How to Wear a Deep, Dark Lip Color – Tips & Tricks

Makeup & Beauty Tips on How to Wear a Deep, Dark Lip Color

Share your best tips and tricks for how to apply, wear, and maintain dark lip color!  Feel free to share your experiences, how you mastered techniques, or what you struggle with.

My Tips

  1. Apply a lip pencil in either a color similar to yours, clear, or similar to the lipstick (the latter is my preference).
  2. Apply the dark lip color using a lip brush for maximum precision–you really want crisp, even lines when working with such a bold color.
  3. Apply concealer outside of the lips and blend towards the lips to clean up any stray lip color and help bring the lips forward.
