Vamp up your make-up look this February with seven of the best dark lipstick shades
Words Joy Montgomery
It’s official: dark red lipstick is the beauty trend to note this season. Spotted on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Dior and Sibling, this vampish look is no longer the reserve of glamorous evening ‘dos, with chic daytime ensembles being toughened up with a slick of deep dark rouge.
From plum and berry to daring purple and blood red, there’s a shade to suit every skin tone. Ensure the look is kept modern with a flawless, dewy complexion and minimal eye make-up – a dash of black mascara will do.
