Besides red lips, the one thing I absolutely love is a dark, vampy lip. I feel like each winter season, there is a new term for this kind of lip: wine, oxblood, burgundy... The list could go on, but they can all be lumped into one category: the irresistible vampy lip. And pale girls: don't fret. I love the contrast of a super dark lip on pale skin. The key to pulling this look off is keeping the rest of your makeup absolutely simple, and let your lips shine through. Darker girls could even get away with an almost-black lipstick. My favorite color in the batch above is OCC's Black Dahlia lip tar. Completely versatile, it can be a lighter lip stain on pale girls, or an almost-black lip color on darker girls. It all boils down to one thing, though: confidence. Think you can handle a vampy lip?
