From the Paris runways to Kylie Cosmetics, dark lips are making their mark in the beauty and fashion industries. This ultra cool trent was huge at the Winter '16/'17 RTW runways with names such as Dior, Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood nailing the look and here at Hello Brows, we have to say...WE LOVE THEM! This look is so sexy/feminine/gothic chic/Rock chick. Whatever the look is that you are going for, we are going to go through a few key steps you should take to ensure they are looking Beauté à la française (beauty, french style) and not Ne pas être sorta de l'auberge (face a complicated problem)
1. Start from the inside. Drinking adequate amounts of water is vital for not only your lips but for your entire face. Not drinking enough can result in dry, cracked lips and bad breath (no one wants to have or be near either of these things) So, key take out? Drink at least 7 glasses of water a day! Your face will thank you for it.
2. Cover the lips with a light foundation or concealer, reason for this? To allow the colour to pop! This is a tip used by top make up artists.
3. Line the lips, this will help to stop the colour from bleeding.
4. Focusing on the lip being the centre on attention and keeping eye makeup to a minimum will give you the "fresh off the seat of front row at fashion week" look.

Whether you have tried it in the salon, at home or not at all, I am going to share my eyebrow tinting experience with you.
I consider myself as a DIY brow tinting professional. I have not had professional training just plain ol' "on the job experience". I have been dying my eyebrows at home for around 15 years. To explain a little about me, I am a natural blonde who has been dying her hair the darkest shade of brown for 15 years, I am sure you are thinking, wow that sounds like a whole lot of maintenance? Let me tell you,
Agh the 90's. When they were finally over we were happy but once they were more of a memory than just last year, we began to realise how cool they actually were. We had Nirvana, Lil Kim, The Lion King, Space Jam, The Spice Girls, Saved By The Bell, Windows 95 and happy pants. Let's be honest....it was a great era to be apart of.....mostly.
