HOW TO WEAR OUR BEST BLACK LIPSTICK SHADES
There’s nothing cooler than wearing black lipstick. Not black red lipstick, not purple—just pure, inky black matte lipstick. Black lips are bold and powerful! And the goth-inspired ‘black lip stain look’ is a HUGE trend right now. But dark color lipstick is not the easiest to get right. There are a few guidelines for nailing dark lipstick so let us help you navigate black lipstick makeup with our tips on wearing Maybelline black lipstick!
TIP #1: MAKE IT MATTE
Shiny lips with black lip gloss look great but are almost impossible to keep safe from smudging all over the place. Truth is, glossy black lipstick is just too high-maintenance a choice. Choose a matte black lipstick like Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in shade Thrill Seeker! This black liquid lipstick will give you a gorgeous, velvety black lipstick matte finish in just one swipe. And once you apply our black matte liquid lipstick and let it set in, this smudge-proof, transfer-proof black lipstick will not budge for up to 16 hours.
Another great drugstore black lipstick option by Maybelline New York is Color Sensational The Mattes, Matte Finish Lipstick in shade Pitch Black. This dark matte lipstick, infused with a caring oil, delivers crisp, vibrant dark lip color for smooth, supple lips.
TIP #2: CREATE A BASE
Sometimes lips are naturally moist in the center, making it harder for lipstick to adhere. Prepping lips by creating a base of foundation before applying black lipstick helps it stick to your lips.
TIP #3: USE LIP LINER
Line it up! Get precise, long-lasting black lipstick color by lining lips with either black eyeliner or neutral lip liner, which will help shape the lips even more and prevent dark lipstick colors from bleeding.
