Dark lips are a stunning evening look, but can be hard to master. Professional make up artist Philippa Louise shows you how to apply dark lipstick and how to make it stay put in this step-by-step guide.
You Will Need
- lip liner
- lip brush
- translucent powder
- To create a plain base for the lip colour, apply some foundation to the lips first.
- Lip liner is essential for dark or strong lipsticks. Start lining the lips at the centre of the top lip, also known as the cupid's bow.
- Apply the lipstick with a brush and add more liner to fill in any gaps.
- To ensure the colour lasts longer, split a tissue in half, place on the lips and brush over some translucent powder.
