Madisin Bradley Vampy Lip

I came across this image of model Madisin Bradley in my Instagram feed (from Renny Vasquez), and I just had to bless this post with her magnificence! She is wearing Black Opal Beauty FoundationAnastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Flutter Lashes (style unknown). You can get her exact vamp stamp with MAC Lip Liner in Nightmoth and NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. #shedidthat

Those with darker skin should look out for lipsticks with a chocolate base which is richer and more warming than bluer-based lipsticks.

Let’s face it: the vampy lip is one of fall’s finest beauty trends for brown skin. Now I want to help you start your sultry stash this season!

It is my new obsession after I missed out on Rihanna’s overhyped Talk That Talk. Celebrity makeup artist Theresa Francine recommended picking up Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Port (discontinued) if you missed out on Talk That Talk.

With lips as dark as night, many a beauty enthusiast said they felt duped (pun intended) by the limited edition lipstick. And with that, a stream of new additions flooded Google Images, each identifying comparable, suitable contenders from different brands in various finishes and price points. As for me, I quickly got over my angst and stalked many celebrity makeup artists’ Instagram feeds. And now I’m happy to share my results with you!
