How to Wear Dark Lipstick in the Summer


It's funny how we can back ourselves into corners by following the conventions of "seasons". Brights and pastels for Spring and Summer, darks for Fall and Winter. But why not shake things up a bit? Don't limit your makeup choices just because you feel like it's out of season. Who cares!

I love hot pink lipsticks, corals, oranges and everything else bright in the summer, don't get me wrong, but I thought I'd challenge myself to bring out my "winter" lipstick shades for some face time this summer. I'm wearing one of my favourite deep vampy lipsticks, MUA from Vancouver beauty boutique AnaV Beauty. It goes on creamy and stays in place all night (no re-application needed!).

I love this as a date night look in the summer; pair the dark lip with some easy-to-style black pieces (and sexy little black crop top of course!), and you're good to go.
