Lovin' on Lanvin (oh and smudgy, wine-o lips)

There is no doubt when temps cool, makeup & hair colors get bolder/darker. Our current obsession is the dark lip. We are seeing bold color come back... but just a little cooler and edgier this season. Heck yes!

Our fave is most def the Lanvin lip. 

It is so edgy with no edges. The color is strongest and darkest in the center and gets softer as it reaches the lip line. The lip line is blurred and undefined. But so Not messy.

So, how do we rock that?

Take a firm brush like Get a Grip All Over Shadow brush. Find a sheer but deep lip stain. We love starting with a deep berry tone. Fill your lips in, avoiding the edges of the lip line but still follow your shape. 

Take a less sheer darker lipstick and dab it onto the center of your lips with the brush. 

Then as a final touch, take your makeup sponge (Soho has so many to choose! We love the purple daisy for this!) with a touch of foundation or concealer. Gently dab at the edges of your lips making the ridge slightly light and blending into the color.

Hey, look at you with your cat walk lips!

X’s & O’s and remember to “keep it neat, FREAK!”
