2. Too Dark Lip ColorProblem: Dark lip shades (such as colors in brown, black, purple or maroon -- think goth) can look aging.
Solution: Avoid lining lips with dark lip liner at all costs, especially if you're not planning to fill them in. If dark lips are a look you're deeply attached to, try a different version of it. Shift to a dark lip gloss if you must, or a sheer version of what you're used to. Try Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, $14,which is a sheer but deep berry color. Another option is to try a sheer lip pencil if you want your look to last, since glosses and sheer lipsticks tend to wear off more quickly. Reapplying more often is a minimal trade-off for a more youthful and modern look.
