The Elie Saab gown is exquisite, the emerald earrings are divine, and you never looked lovelier – except for one thing. When you wear black, it wears you unless you “defeat” it with lipstick.
Black is the darkest color there is, so it can look forbidding. However, light one candle in a dark room, and it is no longer dark. A fuchsia or red lipstick does the same thing when you wear a black dress or suit. Lipstick also makes the eyes pop and sparkle. Try it, you’ll see.
