Dark Lips are incredibly irresistible, every girl must give this one a go. The trick is finding the right shade for your skin tone; fair skin tones should try a color with a blue tint- like a cool plum, and golden undertone girls should try warmer shades. Don’t forget a flesh colored or wax lip liner- these are essential for the perfect long lasting pout!

Try (good for any skin tone):

Makeup For Ever, Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Pencil, $17. Available in 18 shades, this lip pencil contains vitamin E and jojoba wax for a smooth, glide on application. For the perfect dark lip this season, use shade 13C (dark eggplant purple) to line a fill the lips.Available at all Sephora stores.
