With fall around the corner, the dark lip colors are back in style and we couldn’t be any happier.
Beyonce wore a 20s-style headdress which led her and her makeup artist, Francesca Tolot, to go for a beauty look that was retro, modern, and bold all in one.
STEP 1: Begin with a primer. It’s important to create a smooth, blank canvas for a flawless finish.
STEP 2: Follow with concealer and foundation. For those in more humid areas, you can use a BB Creme instead to achieve that even skin tone while allowing your skin to breathe if concealer and foundation is too heavy for the climate that you live in.
STEP 3: Apply an illuminating powder.
STEP 4: Because we want the main focus to be the dark lip, keep the eyes light. Beyonce had a golden shadow. It was applied to the eye area beneath her lashes and above it all the way to her brows. Blend outwards.
STEP 5: Add light color to your cheeks. Opt for a bronzer that has a bit of shimmer on the apples of your cheeks, forehead and bridge of your nose.
STEP 6: Apply black mascara and curl your lashes.
STEP 7: The beauty look closer – the dark lip. Use a lip primer or prep with a lip balm. In order to prevent your lip color from feathering or bleeding, line lips with a clear lip liner. Apply the wine colored lipstick.
Perfect for a night on the townor dinner party, it is a low maintenance look that would look great paired with neutral colored outfits (nude dress anyone?).
