Sinister, vampire-esque, lady of the night; dark Lips embody edge, and a supernatural factor. When I think of Dark Lips, I can’t help but think of Hannah Beth. Do any of you know, or remember Hannah Beth? Okay, let me tell you a quick story. There was this one time when I watched a full season of House of DVF. It’s a reality show about Diane Von Furstenburg, where she has to weed out the perfect brand ambassador amongst a bunch of girls, all vying for the opportunity. Each week they complete tasks, etc to impress Diane. Well Hannah Beth won and became the DVF brand ambassador. And, Hannah was notorious for wearing a bold, dark lip! So now whenever I think of dark lipsticks, and shades, well now you know why I think of her! Anyways, Three runway shows in particular have used dark lipsticks at LFW, and when 3 shows are doing something similar, it’s a trend. And I won’t stop there I’ll also talk about how you can perfect this lip trend for yourself.
2016 is the year of the lip and as much as I hate to say this name (I’m trying to keep my blog a Kardashians/ Jenner free zone for the most part) but Kylie Jenner inspired pouts are still in. It seems like the media just loves to throw out the name “Kylie Jenner” whenever a new celebrity is seen with fuller lips/injections. The latest example: Hailey Baldwin now has “Kylie Jenner level huge lips”. Gone are the days of throwing out Angelina Jolie’s name whenever an enlarged lip is spotted! Lips are one of the facial features that can draw someone in, like your significant other.
I’ve never been that girl who owned a lot of makeup, or put on a full face each day. Moisturizers, and other skin care products have always been my main priority, then makeup would follow. My usual face routine just involves a little concealer to my under eyes, and any little red spots. I then set my face with a subtle amount of powder, and a swipe of pink blush. For eyes, I use a bright, light reflecting eye shadow over the lid, and a hint of a dark brown shadow in the crease to give my eyes more dimension. Plus that swipe of mascara . As for lips chap stick is my HG, and sometimes a bold lipstick.
