Beauty alert: Khloe Kardashian leads the super-dark, berry lips trend

Khloe Kardashian worked the perfect deep, berry red lipstick at the 22nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday night (2 March).

And it seems she wasn't the only A-lister to embrace her inner goth over the Oscars weekend, with both Margot Robbie and Kerry Washington also getting in on the trend...

Khloe rocked the perfect deep berry pout at Elton John's Oscars after party, 2 March 2014



The 86th Annual Academy Awards were literally overflowing with nude lips (and likewise, nude dresses!) from the likes of Angelina Jolie, Jessica Biel and Jennifer Lawrence to name but a few.

So, it was nice to see a few red carpet ladies going in the complete opposite direction with the deepest berry pout they could possibly find.

Khloe's lips were created by celebrity make-up artist Joyce Bonelli, who is the 29-year-old's go-to cosmetic queen.

She wore hers with lashings of lashes, dewy skin and a pillar-box red, velvet Marc Bouwer gown she said made her feel like Jessica Rabbit!

Meanwhile, over at the awards ceremony where host Ellen DeGeneres was causing a Twitter meltdown, both The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie and Django Unchained star Kerry Washington rocked similar plummy pouts.

Actress Margot had already caught our eye with her freshly coloured dark brown locks and her berry lips complemented the new look beautifully.

The biggest lesson we can learn from all three ladies is if you're going to wear a dark, strong lip, stick with minimal colour on your eyes – you'll note that none of them have gone crazy with the eyeshadow, keeping to mascara or fake lashes and maybe a smidge of eyeliner only.
