We saw this trend all over the runways (Givenchy and Gucci were our faves), on all the girls at the Met Gala and now on some of our favorite celebs from Camille Belle, Jessica Chastain, Kate Bosworth and Leighton Meester. Let go of those neutral fall colors and light washes and transform your look with a bold, new lip. A dark matte formula in plum or crimson makes a dramatic statement. To avoid going overkill, keep the rest of your makeup simple. All Blonde, Brunettes and Redheads can go for this vampy burgundy plum!
Our favorite goth lip product is Nars Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and Train Bleu. $25.
Tip: Try layering different shades of burgundy and plum to achieve your perfect vamp shade. We love mixing these two colors together.
How To: Apply this pencil all over smooth exfoliated lips. After you have filled in your lips, take your pinky finger and smudge the outer rim of your lips so that the line is diffused. This will give you a more natural lip stained look.
