Black liptstick

Hesitant about trying a bold red lip? Well, things are about to get a whole lot darker.


If the runways at Paris Fashion Week are any indication, lip hues are going seriously gothic this fall. We're seeing the resurgence of moody, romantic, ultra-dark black lipstick.
The look first emerged at the Giles show in London and graced the catwalks once again at Emanuel Ungaro in Paris just yesterday. Intrigued? Here's the scoop on how to craft the onyx look at home.
Begin by lining your lips with a M.A.C. Lip Pencil in Currant, then fill them in with M.A.C. Lipmix in Burgundy. The resulting color is almost black with just a hint of red. While it's dark and daring, there's something about the look that's surprisingly young and fresh, too.
We know, it seems a bit extreme, but hear us out. The deep, dark lip look was a major must-have look in the '90s. Everyone from Christina Ricci to Drew Barrymore was all about the edgy style back in the day and they really pulled it off. #TBT, anyone?
The key lies in keeping the rest of your beauty look minimal. Just a bit of mascara and a clear, matte complexion is all you need to let those vampy lips take center stage. And if you're hesitant about opting for full-on opaque black, we recommend starting with a berry hue as seen at Marc Jacobs during NYFW to help ease yourself into the bold trend. You got this.
