Mauve, cherry, wine stained, even lavender- all of these shades have made a big splash in beauty as go to lip colors. The once coveted “winter” lipstick shade of berry is now trending as a go-to summer color. Vamp life need not be only in the winter anymore. Sport a bold, dark lip during summer nights and don’t be afraid to heat things up.
The trick to wearing berry shade lips anytime of the year: keep the rest of your face light! Minimal eye makeup really allows your bold lips to pop instead of clash. Use plenty of highlighter on your face to illuminate and give a nice contrast to your rather matte, monotone lips. Bold up those brows and bam, you’ve mastered the very berry beauty look!
Hands look elongated, thin and elegant when nails are coated with a merlot shade polish. Acceptable for anytime of the year, dazzle those digits in lilac, burgundy, or violet for a pop of play. Add a design or add a matte topcoat for added flair.
