17 Real Girls Show Us How to Wear Dark Lipstick
A deep, sultry lipstick shade is one of our Autumn must-haves, we just love how it can add amazing impact to any look. Picking the right bold lip shade is key to getting this look on point, so it's always worth trying out a few in different tones and finishes before you commit.
We love a matte formula for it's staying power, and a gloss for a super shiny finish that will fade into a stain. If you're frightened of going really dark, try pressing on the colour using your finger first — this will give you a lighter taste of the tone before you apply straight from the bullet or wand and go all the way with your lip colour. Purple-based shades are really on trend, but you can play safe with a deep blood red colour — as these suit almost every skin tone.
