This week at the SAG Awards, a healthy display of dark lips reigned on the red carpet. And even with the present and popular rise of peach-toned makeup, dark and mysterious lips are truly showing everywhere.
Maisie William’s Dark Side
Actresses at the SAGs sporting the darker side were Rachel Woods, Maisie Williams, Janelle Monae and Kate Hudson to name a mere few. In the mix of strong lipstick shades were oxblood wines, deep berries and clarets, and dark plums.
Dark lipstick has had a noteworthy history and a long shelf life in makeup trends. And if you take a look at Kylie Jenner’s peach-toned makeup (below) that’s popular right now, the two latest looks of dark lips and peach tones could have even been used together! For several years dark lipstick has shown up every Winter and Fall and its popularity has spanned decades. Dark lipsticks were extremely popular way back in the 80s with a goth feel, but can actually go back as far as the Silent Film Era.
Peach-Makeup Trend on Kylie Jenner
This fab retro look, based on dark berry-tones like aubergine, red and even brown lipsticks were all the rage in the 1920s! And women can’t seem to get enough as there’s a show of dark lipstick, every year as summer ends. It didn’t come as much of a surprise this winter either, that the dark side of lipstick was on its way again, as it was previewed pretty much “everywear” on the runway during the 2016 Fashion Week.
No one can deny the mysterious appeal of deep luscious lips. Consider how a well-chosen dark shade can dress up casual wear as well as become the icing on the cake for elegant evenings. Its popularity lies in its starkness, its sophistication and its show of confidence.
