THE LADY IS A VAMP
three ways to pull off the dark and stormy lip trend.
The Baby Vamp Lip: Use Clinique's Black Honey, a sheer bloody violet shade, to get the look during the day. ($15 in either lipstick or lip gloss form.)
The Vamp Lip: Use NARS' Cosmetics Volga matte lipstick, a brick black shade, paying careful attention to the bow and corners of your mouth. This was the same shade used on Marc Jacobs' Spring 2011 runway - do it for daytime with a bare face, or at night with liquid liner. ($25 in pure matte pigment form.
The Vamp Extreme Lip: Use ck one color cosmetics' new Soft Defining Lip Pencil in "Gossip" to outline your lip, accentuating the corners and bow with sharp, almost angular lines. Fill in with the pencil, and top with ck one lipstick in "Mad" and ck one lip gloss in "Smooch." This is the exact makeup worn by Camilla Belle at the Met Ball. $13 (pencil), $15 (lip gloss), and $16 (lipstick) available online now.
