Hello my Dolls! I am back with a look. I know I should start reviewing products again but I do not know where to begin as my stash is double the size now! lol. If you follow me on instagram, you must have seen me posting this look where I put this really dark shade of lippie. Honestly, I am very intimidated by shades like these because it makes me look all the more pale! I don't think I wear wear it out anytime soon but I LOVE the shade! Oh, even my favourite blogger friend Nivedita from MakeupandChitChat insisted that I do a MOTD post of it! ( Love you Nivi! <3 )
Here it is..........
I decided to put this one up as everything is more clear (lipstick is much darker in person). The one on my instagram with the top knot looks very ugly without edits :P. Not only that but also because my forehead was looking so huge and the makeup looked different. You know how us girls find a flaw in every pic! ;)
HOW TO GET THIS LOOK:
Keep it simple.
Matte. For some reason, I love matte foundations paired with dark lips! Others may have other preferences and that is completely fine. Make sure that all blemishes, scars, redness, darkness are all concealed. Dark lips can emphasise the smallest blemishes! Also, remember to moisturise your skin well in this dry weather. Use a hydrating primer if you wish!
Himalaya Intensive Face Moisturizing Lotion (dry/very dry skin)
Oriflame Face Perfecting Primer (dry areas)
Colorbar Perfect Match Primer (for pores and T-zone)
Ashley Concealer Palette (Thai brand. For colour correcting)

Loreal Infallible 24hr Powder Foundation
Even a makeup noob can do it. Use a primer, followed by a creamy grey eye shadow or a grey eye pencil as base. Apply it till your crease. Next, using a flat eye shadow brush, take a similar eye eye shadow and apply till crease and blend the edges. Don't forget to apply the eye shadow on your lower lashline too! Take a taupe eye shadow to define your crease and blend it with your grey eye shadow. To line my lashline, I went with a grey eye pencil. The goal is to make your lips the focus so be soft with the eye makeup! Now, if you have horrible dark circles like me, the grey eyeshadow might just make it look a bit tired. Hence, I recommend that you highlight your inner corners with a shimmer white eyeshadow. Add a bit on 1/3rd of your lower lashline. Next, instead of using white eye pencil on my lower waterline, I chose a silver. I just wanted that extra pop and it popped the eyes beautifully! Finish off with a very very natural pair of falsies. If you are one of the lucky ones with super long lashes (I envy you), just apply a few coats of mascara!

FEW TIPS (my personal preferences):
ALWAYS opt for neutals when wearing shades like this. You cannot do rainbow eyes and pair this lippie. Just saying! Cause I saw one girl in broad day light with blood red eye shadow till her brows, paired with red blush and red lipstick! Oh, she was eating paani puri and everyone was a bit intimidated! :P
Go for a nude blush. This goes unsaid.
Idk why, I LOVE contouring and highlighting when I wear dark lips. Not a must but definitely a try!
Use a lip liner. Dark colors on unlined lips do not look prim and proper.
Skin needs to be as flawless as baby bum.
