Hot Trend: Wine-Stained Lips
Scared of the vampy statement lip? The dark lip trend isn't as hard to pull off as it may seem. From mulberry lipstick to deep berry stains, find your perfect shade here
Except this year, the trendy shade shift wasn't from cherry to raspberry. No, all the cool kids are flaunting vampy, dark lipsticks that look like they were pulled straight from the "Twilight" series. And of course, when the models and celebs do it, they pull off the trend flawlessly.
Skip ahead to see how to master the dark lipstick trend.
I'm the first to admit that I -- like a lot of women -- am guilty of staying in the classic red and pink lipstick zone. Who can blame us? It's safe there. We know what undertones work with our complexions and which don't. This whole gothic glamour fad is foreign territory and frankly, a little scary. After all, no one wants to look like Morticia Addams -- on a bad day.
Which is why we devised a little crash course for all of you dark lipstick newbies. First step: Find the right shade for your skin tone. We've spotted nearly every star in Hollywood wearing a version of this trend (glossy, matte, and stains), which means it actually can work for women with every kind of complexion.
