Fashion Magazine: How to Wear Dark Lipstick During the Day

During the day, I recommend pairing a dark lip with clean looking skin and minimal eye makeup. My go-to is a nude eyeshadow with a few coats of mascara. Keep the skin glowing with a very soft blush so that you don’t overwhelm the face with too much colour. If Falls dark pigmented shades aren’t for you then try a tint in a similar tone and lightly press it into the lips.
