Wear Eye Makeup with Dark Vampy Lipstick

Edited by MsBarbs, Inukshuk, Eng

Hi, I am Kara and you are watching VisiHow. In this video, I will show you how to do the nude look to go with dark lips. You can also call this dark berry lips, drunk lips, or vamp lips. Normally, you would wear dark lips if you are going out, if you are having a prom, or going out to a party. In these cases you would wear a bright eye makeup, darker shadows, and applying black eyeliner. However if you were to use dark lipstick in the daytime I would recommend not overloading your eyes. That is what we are going to do today by just applying slightly nude eyeshadows to go with dark lips.

Steps

  1. 1
    I will be using an Avon palette
    .
    I already have my eyebrows done and my facial powder applied. Let's start by applying white highlights under the eyebrow. This will be a very easy and fast way to complete this type of look. If you do not want to look like a clown or if you don't want to look out of place when wearing dark lipstick then this is the makeup for you.

    Repeat the same process on the left eye
    .
    The shadows have a slight glow which is good for daylight. It gives you a slight glow if you are using BB cream it gives a very fresh look.

    The next step is to apply the brown shadow
    .
    This shadow will go along the wrinkle line. I'm not going to use any eyeliner, no pencils, no liquid eyeliners, nothing. I will just define my eyes with very thin nude palette.

    I should probably add some closer to my eyebrows
    .
    Not too close. This kind of eyeshadow is easy to apply if you are a newbie in the makeup world.

    Apply mascara
    .
    We are finished applying eyeshadow, and since we are not applying any eyeliner we do want to apply our favorite mascara. This will help to define our eyes. Let's create some eyelashes now. I am using Avon's super shock mascara. It's very important to have well-defined eyebrows, but not too dark and not too heavy. If you are uncertain about how to do this you can watch my other video define your eyebrows with dipbrow pomade which uses Anastasia's dipbrow pomade. This mascara brush works really well. It might take a while to apply, but it slowly creates the effect that I am looking for. If you have a set of fake lashes you can apply those as well. I also have a tutorial on how to apply fake lashes, which you can view by searching for how to apply fake lashes using tweezers, or you could click this link.

    Apply mascara to the bottom lashes
    .
    The bottom lashes are just as important as the top. Some people choose to ignore them, while some people choose to put too much mascara on the bottom lashes. I would recommend that you find a happy medium. We are done with the right eye.

  13. 13
    Apply mascara to the left eye's eyelashes
    .
    After I finished doing my eyelashes I am going to apply some concealer under my eyes to help hide the dark circles. I need to do that for two main reasons. The first reason is that wearing dark lipstick highlights all the dark spots on your face or any other imperfections like pimples. You can also watch me covering up my dark circles in another video, you are welcome to search for it, or you can click this link to view it.

    Apply mascara to the bottom lash line
    .

  15. 15
    Apply concealer to the under eye circles
    .
    My eyes are done. They look slightly naked but that is what we were going for. Just dot the concealer along the under eye area up to the end of your eyebrow. I am using the Flormar, it is a long-lasting concealer from a budget Italian brand. You don't always have to go for the expensive or brand name makeup to achieve the effect that you want. We are done with the eyes.

    Apply lipstick
    .
    Now we are going to move to all and last step which is to apply our dark lipstick. This lipstick is a slightly dark berry or wine color, which I love. Most women use this color for evening looks, but I choose to use it during the day as well. I see a messed up a little on the bottom lip, but we will fix it.

    You don't have to wait for evening or a special occasion to look good, to wear things that you like, or things that you think are not suitable for any other time
    .
    This look proves that. You can wear dark berry lips during the daytime as long as you keep your eyes light and not too loaded down with makeup. Thank you for watching VisiHow.
