Festive season is around the corner and you surely want to be on-trend. The latest beauty fancy of Bollywood divas are dark lips. From black cherry to vampy plum, many fashionistas like Sonam Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone are wearing darkest of the lip colours this season. We can’t emphasise enough that dark lips will rule all through the fall season.
Internationally also black lips are hot, with models on runways and celebrities like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner rocking darker hues.
It can be hard to pull off. If not done right, you might end up looking scary. The key to carry gothic lips is to keep rest of the makeup subtle. Don’t do much eyemakeup and avoid blush.
If you have fair skin, pick a rich cranberry shade with red undertones. For medium skin tone, burgandy works best and for darker skin tone, blackberry is the colour.
Priyanka Chopra was recently seen in Live with Kelly’s show for promoting her daily soap. She wore Bobbi Brown’s best selling lippy in the colour Black Cherry. It is a darkened red-plum lipstick with a glossy finish.
Pairing dark eye makeup with statement lips is always difficult to pull off. Kangana Ranaut smartly balanced her look, wearing black eyeshadow and deep wine lips to go with her pink satin dress. She kept rest of her face dewy.
Sonam Kapoor wore black cherry lipstick with separates. It is good to see her experimenting with her makeup, but the shimmery eyeshadow on the lids with gothic lips didn’t quite go well. To be on a safer side, you can copy her look minus the eyeshadow.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wore cherry red lipstick with gold Sabyasachi suit was a smart move. She kept rest of her face neutral, which balances the dark lips.
