Beauty trends: why dark lips are an irresistible detail

Who among us doesn’t love to talk about beauty trends, especially when the focus is on make-up?

En effet, make-up is increasingly popular with both women and men, and everyone – drawing inspiration from the fashion system and the various influencers in the industry – is trying to keep up with the times. During the latest fashion house collections, especially the latest Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter, it was not difficult to perceive how dark lips will play a key role in the coming months. Dark lips are an increasingly popular and irresistible make-up trend. Mainly, the secret is to focus on using so dramatic colour shades, such as black, dark brown, deep purple and burgundy.

The key is to choose the right lipstick – and a gloss, if desired. It is essential to choose a highly pigmented and long-lasting lipstick. We also recommend using a lip pencil in the same colour to define the lip contour and prevent the colour from smudging.


From Annakiki to Mugler, via Etro and Rodarte, this dark lips trend seems to be perfect for autumn and winter, but can also be adopted in spring and summer. As you will notice, you can opt for a matt or glossy look depending on your preference. For a striking beauty look, it is important to keep the rest of the face almost nude, clean and bright, without excess blush or too much eye shadow.

Of all the versions of dark lipsticks, we find the very shiny one very appealing, a goth-chic effect made even more unique by an intense application of transparent gloss.

How to create dark lips make-up?

To achieve a wow effect, simply moisturise the lips with a lip balm or lip balm to soften them, apply the dark lipstick and use a lip pencil of the same colour to define the lip contour. If a blended effect is desired, a sponge can be used to gently blend the lipstick colour towards the outside of the lips. Next, apply transparent gloss to the centre of the lips to create light and volume. Finally, it is important to remove any smudges or excess colour. That’s it, you’re done.
