Lipstick Trends - Deep Plums and Mulberry

We've seen an onslaught of deep lips on red carpets and runways in recent times. From mulberry to deep plum to borderline browns.What we love about this new deep trend is that it can be worn by any skin tone.

For fair skin the deepest colors are obviously best worn at night. Those with deeper skin tones can easily wear these colors during the day.

These shades are bold statement lips so stick to the rules of keeping the rest of your make up neutral and soft so your lips can do the talking.

If you're a bit nervous about choosing such bold shades try the following:

Fair skin - opt for deep berry colors
Medium skin - burgundy and maroons are your friends
Dark skin - deep wines and browns will flatter

One of our favourite brands is Face of Australia. They have a few great shades to recreate this look, all under $10! Their products are great quality, provides good wear and best of all is not tested on animals.

We are particularly loving these shades - L to R: Lip Quench SPF 30+ Moisturising Lipstick in Pure Plum, Ruby Delight, Cocoa Cherry

L-R we have Mac cremesheen hang up  a beautiful deep berry for $36. At a bargain busting $4 we have NYX round lipstick in espresso a stunning brown red. Finally we have Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 41 L'Equise at $33 another cocoa red.
