Take into account that to make them stand out you must wear minimalist or minimal make-up. Beauty expert Jessie Powers created a few tips on how to use a black lipstick in the right way. Are you ready to meet them? Here we go …
1. Use a lip liner
It is mandatory to use it when wearing dark colors. They have a double purpose: to fill the entire lip and create a good base so that the color does not run. Dark colors contrast with the surrounding skin, so delineation is essential to create a crisp, clean edge. Try not to apply the eyeliner after the labial because you will cause it to run more easily.
2. Choose opaque or matte lipstick
The creamy finishes tend to fade quickly, in addition, they look irregular and give the appearance of a messy application.
3. Dark lips work best with little makeup
To avoid having a very heavy makeup, it is advisable to define and fix the eyebrows, use a minimum of makeup in the eyes and opt for a blush soft. Let your lips be where the eyes are focused.
4. If you want to create drama use a bright shadow
Strength is always going to focus on eyes and lips, so if you combine dark lips with a bright and high impact eyeshadow you will make your makeup look dramatic.
5. The blush helps to avoid the “washed face” effect
If your dark lipstick is making your face look washed or very pale adds an extra color; Use a little bronzer to shine your face. Apply a metallic shadow on the lacrimal to give extra volume to your face.
6. Avoid the contour heavy
Dark lipstick can make over-emphasized cheekbones look emaciated.
7. Find the lipstick that suits your skin tone
When it comes to choosing a tone, it is good to try a variety of different colors to find the one that is best. The pink lipstones complement the light skin tones, while the blue colors are better for the mid tones of the skin and make the teeth look whiter.
8. Make sure your daring lips last all day or night
To make dark lipsticks look perfect all the time, apply some translucent powder around the edge of the lips. Use a flat shadow brush or a cotton swab for precise application.
9. It is not necessary to retouch them, but you must take care of them
Use a straw or straw for when you consume a drink, in this way you will prevent the lipstick from wearing out in the center of the lips; Also, be careful to apply lip gloss over a lip if you are concerned about its durability. The lip gloss tends to fade the color of the lips rather quickly.
10. Exfoliate your lips
Make sure they are soft and exfoliated using appropriate products for that task, or, you can do it with a little sugar and coconut oil.
