Pick the perfect dark lipstick
…to match your skin tone
Plum-based hues and lush ruby shades look great on most skin tones. Try a creamy high-shine formula to amp up the glamour.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick in Black Cherry, Rs 1,099
A brown burgundy brings out dark eyes and is super flattering on dusky skin tones. Try a matte formula if you want something subdued but sophisticated.
ColorBar Deep Matte Lip Crème in Deep Rust, Rs 675
A blue-based burgundy isn’t too light or too dark and it works really well with lighter skin-tones. Try a creamy formula and top it with clear gloss for a little shine.
StudioWest Pure Passion Long Lasting Lipstick in Passionate Plum, Rs 425

You don’t need Sonam Kapoor’s confidence to pull off dark lipstick – just the right lip shade and some prep work. If you’re scared to dive headfirst into the grungy trend, start with a berry lip stain or simply mix it with your favourite lip colour to pare down the deep hue. And don’t forget to do a teeth check before you step out.
