So-dark-it’s-almost-black lipstick, but made to appear less Gothic and more glamorous: this was the standout element on which the gorgeous beauty look at Christian Dior fall 2016 was built upon. Bearing a noir-inspired sophistication, borrow the stunning inspiration for your next night out.
The secret to turning the intense purple lips into a thing of glamour? High-gloss, high shine.
To recreate the look at home: outline the lips with a matching lip liner, fill them in with black eyeliner, apply the lipstick (making sure to layer two coats and mattify in between with a tissue paper), then perfect the lips with a generous layer of gloss.
Complement with porcelain skin, and extreme lashes, think more punkish, less doll-like falsies.
