Wintertime Fine

It's winter time and what better way to spice up your look than with some amazing lipstick colors? Winter time is best know for its deep, dark, and subtle colors. I've provided some lipstick colors that are my personal favs for the fall/winter. Swatches provided below:

I'm a lipstick addict!! I cannot stress it enough. Needless to say, it's winter time and it's time to get deep. No matter your complexion, never be afraid to play with color. Dark purples, plums, deep red, chocolate browns, and burgundies are in this season. Here are some examples on how to "vamp" up your look!

When it comes to me with make-up, I say go bold, but don't go crazy! Here are a few Do's and Don'ts for wearing dark lipstick: 

Don't wear black lipstick for an everyday look. You will look super goth and super crazy. Try wearing it for a party or editorial purposes. For example, photo-shoots or runways.

When wearing a bold lip color, keep your eye make-up simple and subtle. Use neutral colors and let your lips draw all of the attention.

Make sure to keep your lips nice and smooth by exfoliating them. (Refer to our DIY section for a homemade lip exfoliant.) You wouldn't want your beautiful lipstick to build up in the cracks of your lips. It is not very appealing, especially with dark colors.

Make sure you keep your lip color neat because, knowing me, I tend to get lipstick on everything! Bold colors can stain, so be careful.

Oh and don't forget to do a teeth check :)
