How to wear dark lipstick

Dark lipstick is making a comeback, so you'll want to be sure to have a shade or two in your makeup bag this fall. This trendy look isn't hard to pull off – you just have to make sure that you follow a few basic rules.

Choose the right shade
Before you even think about applying dark lipstick, you have to find the perfect shade. If you have fuller lips, it's best to use a matte formula. If you want to pump up the volume, go for the gloss. Celebs are sporting deep wine and berry hues like moody merlot, which look great on any skin tone.

Keep it simple
Wearing dark lipstick  makes a bold statement, so it's important to keep the rest of your look simple. You don't want to go too pale – you might end up looking a bit goth. Instead, highlight your natural features. Apply a bit of concealer, sweep on some bronzer, curl your lashes and add a touch of mascara. Neutral eyeshadows like taupe and beige are best for a night on the town.

Use a pencil
Because your color choice is so daring, it's important that your lipstick stays in place. Choose a lip pencil the same shade as your lipstick and use short strokes to trace the border of your lips. Fill everything in, sweep on the moody merlot and finish off the look by blotting with a tissue.
