As is everyone nowadays.

Dark lipstick requires confidence to wear. To be so bold and becoming. Drawing attention to the femme smile. It will beckon and it will seek and it will be beautiful. But dark lipstick can be quite unforgiving. A difficulty to attain. I note by the stained teeth or over-lined lips.

So with three lipsticks in hand, here is an easy way to wear dark lips!

Rather than a look to wear with a dark lip, I focused on how to perfect a dark lip.

All you truly need is a good lipstick, a pointed brush and some concealer. And practice. Lots and lots of practice. Dark lips is difficult to tame. Over-lining makes clowns, smudges turns tears and uneven cause annoyances. Applying dark lipstick is a fickle thing, but most definitely worth it.

I feel very badass in this getup. A denim button-up, black turban and dark lipstick makes me feel like I can punch someone and not break my hand. It never quite works out that way though. It ends with me apologising profusely and readjusting fractured bones.

I'm not as badass as dark lips would let you assume I am. It tricks you, and hopefully, I taught you a few tricks too.
