It looks like the SS12 lip is a vampy one as dark power lips have been transported from A/W to Summer. Who ever said fashion was straight-forward!?
A-listers were out with all their might at the MET ball rocking dark plum lips on the red carpet. Keeping it super-glam and super-stylish celebs from Kate Bosworth, Camilla Belle and Lana Del Rey found the perfect gothic shade.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different undertones, such as brown, red and purple, to match your complexion and hair colour. Fairer skin tones should stick with berry’s and reds, medium skin tones match perfectly with burgundy and maroon, whilst darker skin tones can pull off browns and wine colours! For an all round effect sleek hair and elegant up-do’s compliment the look without making it too OTT!
Let your lips do the talking this summer and brave a bold, dark lip but remember to keep the rest of the face to a minimum… and keep away from glitter! Too much vamp is not cool!
