A Makeup Artist Shows You How to Wear Dark Lipstick—Watch the Tutorial

Amy Lawrenson

There is nothing more striking than a dark lipstick. A vamp lip, as we’re calling it, is a total head-turner of a makeup look, but it can be a daunting trend to try. To break it down for you and to ensure that you’re wearing the lip (and not the other way around), we called on makeup artist and Instagram star Katie Jane Hughes.

Hughes shares so many glorious makeup ideas on her Instagram feed, but her real skill is that she can make even the most unlikely colour combination or out-there texture look completely and utterly effortless and wearable (if you don’t believe us, check out her feed, @katiejanehughes). Each month, Hughes will be creating an exclusive how-to video for Byrdie UK, and this month, she is tackling the classic vamp lip and revealing the secret to getting it right (hint: plenty of highlighter and some creamy concealer).

Check out the 60-second vamp lip tutorial, and then keep scrolling to shop the look.
