Fall Beauty Trends / THE DARK VELVET LIP

Leave a comment

As you have probably concluded by now, this falls trends include a seamless mixture of bold and natural, but this one is definitely one of the more attention catching ones, THE DARK VELVET LIP / a new take on gothic.

 First, most importantly, for this look, adding the bold lip to a much more natural look is key for wearability. Lisa added the lip to the previous look (the sculpted eye) but you could add it to your everyday makeup or to one of the more natural looks for fall’s trends. For the lip, start with a very dark, red wine shade all over the lips (Lisa used NARS’ scarlet empress lipstick), following your natural shape. Then, go in with a lip liner the same color as the lipstick to add longevity and increase intensity. An optional step, use black liner on the outside corners of the lip to really help definite the gradual shades of color. Finish with a bright pop of cherry red lipstick in the center of the lips, then blend to make the look cohesive.
