Dark Lipstick Tutorial

Monday

My first makeup tutorial for the year 2017 will be this dark lip tutorial! I know some of you are a fan of dark lip colors, that’s why I want to share a simple and easy way to apply them. There is also a makeup technique that I love to do when I want to turn my lipstick into a matte-looking finish. I have always been a fan of matte finishes for lipcolors, ranging from natural to bold colors. I think it looks lovely! Not only do I love how it looks, it is long-wearing too! Here are a few easy steps to follow:

Step 1: Use lip liner that has a color close to your lipstick shade. Apply it completely over your lips. In case you didn’t know, lip liners make your lipstick stay longer, as it acts as a base for your lipstick. It can also change your lipstick color if you try to mix them together. See my post about changing lip tone color.

Step 2: Apply your favorite dark lipstick completely over your lips. I like to use lip brush, so I can control the application on the edges of my lips. Unless you have a wand like liquid lip color, you may use the wand too.

Step 3: Use a translucent powder with a blending brush to dust over your lips. This helps keep your lipstick shine-free and have a more matte look.

That it, done! I told you it’s easy!

What kind of makeup look do you like to wear with your dark lipstick? I like simple eyeshadow with bold brows :-)

(I used Lorac Pro Contour Palette for my mirror.)
