THE SOFT VAMPY LIP

Monday, September 22, 2014



Have you ever wanted to sport a "vampy" fall lip without the abrupt harsh outline?
You just might want to make a statement, that will have a more light impression on this changing season!

I want to show you my favorite way to wear a darker lip color, that is soft enough even to wear to the grocery store...without scaring the children.


  • All you have to do to get started, is pick a lip pencil that is one to two shades lighter than the lipstick you are wanting to wear. In this tutorial I am using MAC's Plum Lip Pencil.
Plum is the perfect partner in crime for most dark and shady lipsticks.  So you better go get it because the weather is changing fast!

  • The second step is, line your lips and fill them in all the way until you hit the center of the lips. Taking your vampy lipstick, you will want to ONLY fill in the center of the lips with that shade.
  • Then go back in with your lip pencil, and fill your lips the rest of the way in.
  • Finally, you are left with a softly lined lip, with enough depth for dinner, but a soft enough finish for brunch!

I know exactly what you mean. lol Also, your hair looks absolutely beautiful would love to see a tutorial on how you get these soft waves. Annnnd.... One more question... Where is your sweater from? I looked in the down bar but just saw a link for the scarf. Sorry if you put it somewhere and I missed it. =/

  2. This is an awesome tip, and it looks gorgeous! I have been DYING to wear a darker lip, but I'm not sure if I can pull it off. I only wear mascara, and I've heard that statement lips shouldn't be warn alone. I'm kind of bummed, but I'm tempted to try it out!
