Dark Lips

Dark Lips and Light Lipsticks

pink lipsThe no makeup look is really pretty, but people with dark lips struggle with achieving this look because the required nude lipstick or light pink lipstick does not blend well with the natural lip color.
If you have dark lips and want to use lighter lipstick shades what you need to do is to neutralize your lip color before applying lipstick. Neutralizing your lip color is easy. All you need to do is apply a thin layer of foundation or concealer over your lips evenly. Once your lips look pale, you can then use any lipstick shade your like and top it off with clear lip gloss.
The only problem with neutralizing your lip color this way is that foundation and concealers tend to dry out your lips. So make sure you always take care of your lips and moisturize it with lip balm before putting on the foundation and after removing your lipstick. You can also substitute a nude colored lip liner for the foundation to prevent this problem.
