Fall Dark Lips: Finding a Happy Medium
While discussing the dark blood burgundy lip look in a recent post, “Dark Lips: Va-va-Voom or Vampiress?” almost all agreed. They love the color, but feel that not all can wear a dark matte liptick successfully. I would classify myself as an example of one that “cannot.”
I love the idea of the dark lip shade; love the deep beautiful Bing cherry color. This weekend I was able to visit a local beauty boutique in Park City called the Splendor Beauty Emporium, and perused the counters for a shade that could satisfy my desire for the dark lip look. I opted for the NARS lip gloss in Rose Birman, a sheer cranberry (worn in this picture by Amanda). I almost went for the next darker shade, Rose Gitane, which is classified as a sheer sangria.
My friend Bionic Beauty has fallen in love with NARS Lipstick shade in Captiva, which offers a sheer tint of currant, and would be perfect for those who are looking for a more sheer dark lip option. If you are fan of Clinque, the immensely popular “Almost Lipstick” in Black Honey is a deeper sheer color that I would recommend trying.
Now, that I have found a happy medium on the dark lip look I would like to find a gorgeous gray eye shadow palette. I have been looking at Stila’s Backstage Beauty Eye Shadow Palette– The Red Carpet Look. The three pan grey palette along with a Smokey Quartz Kajal eyeliner looks ideal.
