Dark berry lips are officially back

Burgundy, red brick, plum, grape and violet are all go...

Why is it that whenever it’s cold, we’re immediately drawn to the romantic side of beauty? Popping bright colours no longer catch our eye and instead, we’re immediately enticed with deep berry hues and red brick shades of lipstick. Perhaps it has to do with the influence of the Autumn Winter catwalk or maybe it comes down to the fact that outside is dark and so we want to imitate our surroundings.

Either way, one thing is for sure: this romantic look rules the red carpet around this time of year.

Here’s to embracing your dark side.
