A look I have been loving and wearing all autumn and winter is the vampire-esque bold lip. I absolutely love how a coat of a dark lipstick can change your whole look in a matter of seconds!  The lipstick I am wearing here is one of my new favourites. I have loads of bright red lipsticks but had been looking for the perfect dark red lipstick for ages and eventually found it in Mac – ‘Diva’. Before I found this I had been using the Urban Decay glide on lip pencil in ‘Gash’ all over but felt this dried my lips out a bit. It is the perfect colour match for Diva though so I am now using this as a liner and pairing with Diva to give good definition and minimise smudging.

Diva is one Mac’s matte lipsticks so I must admit it does dry my lips out a little but I just give my lips a good exfoliation with some sugar lip scrub then slather on some lip balm a couple of hours before applying and voila, the lady is a vamp! 😉

Another thing I love about Diva is the staying power of it. I wore this last weekend when I went out for dinner (I was brave) and I only topped it up once after about 3 hours of wearing it! The colour also is very warm as there is a hint of brown to it so it doesn’t totally wash out your complexion.
If you are thinking of trying out a bold lip I would definitely recommend this one…come on over to the dark side, you won’t regret it!!

Have you been rocking a bold lip? What is your favourite?
