VAMP UP YOUR LIP LOOK WITH DIVA LIPSTICK

November 14, 2023 by Cat Quinn
Vampy makeup is back, along with the juicy burgundy lipstick that has defined the look since the 1920s. Inspired by trends from the turn of the century, we’ve seen dark berry pouts everywhere ­– from the red carpet to the runway. The colour on everyone’s lips? M·A·Cximal Silky Matte Lipstick in Diva.

"Diva" – which translates to "goddess" in Latin – was first used to describe opera singers in the early 19th century. Despite negative connotations with the word through history, it continues to embody trailblazing entertainers today. If you want to borrow some of that fearless energy, look no further than the reddish-burgundy dark lipstick colour that bears its name. “Matte Lipstick in Diva is one of the original M·A·C lip shades that’s stood the test of time and gets constantly reinvented,” says Terry Barber, M·A·C Creative Director of Makeup Artistry. “Style Diva with smoky eyes for film-noir glam or with a stripped-back face for minimal 90s makeup .”.

To get the look, start by lining your lips with a deep wine Lip Pencil, such as Plum, then swipe the lipstick overtop fresh from the tube. Don’t be shy about building up the intensity – we didn’t name this shade Diva without reason.
