Saoirse Ronan’s Dark Lipstick Is Not for the Faint-Hearted

Dark lips are back and the vampy shade makes as big an impact as the traditional red. Though not for the faint-hearted, the ultra-deep hues can give an otherwise tame look a cool-girl vibe. Need an visual? Check out Saoirse Ronan’s dark lipstick. The actress’s makeup is normally light, fresh and totally ethereal with pretty pinks and lip stains. That all changed when Ronan ditched her timid shade for a bold inky purple lip (try these from asos.com). The super-dark colour gave her girl-next-door styling an instant edge.

To pull off a deep shade like Ronan, we recommend a three-step routine. Exfoliate with a gentle scrub, slather on some lip balm and, before you reach for your lippy, use a lip liner. Now the party can begin. Go as bold or sheer as you want but flatter, matte lipsticks work better than those with a shiny finish. And remember to road test the hue against your skin — the paler the complexion, the closer to goth. Like Ronan, finish with neutral eyes to keep all the focus on your ‘live dangerously’ lips.
