Anyone here love wearing dark lipsticks for fall? Are any of you hesitant to wear a darker shade? Well today, I’ll be sharing how to apply dark lipstick like a pro, and how to enjoy this look without looking gothic, but fab! Wearing a dark shade of lipstick can be intimidating and messy, especially if you don’t wear it often. However, with a few simple steps you’ll love wearing it, and with confidence! Below are some simple steps to follow. I’m also sharing on today’s post how I colored my hair at home, with the help of >Schwarzkopf Color Ultime. Scroll down for tutorials!

1) Exfoliate and Moisturize – Before applying your dark lipstick, make sure to exfoliate your lips to get rid of flakes. This gives you a smooth surface and even base before applying your lipstick. I like to use a simple mixture of sugar and some olive oil. I then rinse with warm water. Don’t forget to moisturize your lips afterwards with your favorite lip conditioner.

2) Pick your dark lipstick – Choose the right shade by focusing on your undertone. I like to use lip brush when applying dark lipstick so I can control where to apply it. I blot with a tissue and reapply again. Lipliners are optional.

3) Balance the look – When wearing dark lipstick, it’s better to opt for a simple look by having a clean eye makeup look, adding a touch of blush or bronzer (to compliment your dark lips), and filling up your brows. However, if you are going for a more dramatic look at night, you may go for a different eye makeup look.

I also want to share with you all how I colored my hair using Schwarzkopf Color Ultime in Cinnamon Brown, available at Walmart. I just had a haircut a few weeks ago to get a new look for this new season. It was also because it was hard to maintain my long hair with my three little kids around… I often color my hair at home and my mom would help me out. Since she wasn’t visiting the United States this year, I had a chance to color my hair on my own. I actually felt nervous not having assistance, but surprisingly, it wasn’t as hard as I thought! Schwarzkopf has a ready to mix color cream and application bottle with developer lotion. It’s convenient to use and you can see the results beforehand! Here’s how I did it.

Prepare these items above before coloring your hair so they’re easy to grab. Don’t forget to wear your gloves. Cover your clothes with an old towel and grab a watch so you can time the process. To start the application, unscrew the application bottle and pierce the tube of the Color Cream tube. Squeeze this Color Cream inside the application bottle and close the lid firmly. Then, start shaking it to mix all the creams together. Make sure you hold the bottle away from you, so that when removing the cap it won’t squirt out on your face. Unscrew the upper cap and start applying directly from the Application Bottle onto your dry, unwashed hair.

For a full head application, apply the cream throughout all of your hair thoroughly, strand after strand. I focus more on my gray hairs. I used a dye brush that my mom left here at home. Allow the hair color mixture to work for 30 minutes.

After the process time, rinse your hair with warm water until it runs clear. Afterwards, shampoo and rinse well. It also comes with Intense Conditioning Treatment to massage into your towel dried hair. Wait for 2-3 minutes after massaging, then rinse your hair thoroughly.
