Since being part of MAC Cosmetics last April, the model turned public relations assistant has had to deal with wearing black all day, every day. With a basic know-how on makeup at that time, Sam Lewis has then gone from safe to experimental in terms of her beauty look. What's her cheat to looking chic almost instantly? The bold dark lip. Below, she shares three fail-proof tips to sporting deep, dark hues with ease.
1. PAIR WITH NEUTRAL EYE MAKEUP
"Smoky eyes plus black lipstick? That's just too much."
2. AVOID CROOKED LINES

3. WEAR IT WITH ATTITUDE
"It's basically the same thing as trying to pull off the perfect red lip."
