With the leaves changing color and weather becoming more and more eerie, dark lips are back in a big way, from Goth black hues on the runways to the gorgeous plums on Hollywood’s most famous pouts. This style can be rather dramatic and intimidating, but read our lips: This look can work off the red carpet! Just keep these few do’s and don’ts in mind when you go to the dark side.
DON’T go totally Goth
While this look works great when worn by models on the runway off the catwalk, the severe-looking style says vampire, not vampy.
DO let your lips do all the talking
However, you need to get a wearable version of the runway dark lipstick. Pulling your hair back into a ponytail, keeping your cheeks and eyes bare and let your look revolve around a dramatic, deep lipstick.
