Makeup Challenge Day 6: Vampy Lips

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe we are this far into the challenge. I know it’s only two weeks, but these two weeks are flying by. Today’s look was supposed to be all about dark, glossy lips, but I cheated a little by going just dark. Hey, that’s a challenge enough, right? I’m going to show my hand here: this look is the one that pushed me the most out of my comfort zone and the one I like the most of this entire challenge.

Challenge Dark Lips 3

A few things usually happen when I wear dark lips: 1. I feel like Lorde and 2. I feel like I look very formal. Like I need an excuse to wear dark lips. i credit this to being very, very pale with dark hair, which can make dark lips look a little dramatic/goth. Vampy lips are usually a fall/winter look, but you know what I love about wearing them in the summer? I have a tan! With a tan, I feel a little less like edgy Lorde and a little more like sultry bad girl Rihanna. Also because dark lips are less dramatic with a tan, I feel like I can get away with rocking them to less formal occasions. For instance, I wore this look to my friend’s pizza and ice cream party (homemade pizza and ice cream that is– yum!)

Not so scary with dark lips

I feel no need to lie about where I got the inspiration for this look. Youtuber Kait Nichole did a similar look based on Chrissy Teigen’s makeup. I’ve been waiting a while to find a way to wear this look.

  1. I love how this looks on you! The slight eyeliner really makes it. I recognized that lipstick, haha. I normally wear dark reds in Fall/Winter, but I get bored sticking with one colour all the time, so even in Summer I’ll wear it every now and then. I’m not big on black or dark purple, but I do love rich, dark reds.

      • I completely agree. And on my lips at least, they are drying. They’re not really every day colors for me for that reason, but I’ll gladly by a few for the lip colors I’m only going to wear every few months or so

      • Oh really? That’s awful. =( I’ve actually been wearing Just Peachy as an everyday colour for awhile. I agree with that, though!

  2. Love the faces! You are totally ruining the moody / mysterious look with that last face, lol
    You definitely suit the vampy lips. If I did that, I’d get a LOT of comments since I am normally a tinted lip balm or just clear lip balm on my lips!
    Glossy AND vampy lips would involve WAY too much upkeep / touch-ups every 10 minutes!

    • Haha, I felt a little too serious with the straight faced selfies. I got some comments as I’m not normally a dark lip girl, but I really liked the overall effect

    • Thanks. Yes, it’s much more berry than it looks at first glance. I thought it was just a dark red, but it has a lot of purple undertones

  3. The first thing is I cant wear lipstick and i dont like it on myself but I loooove it on others. I’m a coloured lipbrush, lip gloss etc kinda girl.But back to the subject at hand, I’d totally wear a vamp/dark lippy on a balmy summer’s night and think the look really suits you- makes your eyes POP!

    • Thanks so much! I totally get being more of a lip gloss/stain person. The more I get into lip products, the more I’m drifting away from traditional lipstick
