Spring brings with it the pretty pastel, flowery and fresh vibes! I love to do my makeup according to the weather and so I get all my pastels, pinks and peachy shades out to flaunt the springy colors, but I realised in all this, I completely neglect my favorite dark shades berry’s, plums and mostly black!
Black lipstick in spring can not only make you stand out from the rest and make a statement but also bring out the softness of your spring outfit by adding an interesting contrast. In this post I will show you three ways to play with your black lipstick and how to carry it off this spring! Excited? Read on….
Apply your black lipstick straight up and bold, I like to team it up with a bold eyeliner and a clean full coverage complexion. As you see this look goes well with a white tee and fun earrings, so it’s super easy to team it up with your spring clothes.
- Outline the lips using a Black Eye Pencil.
- Apply a liquid matte black lipstick.
I used Liquid Matte Black 28 Night Bird from Sephora.
Use your black lipstick in transparence by mixing it with your lip balm, for this look I kept my skin dewy using a light foundation and adding highlighter to highten the glowy effect. This look is easy to carry with light colored spring clothes.
- Mix your lip balm with a creamy black lipstick and a wine lipstick(optional).
- Apply this all over the lips.
- For added intensity tap the black lipstick gently all over the lips.
To go with this high shine lip effect, I chose a smudgy eye makeup and a full coverage foundation. I wore this look with a really casual jean jacket and my hair tied into a little side braid to give the whole look a bold yet casual feel.
- Apply a a black lipstick.
- Add a high shine gloss in a balck or dark wine shade.
- Use a black waterproof eye pencil to outline the lips and keep the lipstick locked in place.
I used Artist Acrylip 501 from Make Up For Ever.
