When it comes to hitting the red carpet, these celebrities have opted to try out a new beauty look! Ditching nude or red lips which are far more frequently spotted at events, these celebs went for a vampy dark shade that stood out from the crowd. A dark lip is a great wintry look that is on trend now – add to a simple black dress for an evening out or for a sophisticated Halloween bash, or even try out a dark red for Christmas this year.

A deep chocolate brown shade looks stunning when contrasted with minimal eye makeup (stick to just a lick of mascara and perhaps a small line of eyeliner on your upper lid), while the truly daring might try and add a bold smoky eye with a black or plum lipstick for a gothic look that is really striking – see Lily Collins’ makeup look below for the perfect example.

Teamed with loose curls and a dewy complexion, a darker lip can work as an update on the classic Marilyn Monroe red lip – just see how Beyonce is rocking her redish brown shade flawlessly with basic eye makeup and an elegant dress to complete her red carpet look. To get a precise application, invest in a small lip brush to get a more accurate line around the edge of your lip.
