Extremely dark lips - fashion trend of autumn 2017

Make-up with dark lips is one of the most stable trends: it does not come out of the top of the beauty tags on Instagram for at least three years and gives way to the championship except in summer, when light colors change. But every fall comes back as an alarm clock. There are several reasons for this popularity. First: although it is not new, it is still unusual. The second: a bright emphasis on lips saves, when you need to be “during the parade,” and there is a catastrophically no time for a full make-up. Third: dark matte lipstick usually pleased with stamina.

There are drawbacks too. Negligence here is not permissible: the hand must not flinch a millimeter when you draw the contour, and in order to achieve such mastery, you will have to fail more than one attempt. In addition, if we are talking about matte coatings (they are, as already noted above, the best lasting option), then you should be prepared for the fact that such beauty products dry lips - it is better to moisturize their delicate skin with a balm beforehand.

Now what to do with the rest of the face if the choice fell on a dark lipstick. First, the perfect tone is important. The dark covering of the lips will play on the contrast (especially if you have fair skin) and will make all defects more noticeable. So do not feel sorry for foundation, concealer, highlighter. Minimalism in the eyes (only mascara) - a win-win option. But you can experiment and draw arrows (not necessarily black, but in the color of lipstick, for example). What is absolutely impossible, so it is smokey eyes. This option is only for a bright photo in instagram, but not for real life.
