How to do a dark lip and still look pretty!

       Hello dollies.
       From deep plum to rich red, dark lip looks are super-hot this holiday season and can be surprisingly easy to pull off.
      In spite of many women's fear of dark lips , I am gonna tell you that everyone cn pull off a dark lip , ifthey know how to correctly choose the colours that complement their skin tone.

The shade of lipstick that you choose can make or break your look!

If you have a cool complexion ,  choose dark colors with blue and purple undertones, like berry or bordeaux.

Some examples would be:

Lancome L'Absolute Rouge in Berry Noir

Urban Decay Lipstick in Gash

Revlon ColorStay Soft&Smooth Lipcolor in Divine Port Wine

For a warm skin tone, look for coral and gold undertones, like brick and golden red.

Lancome Color Fever Lipstick in Brickhouse

Vincent Longo Velvet Rich Rejuvenating Lipstick in Carnelian Whisper

CoverGirl TruShine LipColor in Fire Shine  

Dark Lipstick Do's

Unless you're going for a dramatic statement, keep your dark lip the distinguishing feature of your look and downplay the rest. To define but not overpower your makeup:

-Use a generous amount of mascara to frame the eyes. If you're using shadow, go for lighter shades or a light, iridescent shimmer that won’t conflict with your lips.

-To contour cheeks, sweep a subtle pink blush across your apples for just a pop of color.

-Line your lips with a lip liner in a similar shade before and after applying your lipstick, the texture of the pencil will hold your color in place.

Dark Lipstick Don'ts

To avoid Twilight lips (i.e. looking washed out, too dark lips, or just looking plain silly like a dead vampire) :

-Don't apply dark lipstick on chapped or dehydrated lips. The color will catch on the areas that are dry and cracked and set in, looking rather unsightly. If you suffer from dry lips use a lip conditioner before applying.

-Don't pick a shiny finish. Anything from matte to cream, or even a slight gloss is fine, but stay away from excessively shiny finishes. High shine glosses tend to migrate more on your lips as the day goes on. If you have thin lips however, you should incorporate a subtle gloss finish over top of your color, since matte shades make lips look smaller.

Ten hot fall trends

                        Ok beauties , this is a post about this fall s trends in makeup ,hair and nails.I received this e-mail today from this beauty/fashion sites , with ten hot trends for this season and i though of shring it with you .So here we go:

1.Vamp Nails
Manicurist Pattie Yankee for Dashing Diva said, "Dark nails are a statement.Vampy shades act as an especially bold command to take notice.

2.No-makeup makeup
With all the cosmetic tricks available to create a variety of believable illusions, it's no wonder that men often say they prefer a woman without makeup, as almost a truth serum of sorts. Yet in spite of this common declaration, studies show that men still pick women wearing makeup as more desirable when given the choice. The no-makeup makeup look cleverly delves deeper, convincing the opposite sex that facial attributes are naturally that beautiful--even though they've certainly had a little "help."

They're in!AGAIN!Braids evolved as a practical style to preserve hair health and thickness by protecting it against environmental assault, allowing you to grow strands longer and healthier than you otherwise would.

4.Red eyeshadow
Intense, red eye makeup isn't for everyone, but we applaud anyone who has the confidence to give it a try--being sure of yourself is the most attractive feature you can ever have.

5.Red Lips
They're in!Of course.From light red , to dark , burgundy to browny red , you shoudl try and wear them all , and see which ones are the ebst for you!hot!hot!hot!

6.Center Parts for the hair
At play here is the human preoccupation with facial symmetry, which is prominently enhanced when you center part your hair.

7.Color-Tipped Nails
Designers used reverse French manicure-like tips of color to lend a sense of luxury to shows. Backstage at Jason Wu where the gilded architecture of Versailles inspired the collection, cherry chocolate nails were carefully dipped in baroque gold. Historically, adorned hands have been a sign of higher-class value, soundlessly inferring that you can afford both the leisure of time and cost to luxuriate over your nails while others tend to the dirty work.

8,Volume , volume , volume!
"I love big hair because it communicates a sense of confidence and swagger," said Johnny Weir at Adrienne Landau. So why all the to-do about volume? Thick locks full of body are a sign of health, as nutrients like biotin are good for a crowning glory of hair.

9.Black Eyeliener
Yep!If youy eyes can take it , then give it to them!After all, it's the amount of contrast we subconsciously detect in a face that rapidly allows us to discern whether we're viewing a feminine (high contrast) or masculine (low contrast) face. By blending jet black kohl next to the whites of the eyes, you're dramatically upping both the contrast and the accompanying sense of femininity.

If you already tried them , what are your favourites from this trends and if not , which ones you plan to try?
