How to get that modern gothic look

The new modern gothic…dark lips a how to

I’m a fair skinned Middle Easterner so bold colors always look dramatic on me whether eyes or lips…and who doesn’t love a little drama!

This fall the dark lip is going to be everywhere and everyone is going to want to try it…but then the fear will set in…Is it too dark? Do I look like I’m trying too hard?  Is this trend only for the runway?  Am I too old/young?

EVERYONE can wear a dark hue, its finding the right hue for you ☺

What color are your eyes?  This will determine the best undertone to go with…yes your eyes are the best way to make that determination.  If you have light eyes you are aiming for something that has pink base.  Try something like Katy Kat Matte by Covergirl in Cat Call.

If your eyes are not too light or too dark try something blue based like Ruby Woo by MAC.  (Blue-Reds also look amazing if you great lip shape)

If your eyes are dark you want something with a brownish tone like Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Disturbed will be your best bet.

When going dark remember to use a lip liner that matches with your new color and use a lip brush to apply the color because of how rich the color can be its best to apply with a brush to control it.
