HOW TO WEAR OUR BEST BLACK LIPSTICK SHADES

Sometimes, nothing will work but black lipstick. Not dark red, not purple. Pure, inky matte black lipstick. It’s just so powerful and cool! And goth-cool...it’s a HUGE look right now. But, it’s not the easiest to get right. There are a few guidelines for nailing it.

HOW TO WEAR OUR BEST BLACK LIPSTICK TIP #1: MAKE IT MATTE

Shiny black lips look cool, but are almost impossible to keep safe from smudging all over the place. It's just too high maintenance a choice. Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Thrill Seeker will give you that gorgeous, velvety matte finish and once you apply it and let it set in, it will not budge for hours. Another great option is Color Sensational The Mattes, Matte Finish Lipstick in Pitch Black.

HOW TO WEAR OUR BEST BLACK LIPSTICK TIP #2: CREATE A BASE

Prepping lips with a base of foundation before you apply lipstick really helps it stick to lips. Sometimes the lips are naturally moist in the center which can make it harder for lipstick to adhere.

HOW TO WEAR OUR BEST BLACK LIPSTICK TIP #3: USE LIP LINER

Line it up! Get precise by lining lips with either black eyeliner or neutral lip liner, which will help shape the lips even more and prevent color from bleeding.
