8 Badass Ways to Pull Off Dark Lipstick This Winter
Bring out your inner rockstar with these vampy plums, brick reds and blacks
Our favorite way to unleash our inner badass is with vampy dark lips, of course. "Deep, plummy reds are definitely on trend this year and will keep coming," says Los Angeles makeup artist Brittany Spyksma. We're seeing plenty of purples, browns and blacks, as well.
A lot of women shy away from dark lips, staying firmly in the pink and nude zone. We get it; it's safe there. "But don't be afraid to try something new," Spyksma encourages. "If you don't think you can wear a dark lip, you just haven't found the right color." (We're here to change that.)
If you're afraid of looking too made up, try lightening up your eyes. A gentle flick of black eyeliner and mascara with a dark lip is simple and chic, says Spyksma.
Now, onto the lips. For all your dark lipstick inspo this winter, look no further this roundup of our favorite looks -- ranked from most wearable to most badass.
