Dark Lips For Autumn: Makeup Tutorial.

We're over a week into September now which totally means it's acceptable to start bringing out the dark lips / winged eyeliner tutorials right?! I mean, only a thousand and one people have indirectly tweeted me (and everyone else) saying that it's not technically autumn until the 22nd, but you know what? I don't need that kind of negativity in my life. So here we are! I wanted to show you guys one of my favourite makeup looks for this time of year. 


I've had this lipstick for around about a year now and I have to say I love it. Initially I wasn't so sure that I liked the formula (I know, I think I'm the only person to ever say that) but after finding a better way to apply it and coupling it with a lip liner I realised it was pretty much the perfect autumnal lip. (I do have a full Beauty Review from back in the day so if you're interested, click here.) 

For me, the key with such a dark lipstick is to apply it using a flat lip brush. Personally I use a Real Techniques one as it's small enough to be able to create fine lines around the edges of your lips whilst simultaneously filling it the centres. The reason why I think this works to well is that for me, the formula of this product tends to stick to the drier areas of your lips - even if I've just exfoliated them - but for some reason this eliminates that problem. I also pop just a touch of lip balm underneath as well which does take away some of the matte texture but helps keep my lips from drying out. 

If you're intrigued by Glastonberry I'd say definitely go for it. It's more of a red wine colour as opposed to a 'true' berry but of course depending on your natural lip colour and how thickly you apply it you can switch up the colour to suit your personal preference. 


As I mentioned above using a lip liner with this lipstick literally saved me. Because of the square topped design I found it so hard to get a precise line - especially around my Cupid's Bow which is where the use of a lip liner really helps. For me I wanted to get a matching Charlotte Tilbury one so I headed back to the counter and asked one of the lovely girls in Selfridges, Birmingham. 

She recommended two shades, both of which were fairly similar however for my lips I decided to go with the shade Berry Naughty. It's a lovely plum colour that's maybe just a touch lighter than Glastonberry, so it works perfectly as a lip liner. 


Another firm favourite of mine. I think this is actually my second one of these eyeliners because they're just so damn good! If you're after a really precise pen that glides perfectly over your eyes without dragging or losing colour then this product is your girl. In fact if I could only recommend one product from this post it would 100% be this eyeliner as I'm obsessed with it! 

Let me know if you enjoyed this post and I will be back with another one soon!
