After watching a fantastic dark lipstick tutorial by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, I felt inspired and decided to dig out all those lipsticks/glosses/pencils I have bought in the last few years and show them the light of day!
Some are very recent releases, some a few seasons old, but the one thing they all have in common is they are dark, often very dark. For the rest of this week (however long it takes really, I'll try not to bore you all stupid with it) I will be going through this part of my lipstick collection to show you the shades in detail. The aim is to put them in some kind of colour groupings but I'm not too sure how this will work in practice.
|The Dark Side: My Collection|
If you have any must-have dark lipsticks then do let me know. I haven't been able to trawl the makeup counters very much the last few years and have resorted to buying online, but I desperately miss being able to see lipsticks in their true form rather than poor computerised swatches. For that reason I love personal recommendations. The amount of choice of lipstick out there is staggering so it is always nice to have somewhere to start, be it a specific brand, formula or actual colour.
Now I just need to learn how to apply lipstick properly, these dark shades can be very unforgiving for those of shaky hand!
