You might be wondering what this blog is about! 😈
Hey beauties, welcome back to my blog! If you are a first-time visitor, I’m Niharika – A designer in love with makeup & skincare. I share reviews, recommendations, and my experience with the products I use.
As the blog name says, “DARK, HOT & SEXY,” we’ll be talking about the sexiest dark lipsticks / lip colors today!
I love wearing dark lip colors, be it with Indian wear or with any western outfit! And every time I wear these colors, I’m always stocked up with many questions >> How does it stay for so long? Your lipsticks don’t crack? Which shade? Which brand? Why your lip color doesn’t smudge?
If you are on my Instagram @nikohlife, you must have seen me mentioning investing in a good brand if you want a non-smudging dark lip color.
DARK, HOT & SEXY LIPS – Own it!
Things you would need
For a nice bold, non-smudging, non-cracking, non-drying, long-stay dark lip color, you will need the following
- Lip Scrub
- Translucent powder
- Lip Stain
- A good brand lip color
- The most crucial step is exfoliating the dead skin from your lips. We think that lips are soft, delicate and they need no scrubbing. Babe, you should exfoliate your lips every week. You can go with any lip scrub. I am using one from Sephora.
- Use a lip balm after removing/washing off the scrub.
- This is one of the foremost steps for perfect long-stay dark lips. Yes, you read it right! Lip stain is a must! Using a lip stain on the base will never let your natural lip color peep out, even if the lipstick cracks or you drink it with your coffee! I usually use a dark lip stain from MAC.
- Invest in a good brand for darker lipsticks.
- If your lipstick isn’t transfer-proof or smudge-proof, try this hack. After applying lipstick, blot with a tissue to remove excess color. After this, place a clean tissue on your lips, and dab translucent powder on your lips using a fluffy brush. The powder will remove excess moisture and leave the color intact.
