How to rock a Berry Lip.

Monday, 22 November 2010


The berry/plum lip is hot this season. It's synonymous with the Vampiresque theme we've been seeing around lately! It's got a mysterious feel yet bares alluring qualities. I love love love it!

I want to share with you one of the ways I like to wear it...with simply lined eyes, mascara and a plain cheek.

(Price : £12.50)

3. Black Maple, Bobbi Brown : This is a rich burgundy brown. Lovely on darker skin tones.

Another nice violet color that I recommend would be Va Va Violet by revlon. It is such a nice, vibrant color.

For MAC's Sinister lipstick when you get a chance pair it up with MAC lip liner in the color "Vino",they compliment each other very well. :]
