Deep lips. The right shade for your features.
Since the Grammy's 2014 dropped it has been apparent that deep and dark lips are in full swing. Did you see Lorde's Burgundy lip?? Super hot. I personally love a dark lip BUT you can make or break this look super easily, there are four undertones when it comes to burgundy: pink, brown, blue, and red and if you don't pick the proper hue it can mix the wrong way with your features.
If you're one of those lucky people with gorgeous blue, grey or light green eyes a burgundy lipstick with a pink base is perfect for you. Yaby cosmetics has gorgeous lipsticks. They are smooth, come in a variety of gorgeous colors, and are super easy to mix. LC044 is a great example of a pink based burgundy. The pink undertones will make your eyes pop. As you can see below the color is GORGEOUS.
Now for you dark eyed beauties the most beneficial for you is to stick with brown undertone burgundy shades, regularly seen on celebrities such as Leighton Meester and Camilla Belle who as we all know are both stunners. LC025 by Yaby is gorgeous on it's own or used on top of another shade. The nice thing about the Yaby lipsticks is that they are incredibly workable and have some of the same qualities of a lip stain. Which is perfect for a lip that you don't want moving on you.
Blue based burgundy's are a great choice for everyone! The base isn't to light or to dark so it works for all eye hues, Face Atelier makes a fantastic shade called "Red Fuschia" It is beautifullllllll ! I am a sucker for a good red lipstick, so I can't help but gush over this one.
Rihanna is my all time favorite to see rocking a DEEP red burgundy lip. I think its a mix between her gorgeous skin tone as well as her brunette locks. Generally dark burgundy lips look best when your hair is darker, but there isn't a law against wearing dark lipstick haha so feel free to rock it if you please. My favorite shade of lipstick ever is Face Atelier's deep burgundy called "Revenge." One of my go to colors for personal use as well as in my kit. It's creamy, easy to use, and long lasting.
Don't let the idea of a dark lip scare you, let it intrigue you. I think you'll be pleased with the outcome.
