Dark Lips for Holiday...

While I usually sport a pink or nude lip color on a day-to-day basis, over the past year I have started to embrace more color.  Around this time of year, I start to crave rich reds, brilliant bordeauxs and of course, a pop of pink!

Dark lip shades are not to be feared and can be quite a liberating break from the norm. Below are some of my tips to prep your lips and some of my favorite shades for the season. Enjoy!
Exfoliate your lips with a good sugar scrub (I love Fresh’s!) and treat with a soothing lip balm. Blot lips.

Secret tip: I dab on a bit of liquid concealer to cancel out my natural lip color. Why? Because cancelling out your natural lip shade will show the true color of the lip color you’re going to apply, so your results will be the exact color shown in the tube. Pretty cool huh?! Line lips with liner of your choice. You could match the lipstick color or go for a nude.  I usually do a nude. 

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Apply color with brush or straight from the tube. Smile gorgeous!
