Ahh, lipstick. It’s my personal favorite makeup item, but I don’t think I’m biased in saying that the quest for even one lipstick that seems to work is what drives many women to seek out a personal color analysis. Being able to know that exact perfect shade, wear it until the tube is worn down to the nub, and buy another one can sound like livin’ the dream if you’ve been trying shade after shade, only to become quickly disenchanted with each new one after a brief honeymoon period.
You can, of course, go running straight to the mall with your palette in hand as soon as your analyst determines your season and simply compare your palette to each of the shades on display until you find some that harmonize. However, many women would love to skip that step and go straight to the exact tubes that are tried and true, analyst and client-tested favorites for their season so they can get something perfect for them and be on their way. I don’t blame you, so I’ve compiled some options for Dark Winter that I encourage you to try if this is your personal coloring. These shades, in addition to being harmonious options for the season, have tended to stay around through the endless discontinuation and launch cycle of the beauty industry, and are available at the time of this writing, though please be advised that any shade can be discontinued in time.
Quick Tip for Dark Seasons: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (Lipsticks)
One of the magical things about being a Dark season is that dark colors don’t look overly vampy. Makeup looks that seem fit for a Goth club might simply look healthy and stunning on this coloring. Try darker lip colors, and if they’re still too intense, blot or sheer them out using your finger, balm, or gloss. Avoid choosing colors that are too light to fit the color qualities of your season. Of course, some lighter lip colors harmonize here as well, so sticking only to those is always an option.
