Dark purple lips are back this season. The sexy siren Scarlett Johnson graced many magazines pages this fall in a Dolce & Gabbana ad, models strutted down the catwalk, and every makeup line is coming out with their fabulous shade of vampy purple. The traditional bride may think this look is just way too daring, but if you are a bride that wants to make a statement this shade is definitely for you.
The vampy lipcolor can be worn either in a matte shade or glammed up with a high glossy pout. But remember when it’s time to kiss the groom…he will have to settle for Hollywood air kisses (smooches).
The best way for any bride to pull off this look is simple:
Keep the skin sheer
Mix a liquid luminizer in your liquid foundation
Line your eyes with a crème or liquid eyeliner
Give yourself a strong contoured cheek
Of course you can’t forget the eyelashes to completely this look
