The Dark Side
Typically a beauty taboo, it’s always one or the other and never both when it comes to dark eyes and lips. But this v-day, we’re ready to rebel and go against the rules. To ensure the look still makes sense on the face, start by choosing your lip colour first – it’s easier to pair one colour and build your look from there, than multiple colours on the lid and trying to find a match. A safe but still dangerous colour is a seductive deep mulberry or purple, its easy to pair undertones allow for a larger colour palette when creating your eye look. Max Mara even paired this shade of lip with a soft pale blue shadow and it still managed to look pretty darn genius.
