BEAUTY BAR: Everybody’s Got A Dark Side

Fall is finally here! The leaves on the trees are changing to beautiful, darker shades, and your lipstick should be transitioning to darker shades as well. As indicated by many fashion trends and reports, a deep red lip is all the rage for this season. Not to say other lip colors aren’t in, but this is my all time favorite. This Fashionista is clearly rocking this current trend. With a dark lip and thick eyelashes, she is definitely ready for the fall season.

This Fashionista paired her deep red lip with subtle makeup and neutral eye colors. Wearing minimum accessories and darker clothing, her main focus was on her bold lips. When using dark makeup, it is always best to stick with neutrals in order to keep the look natural and to make your lips a focus point. Often, many people try to pair deep lips with deep eye shadows, which can work for a night out or during Halloween, but should not be used for an everyday look.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Experiment with darker lip shades in order to find one that matches your complexion best. Just remember to keep the rest of your look as natural as possible! To get this Fashionista’s look, you’ll need three key items. The first is a lip pencil in order to create a solid foundation for the lipstick and to prevent the lipstick from feathering. Secondly you will need a matte deep red lipstick. This shade from Nars Cosmetics is stunning. To complete your look, mascara is needed to create a little pop on your eyes to pair with your dark lips.
