black & distressed

the season of dark lips is among us! although i'm missing the coral and bright pinks for summer and spring, i'm really diggin' the deep burgundy, plums, and berries. i was hesitant at first.. but realized, there is nothing to fear. i picked up a MAC lipstick in dark side which is described as a deep burgundy. dark lipsticks can be tricky and to keep it classy you really want to pick a color that is not too purple or black, unless goth-y is the look you are going for. MAC dark side is an amplified creme finish, which means it is: Ultra-creamy. Quietly shiny. Color-packed! Hi-res: hi-impact. = (insert thumbs up emoji). i only have two lipsticks from MAC and they are both amplified cremes. they wear very well. again, no lip liner here because i ain't got time for that! also check out the NARS audacious lipsticks that feature some beautiful dark shades for every skin tone.
