Rihanna looks stunning on the cover of the December issue of Elle magazine. She rocks a dark lip, glossy lids and beautifully highlighted skin. You can easily achieve this bold lip by following the Bombshells 5 rules for rocking dark lipstick.
Rule #1. Keep it simple.
Only highlight one feature at a time! If you decide to highlight your lips with an intense color, keep it neutral on all other features.
Rule #2. Keep the lipstick off of your teeth.
Smiling with lipstick on your teeth sucks!! To avoid this, make a O shape around your index finger after you are finish applying your lipstick and gently pull your finger out. All the lipstick that was on the inside of your lips is now on your finger. It’s the inner lip make-up that rubs on your teeth.
Rule #3. Keep lips lined.
To get the perfect lip remember to stay in the lines. Make sure lips are lined to avoid bleeding of color. If bleeding still occurs, try outlining the colored lip with concealer.
Rule #4. Make sure your lips are prepped.
The more pigment in the lipstick the dryer the lip can become during extended wear. To avoid dryness, try exfoliating your lips with Lush’s Bubble Gum Sugar. Follow with lip balm and lipstick.
Rule #5. Rock the right color!
Make sure you are rocking the right color for your skin tone. If you have a cool skin tone stick to blue based colors. If your skin tone is on the warm side you look great in brownish shades.
Don’t be intimated by dark lipstick. Be bold, follow our tips and stay flawless this winter!
