeshadow and/or blush. If you’re still not comfortable with the look, dab off a bit of the lipstick to get more of a stained look instead of it being completely opaque.

XOXO,
Danna
