Although wearing dark lip color may seem intimidating, you don’t have to be a vampire to pull off the look. You just need to find the depth of color that works with your lip tone.
If you’re fair, try Mac Viva Glam, perfect for pale skin. Darker complexions can experiment with deeper berry shades like Givenchy Rouge Interdit Lipstick in Black Plum. To avoid lipstick bleeding, use a matching lip liner.
When it comes to the rest of your makeup, go for a more subtle look. Apply neutral eye shadow or go bare so the color on your eyelids doesn’t compete with your lips. Eyeliner and plenty of black mascara with your power pout works just right to balance the look.
