Last week I put up a post showing you a trend that’s quite hot at the mo! THE BLACK LIPSTICK trend!
Now so many of you have requested that I show you my take on the black lipstick. So I thought I’d brave it out and have a go🙈 I do like strong lipstick colours but a black lipstick is just on another level lol. Also being an skintone of NC42 I’m not sure which way this was going to go! But I did do a little run so let me show you how it went.
I have quite a few deep burgundy bases but the darkest one I’ve got is my Sleek one in the ‘Vamp’ Before I applied the lipstick I made sure my lips had no flaky bits and were prepped with my fave Maybelline baby lips, as this lippie is quite matte so it will show every little bitty, lip through the lipstick! I then filled my pout in with (without lining my lips first! And trust me that is a first for me😂) Apply a good, even layer and slightly press your lips together.
Grabbing my Makeup Revolution lip lacquer in the shade ‘Velvet Vamp’ (do you see a vamp theme progressing? Lol) I proceeded into applying to just the corners of my mouth. Now this lip lacquer goes on super glossy but it then dries super matte! (Amazing stuff with great pigment) After the lip lacquer had dried, I used a third lipstick🙈
My third lippie had to be Mac ‘Darkside’! It is in a amplified finish which means the colour is a true deep pigment! and it’s gorge. I applied ‘Darkside’ all over my lips, with another final press.
Lastly I grabbed my Barry M lip liner in the shade ‘7’ and lined my lips, not really going over as I have Fullish lips anyways and voila my version of the Black Lipstick trend is complete😍
Now I know this seems like a lot of steps but to be honest I was a little apprehensive to do a true black and it’s not a lipstick I own🙈 So going by the trend I could see that a deep burgundy would work quite well, hence all the steps used to create this look. What do you think guys? I hope you like it! I personally believe that the shades I used would look great on lighter skin tones too! Have a go and let me know how you get on😀
