Do you think pulling off dark lipstick is just too hard and shy away from wearing them? I also felt as though dark lipstick was just too intimidating and rarely ventured far from wearing peaches and nudes. But, as much as I love nudes and light colored lipsticks, I always admired how vampy and sexy darker lipsticks looked on people. So, I decided to do some research on pulling off dark lipstick so girls like myself who normally don’t wear darker lip colors can pull it off with confidence!
1. Prep Lips
Before we get into the nitty gritty on pulling off dark lipstick, let’s talk lip prep. Since we’re smack dab in the middle of the cold weather right now, we mustn’t forget to give our lips a gentle scrub before applying our lipstick. You can pick up a lip exfoliant from Sephora or Ulta or you can make your own by combining sugar, coconut or olive oil and honey. Afterward, apply your favorite lip balm to keep lips soft and supple.
