MY FAVOURITE AUTUMN/WINTER LIPSTICKS

Autumn or Winter has never been my favourite seasons. I am a July baby so I usually preferred the summer monsoon season that we have in my beloved city Calcutta. But after starting to live in the UK, I saw the beautiful side of Autumn. It’s the transition season. Not quite hot nor truly cold. A/W might be dry, cold and unpredictable, but I do enjoy the make-up looks you can create during this time of the season. In which the dark lips are my favourite. It is a bold and fun way to jazz your look. It’s the season of the vampy-goth-look.

Here are my top favourite A/W lips for you lovelies:

Hopefully I have inspired some of you to try dark lips this season. Remember everything takes its sweet time. Don’t rush and put a dark colour intensely cause that would scare you off. Instead start by dabbing some of the dark lipstick onto your lips, so it isn’t too intense and slowly build on it. And there’s nothing to feel awkward about. Just take baby steps towards it and trust me, you can definately rock Dark Lip like a Parisian.  Good luck. XOXO
