90’s Revival – The Dark Lipstick is Back!

One of the most notable beauty trends of the 90’s has reemerged from the depths of My So Called Life television screens. The dark lipstick colors have made it back in a big, beautiful and sexy way, minus an overflowing flannel and Doc Martens, thankfully. How can we forget Rayanne’s brick red lip and Angela’s melancholy maroon.

Today, we are seeing it everywhere from the runway to the red carpet. New You caught up with Grey’s Anatomy star Camilla Luddington over the weekend, who flaunted a stunning dark glossy lip. We asked her, “How do you recommend achieving a good dark lip?”

“I’m actually frozen right now on the red carpet in fear of getting it on my teeth,” she giggled, “there is no secret, I live in constant fear.” We love Camilla’s clever lip tip but here are a few things to consider that New You has dug up.

Kylie Jenner has been dropping sneak peaks of her new Kylie LipKit coming out soon. One Instagram shot reveals the dark lip will be part of her line as she sports a gorgeous chocolate brown. Leave it to a Kardashian to be right on trend and offer a fab product to follow. We can’t wait wait for the LipKit to launch.

In order to get on this gorgeous grunge revival, take into consideration two things: First, dark lips look better matte, gloss works too but don’t over do. Second, try more that a few colors; it’s going to be trail and error until you can match your skin tone to your fave 90’s style lip shade.
