If once dark lipstick was associated with a goth makeup, dramatic and often not wearable for all styles, now it can become part of your look by being elegant, sophisticated and absolutely wearable. Find out what steps to take to wear dark lipstick and make your makeup unique.

Dark lipsticks: which ones to choose based on your complexion

Not all shades of lipstick can give all complexions, especially when it comes to nudes and dark colors. In fact, it is necessary to evaluate, in the case of deeper lipsticks, two main parameters:

  • the hue of your complexion, which can be light, medium or dark
  • the undertone , which can be warm or cold

In this way, even by intuition, you will choose a color that meets your expectations and adapts to your complexion and undertone. If you have a fair and warm complexion and choose a lipstick that is dark, but with a cold undertone (more purplish than reddish), it is normal that you have difficulty wearing it, regardless of the makeup you choose to match. In the case of this complexion you can apply Formidable or Persistant , while if your undertone is cold they are perfect Tetue or Fanatique .

Make sure you carry out proper lip preparation by using one scrub and applying a good lip balm, to allow uniform application of the product. Don’t forget to define the edges with a pencil of the same color as the lipstick: you will be able to make the product last longer and avoid any kind of smudging.

For a perfect application of the lipstick, both liquid and stick, you can use a lip brush. Finally, clean up the edges with the same concealer that you used on the face, using a small precision brush (preferably angled by eyeliner or flat for eyeshadow).

Dark lipsticks: how to enhance them with the right makeup

Crediti @pnmakeup

There are various looks that can be combined with dark lipsticks. If you love to dare, you can create a monochromatic look: one smokey eye or a graphic eyeliner in the same color as the lipstick, combined with a slightly lighter shade of blush. The effect may seem strong but still trendy and glam!

If you prefer a lighter makeup, combine your lipstick with a very bright complexion and a line of eyeliner well defined: you will have all eyes on your lips, but the makeup will not be unbalanced at all.

If you don’t like applying eyeliner, you can opt for a simple, glamorous and very luminous makeup on the shades most suitable for your eyes, which also match your lipstick: if you have blue eyes prefer a makeup in shades of rose gold, if you have them green eyes opt for a bronze or copper makeup, and finally for a makeup with silvery tones and more golden if you have them brown eyes.
