DARK LIPS : Not Just for Winter !

3:41 PM

Everyone associates dark vampy lips with winter ! Although dark lips show up a lot during fall and winter months, who said you can't rock a dark lip in the summertime? I think dark lips are especially great for a summer night out - pair it with is glowing skin and shimmering eyes to keep it fresh and dewy looking. Grab a good highlighter and some shimmery bronzer to go with your dark lip, and you can recreate this look! 

Lipstick Used here: Milani Black Cherry

Products Left to Right: MAC Soft & Gentle, Milani Black Cherry Lipstick, theBalm MaryLou Manizer, MAC Diva. 

For the makeup look pictured above, I used MAC's Soft & Gentle and theBalm's Mary Lou Manizer highlighters. Both of these highlighters are absolutely beautiful and give an amazing glow to the skin. I used Milani's Black Cherry on the lips. I pictured MAC's Diva lipstick here because I know it's a popular MAC shade and a lot of people have it - so it is definitely an alternative to Milani's but Milani's is a LOT more affordable and smells so amazing !
