When we think “summer”, everything from head to toe is light, bright, and white. And when it comes to makeup, rarely do we see anything dark (ok, except for eyeliner and maybe some bronzed skin). One of the beauty trends for spring this year was the dark lip. It was all over runways and red carpets, and it’s still a summer fave. Whether it’s black cherry, burgundy, or wine, a dark hue instantly makes a summery dress pop, and you’ll be a welcomed sight among all the coral and pink glosses. It’s easier to pull off then you think, and can make your look more sophisticated. Just keep the rest of your makeup simple by putting the focus on your sultry lips. I’ve rounded up a few of my faves from dark sheers to super pigmented “I’m going for it” lipsticks. So try incorporating one of these shades into your makeup routine to break the mold and do something bold!
