‘COS MY LIPS ARE TOO BERRYLICIOUS FOR YOU BABY!
Pucker up with this season’s ripe pick of berry lipsticks, from blackberry tones to the bold and bright beautyberry. The moody shades suit even the palest of skin tones so be sure to add a touch of Gothic glamour to any outfit.
A look that resonated in the 90’s, berry lipsticks have been seen smudged into the world’s finest lips. The beauty look stained the lips of retro JLO and appeared on hit TV series, Friends, making an appearance on the fashion force that is Rachel Green.
When choosing colours for the berry lip look, don’t just plump for soft raspberry tones, go dark and think of the shades a fine Merlot has, and find it in makeup form. Pantone, the authority on colour, states that marsala is THE colour of the year and what does marsala resemble? Only a deep sophisticated berry, a fortified wine opposed to just any red!
IT’S ALL IN THE PREP
The key to achieving the perfect AW 15 pout is to prep those juicy lips of yours! Dark lipstick is a sucker for accentuating any flaws on your lips, so make sure to buff away any dryness with a soft toothbrush and slather on balm to keep them soft and supple.
Another great way to keep that smile of yours hydrated and flake free is to make sure you drink your recommended daily intake of water. Water is the key to keeping your smackers supple and flake free, so get sipping!
ALWAYS CHOOSE LIPS
For this look, less is more. Let your lips do that talking by keeping eye makeup minimal. The ally of the moody lip is the barely-there eye. Stick to a couple of layers of Spider Eyes Mascara to frame your peepers and if you feel like you need a little more definition, line to upper and lower rims of your eyes with Eye/ Lip Pencil in Raven.
50 SHADES OF BERRY
Choose the best colour for your skin tone that doesn’t wash out your complexion.
Pale Skin: Keep the dark shades of the berry subtle to perfectly match your skin. We recommend Manic Panic Daughter of Darkness Kitten Colours Lethal Lipstick smoothed on top of a thick layer of balm. The balm will act to dilute the colour and give a more sheer finish that won’t appear too dark again your alabaster skin.
Olive Skin: Tanned complexions love a berry lip. Your skin tone will pull off all shades of berry. Why not try a rich blackberry hue with Manic Panic Plum Passion Peacock Shimmer Lethal Lipstick. Or, if you are after a more classic colour, go Monroe with Manic Panic Marilyn Creamtones Lethal Lipstick.
Dark Skin: The darker skin tone looks amazing with a plum pout. Manic Panic Tramp Creamtones Lethal Lipstick is the ideal for a wine stained lip.
