Why You Need To Try A Dark Lip For Winter

Winter is quickly approaching, which means you might be switching up your usual makeup routine. While it can be hard to motivate yourself to go full-on glam during the months where the days are short and the air is dry, it is possible to liven up your look with just a couple of swipes. Dark lipstick is an easy, bold look that's perfect for winter and has become popular both on the runway and on celebrities.

Dark lips continue to be a mainstay on the runway, showing up in shows like Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry. If you're not interested in going super dark with your lipstick, try out a deep red shade like Red Revenge from COVERGIRL's Outlast Longwear Lipstick.

If you're feeling daring and want to try out a purple or plum shade like Katy Perry, try out Plum Fury, or Magnetic Mauve for a more subtle hue. Of course, to make application a little bit easier, line and fill in your lips first with a similar shade, like the Liperfection liner in Beloved.
