THE VAMPY LIP

One of the hottest beauty trends right now is the Vampy Lip and why wouldn’t it be? Smack some dark colour onto your lips and BAM, it becomes one big statement to everyone who walks past you – I’m one bad ass bitch so do not fuck with me.

Perfect for the cold weather paired with a dark and feminine outfit, or the Vampy lip would look stunning on you in the Summer contrasted with bright colored pieces on that hot bod of yours. So go right ahead and dig through your lipstick collection and grab yourself a dark color that catches your eye.

You’re also going to need your go-to lip liner to get the perfect Vampy Lip and to make that shiz stay in place all day and night! It’s up to you whether or not you want to add a bit of gloss to your pout, so grab your fave gloss and smack on some shine when we’re all done.

Line your lips with a sharpened liner. I’m using Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lip Contouring Pencil in ‘Cherry Kiss’. It’s important that your liner is sharpened for that extra precision and the trick is to draw right on the edge of the lip line. Then fill the rest of your lips with your lip liner.

Take your choice of lipstick and glide that onto your top and bottom lip. I’m wearing Topshop’s Lipstick in ‘Depth’.

Blot your lips by pressing a piece of tissue between your top and bottom lip. This stops any lipstick getting onto your teeth.

And that’s it! It only takes a few minutes to achieve Vampy Lips and stays on all day. Try it out and flaunt it – don’t let anyone fuck with you today or any other day.

GET CREATIVE: Henna Ideas

Dreaming of a new tattoo design? Looking for something trendy, creative and temporary? What about Henna? Using Henna allows you to mark your body however you please and you can use that creative flair that we all have! It’s super inexpensive, so go right ahead and get yourself some and get designing.

When you’ve got your Henna paste in your hot little hands, start off with some practice runs on a piece of paper. The purpose of this is to get yourself used to holding the applicator (cones are usually best) and basically getting into the flow of drawing with paste. When you’re ready to draw on your skin, draw on your design with an eye/lip liner first if you want to be extra cautious. You can then trace the liner with your Henna paste for a perfect outcome!
