Blue blood aristocracy and their pale skin tones are eras behind us, and tanned is something that seems to never go out of style. On a warm summer night, light dress on a dark smooth skin is what every woman wants.
Lately, Hollywood stars have been contributing one more thing to this near perfect look, and that is bold and dark lipstick on their luscious lips. However, pulling out that Olsen sisters’ effortless look is really not that easy.
Here are 4 tips to help you achieve the luscious look of the hottest stars statement lips :
When getting ready to go out, with a movie star makeup tutorial playing on YouTube, make sure that your skin is absolutely perfect before you put an eye-catching lipstick on. It will draw a lot of attention to your beautiful face, but it can also work against you and emphasize every little imperfection on it. That is why before even buying such a statement lipstick you have to incorporate cleaning and cleansing of your face to the daily routine.
I trust that you do take good care of your skin, but if you have a more problematic one like I do, then you have to dedicate more of your time. Peeling is something you can do yourself at home, but as it is not always effective, you might want to try microdermabrasion to get rid of all the problems once and for all. Then you will be able to wear your new dark lipstick whenever and wherever you want knowing that you are attracting just the right kind of attention.
Now that your face is fresh, clean and smooth, you can start with that Cara Delavigne makeup tutorial. Girls, first and most important thing you have to remember is that if you do not pick the perfect powder tone, everything else you do is in vain.
Pick a primer one shade lighter than your skin to achieve the natural look we all strive for, and emphasize your cheekbones with a darker bronzer that matches your tan.
Now you have a perfect base for the eye-catching blueberry lipstick that will knock everybody off their feet. This shade is just perfect for girls who have that dark, kind of olive tan like Eva Longoria who takes everybody’s breath away, and rightfully deserves “Red Carpet Queen” title.
Luscious even when lighter
However, if you are more of a Liv Tyler palish, then you might go for a bit lighter colors, and make a statement with cyclamen. With medium light skin tone it is easy to find a perfect lipstick to elevate your look, and you can even aim at shades that have a blue undertone as they make your face brighter and your teeth lighter. What a perfect smile you will have!
Taste of cherry
But this season, more than ever, Bordeaux rules the runways, as it matches perfectly shaped eyebrows that we have lately put an emphasis on. However, in that combination, you should not overdo your makeup, because Spanish telenovela look is now far from attractive.
Less is more, so if you did your brows and cherried up your lips, then stay away from the eye shadow, especially during the day when you want to go as natural as possible. However, at night, dark eyeliner is more than welcome, as well as mascara to lift and lengthen your lashes and emphasize those beautiful eyes of yours.
Spend what is left of your summer with a good book somewhere on the beach and work on your tan. Just do not forget your suntan lotion, as you have to keep your skin constantly hydrated.
Spend the entire day if you can and rest for the evening and working days that are in front of you. Then all fresh and dark you will put on your perfect shade of statement lipstick and become a style icon that will make everybody’s head turn.
