If you’ve been under the impression that the perfect pout requires a trip to your mall cosmetics counter, it’s time to take a look around at all the fabulous products available just around the corner. I, for one, admit to being skeptical about dishing out almost $10 bucks on drugstore beauty products, but one must take the plunge when it comes to perfecting her makeup game. Am I right?
Dark lips are a go-to for creating a vampy look for the upcoming spring, but the burgundy and wine varieties are far from unique at this point. Opt for a dark purple shade to stand out from the crowd this Valentines Day. We are loving Revlon’s ColorBurst Matte Lip Balm in “Shameless” for a striking dose of saturated color complete with velvety texture. Whether sipping on cocktails or planting a big smooch on your man’s cheek, this lip color is meant to stay. Beauty lovers needn’t travel to MAC to get their deep purple fix any longer.
It was just last year that our lipstick arsenal was filled with glossy styles galore, but we’ve ditched our high-shine products in favor of sophisticated mattes with an unmistakable allure. Use a dark matte lip to seal the deal on a ton of stylish outfits. When sporting a look so bold, keep all other aspects of your beat face on the laid-back side. A brown and copper combination is an ideal pairing for a striking purple lip. Rock this fierce look with anything from a black jumpsuit to a flirty bodycon dress to make a statement this spring. For an effortless look sure to blow your onlookers away, opt for a slicked back hairstyle that puts the full focus on your gorgeous face.
