Our lipstick colours depend on how bold we feel. In the different shades of lipstick, red has always been a quintessential colour. But now black is turning out to be a new fashion trend. It's time to go darker and bolder with this hue.
Females who are bold and stylish can opt for this but the black lipstick is not for those with a faint heart. But no one can deny that this dark shade is irresistible. Nothing can spells rebellion like the black lip colour.
If you want to test the shade on you instead of investing in lipstick, then check out this easy tutorial for you.
Things you need:
• Lip Balm/Lip Primer
• Lip Brush
• Lip Pencil
• Deep Maroon Lipstick
• Black Eye Pencil
• Tissue Paper
Start by prepping your lips using a lip balm. Now give it some time to absorb. Then, use a lip primer that works as a base. In case you have pigmented lips, use a concealer or a foundation.
If you do not own a black lipstick, then go for a deeper maroon shade to start with.
Use a thin lip brush to line the lips and fill in the colour. For more correctness, opt for a lip pencil. Starting from the Cupid’s bow, make a ‘V’ shape on the upper lip, and draw a line parallel to it on the lower lip.
Using the same thin lip brush, fill in the colour and intensify it.
Now, to get the black colour on the lips, use eye/lip pencil in black, and colour the lips using a thin lip brush.
Do the same for the lower lip. Make sure you add enough colour to make it look dramatic.
While working with dark/bold lip colours, ensure that you fill in the colour evenly. The last step is to give your lips more definition. Opt for a concealer or a foundation in a shade closer to your skin tone, and outline the lips with a thin pointed brush.
The Final Look
Black is the colour of mysteries and secrets. It exudes power and control.
