During the sizzling summer months, bright colours and natural looks are all the rage. But there is always an exception to the rule.
Fashion designers featured luscious dark lipstick in their autumn-winter 2011-2012 shows, and celebrities have been keeping the trend alive well into spring and summer.
Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, Lily Collins and Rihanna are just a few of the stars who have been seduced by the sense of mystery and attitude that dark lipstick gives them, incorporating shades of plum, wine and bordeaux into their red carpet looks.
