Good news to those who love vampy lips. Scarlet and dark red are in for spring/summer season since “decadent” shades have been all over the runway. Celebs have been spotted rocking dark red lips at MET Ball and other glam events. The eyes can still enjoy some color too though. It’s not all strict as before. Blue eyeliner or brown shadows as well as mascara go well with rich shade of red or burgundy.

For a quick application go with burgundy balm. It is easy to use and it provides low-maintenance look of dark red lips. You can also put a layer of stain before applying the balm.

Many celebs go with scarlet or dark red lips this season. For a more durable look use lip liner to keep the lipstick intact and prevent bleeding and apply powder as a finishing touch for a durable and deeper shade.

If you want to go for a graphic look first apply concealer to your lips to cover your natural lip lines. Now you can draw the lines you want but keep them natural-looking to prevent clownish look. Use lip liner to draw the lip lines and fill in the lips with it. Then put a layer of lipstick of flattering shade of red, dab a bit of powder and put on another layer.
