Chanel Fall 2012 Dark Lip Combo...












The much anticipated Chanel Fall 2012 Make-up Collection is finally available in the stores, from today! I chose Chanel Rouge Allure, Lip Gloss in 68 Troublant and Chanel Le Crayon Levres, Precision Lip Definer in 54 Amarante to create this beautiful dark plummy autumn lip... Intense, almost gothy, dark lips are one of the beauty trends this autumn... There are two version to choose from, the velvet/matte finish and the glossy finish... 

To start off with, make sure your lips are moisturised but not greasy as the products will slide off... You definitely don't want to have crackled dry lips on any occasion but especially when you are doing a bright or a dark lip... Then begin shaping your lips, line them first then fill in the entire lip with the lipliner, use the brush to really work in the product, that will stain your lips and keep the dark lip looking good for longer... To create dimension after you have filled in the lip just line the edge again to intensify it...

You can leave it at that for a chic velvet finish, but you may find your lips feeling slightly dry after a while... If you need to wear a dark lip for a good few hours you can go for the glossy version and apply the lipgloss over it... It will keep your lips moisturised but it won't be smudge proof... With bright or dark lips you always need to touch up and keep an eye on... But such is life... Full of lipstick and drama...
