I adore dark red lipstick. When I first began wearing lipstick, that was not the case. Deep-toned hues can be intimidating to wear. Today I share tips to pull off a dark-coloured lip.
1. Exfoliate your lips
An important tip for wearing dark lipstick is to start with a smooth base. Exfoliating your lips ensures that the colour won’t settle into any dry patches. I often exfoliate my lips with a lip scrub or clean toothbrush.
2. Apply concealer to the edges of your lips to reduce any mistakes
Dark lipstick can get messy. If your lipstick bleeds, apply concealer to the natural lip line to reduce discolouration.
3. Prime the lips
Applying primer to the lips will ensure that lip colour will show its true shade. Priming the lips with a translucent colour also prevent feathering. If you don’t have a lip primer, a light concealer will work in a pinch!
