fashion friday: vampy lips

makeup trend

this week brought the annual met ball and the celebs were out in full force showcasing their bold looks.

i noticed a fashion trend happening in makeup: the vampy lip! an odd choice for spring one might think, but it could be a sophisticated look when paired with clean, luminous skin, a dash of bronzer, and lots of lashes. avoid heavy eyeshadow and overdoing the contouring with these dark lips to keep from looking dated or too goth. what do you think – would you ever wear these dramatic lips?

p.s: these eye brightening tricks i posted this week would look great with these dark and moody lips!

  1. i also noticed this pattern when looking at pics from the night. not my cup of tea personally. i think i’m too pale to pull this off without looking like wednesday addams…

  2. Love the vampy lip! It’s one of my go-to looks! I love the way it makes your lips pop and just really adds a touch of darkness to all outfits. I think they are sexy lips — just like bright red!
