Our Favourite Way To Wear Dark Lipstick


How to wear dark lipstick Indian skin

It’s October, and even if the weather isn’t cooling down the way it’s supposed to (thanks, global warming!) we’re still feeling an itch for a switch – when it comes to our lips, that is. We’re retiring the pinks and peaches of summer for something a bit darker and more mysterious – the maroon lip! Here’s our favourite way to wear it –

Now that we’re done with the why, here’s a quick note on the how – when you’re wearing a darker lip, you want to make sure that your working with a baby-smooth foundation, so don’t forget to exfoliate + hydrate your lips before you get started!

And don’t worry about the application – whether you’re feeling a hint of berry with a light stain applied with your fingertips or an all out hue applied straight from the bullet, like we did here – you do you!
