I am a huuuge fan of dark lips, I find them chic and edgy at the same time. Until recently though, it never even crossed my mind to wear a burgundy or plummy color in the warmer half of the year.
But this summer, probably thanks to celebrities that have been rocking vampy shades on red carpets and to magazines that have featured dark lip looks more and more often, I’ve been thinking… WHY NOT?!
To me the key to sporting an eggplant lipstick when it’s 35° C outside is to choose a matte texture (preferably a pencil) and leave the rest of the face almost bare. In the picture above, I’m wearing mascara, bronzer and Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip, a waterproof lip liner, in shade 12C.
So what do you guys think? Is wearing dark lipstick in the summer a DO or a DON’T?
