The black lipstick looks have remained trendy since the ’90s but the sole concern has remained on how to flaunt your black beauty lips elegantly.

So, let’s not carry the black makeup looks as only a part of the Halloween costume and have a glance at our recommended 15 black lipstick looks.

1. Pairing the Opposites (Red with Black lip lining)

If we consider red as the epitome of beauty then traditionally black is a type cast as witchcraft. But it’s time to turn over the table by bringing the two bright lipstick shades in one frame.

You can draw a pouty lip layout by using MAEPEOR black Matte Lipstick and Lip Liner set. The reason to choose black lip liner from MAEPOR is their velvety finishing and complete dark texture.

For your inner lips, apply a radiant red matte lipstick which will give you an utterly beautiful transformation. We recommend using Sephora in wanted Rouge Matte Lipstick which you will get for $15.5 in online stores. This red matte lipstick consists of shea butter to receive you from dry lips.

2. Pale Blue Eyeshadow with Black lips

Here’s another makeup look with black lipstick without a Goth effect. You can use any pale blue eye shadow to finger it around the two corners of your eyes.

The idea of creating such a look is not concealing the dark circles or contouring the near eye areas but to flaunt with it. Then naturally line your eyes using the Honey Bronze gel pencil of Etude House.

When you run out of blue eyeshadow, buy Victoria Beckham Beauty Smoky eye palette ($56 + shipping) which creates a matte but silky overall impression.

3. Metallic eyes and dark lips.

Makeup looks with black lipstick can become far more interesting when you use your metallic eyeshadow palette. Near your eyelids, you can add a golden shimmery highlighter and pair it with big eyelashes.

Eyeshadow product models like Goldfinger from Nars Single Eyeshadow are suited for all skin types and that’s why they come on our top list.

The Milani Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick helps you with a chic appearance and comes as low as $7 per piece. You will feel a hydrated lip tone which goes for every season.

4. The black glossy business

If you love wearing sparkles, then it’s time to come out of matte dark formulas. Selecting a good gloss would add vibrancy.

Whatsoever, a nonsticky glossy shade with a black texture is not easy to get. Relax! We know how to make your extra black experience easy. The Haus Laboratory Le Rip Gloss Vortex Ed. provides you with mirrorless shiny lips.

Passionately wearing this as a part of black lipstick makeup looks will add self-confidence to your persona as the founder Lady GaGa has always mentioned.

5. Pair Black Lipstick with Pink Eye Shadow

Imagine how awesome you would create a makeup image after combining pink eyes with black lips. It’s like recreating one of the bold Harley Quin’s badass looks.

Besides that pairing, it with pink will also come under black lipstick without a goth makeup impression. For partying or girls’ night out you can anytime get ready with this pink yet black mode on!

Wanna transform the idea into a more dramatic outcome, try out Gucci’s luxurious Rouge à Lèvres Satin crystal black shade (approx. $40-$42 shipping charge included) Also, you can use this Gucci product for a soft look.

6. Comfy black matte

Sometimes all you need is to maintain the simplicity and implement the idea with a soft matte lip shade. But ensure that you don’t use any opaque shades which would neutralize the complete look.

For getting a subtle but intense look use soft matte lipstick shades like Makeup Forever Super Lustrous The Luscious Mattes Lip color at $8 approx. The soft matte lip shades are well pigmented due to which two coats are more than enough.

7. Outlined black with nude shades

How much is too much if you doubt that, then always choose a mid path.

Many ’90s youths have simply outlined their lips with black lip liner and maintained a natural or nude shade as a whole. You can also think about creating an Ombré black lipstick sequence.

8. The ombre effect

For transforming to Ombre make-up effect here’s what you need: two nude lipstick shades with a black lip liner. Also, don’t miss using a lip brush.

We would suggest picking up Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk and Mrs. Kisses golden peach as a pair. Both come within a price range of $-32$35 including shipping. Lip Cheat lip liner from Charlotte Tilbury is quite efficient.

The next step is wearing the lightest shade at the center ( for us it is Pillow talk) and the darker shade next to the liner. Once done, blend them carefully using a brush so that your lips don’t look messed up.

9. Smooth empowered Black lipstick Look for Brown Skin

Unlike fair skin makeup trends, carrying black or dark brown lipstick for dark skin tone itself is a kind of boldness considering the stereotypical society we live in.

But make-up enthusiast Melana Yvette knows how to fetch out the best from brown skin tone. She shared that the secret to flawless black lipstick looks on brown skin is first to smooth your uneven face using a powerful concealer and foundation.

And then with a simple eyeshadow texture, you can coat any black lipstick. We recommend Kat Von D’s black lipstick available in between the price range of $22-$25 from Sephora. Such brands are ever-lasting and go perfectly for brown and Asian skin tones.

10. Precise Matte ambiance for beginners

The key to having a precise matte finishing is at first lining the tip of your lips using a brush. But often the dark matte lip shades tend to make your lip drier so, we know how to avoid such concerns.

You can apply some kind of moisturizer to stay hydrated. Once you finely line your lips, now you are ready to add dark pigment to the rest of your lower and upper lips.

Beauticians recommend using a concealer or lip brushes to maintain the right proportion for both your lips. Ensure that your brushes are completely cleaned not by using a remover before applying the new shades.

11. Queen of matte

A complete matte transformation would convince any viewer that you are using such a related filter. What we mean is that it looks too surreal and dreamy to be true.

But before applying super matte lipstick don’t forget to have a powdery face. Use About Face Night (from $20 on words )sight to have an extraordinary matte impression.

12. Luster charcoal lip finishing

We bet you can’t afford to miss this extravagant luster and charcoal black lip finishing view. There are some awesome lip glosses available in the market to help you with the black iridescent lip metamorphosis.

Here’s what we would recommend :

  • Buy Patrick Ta Major Glow Lip Shine from  SEPHORA within the $20-$23 range. Why? because the product uses no sticky formula which suits everyone and cones with high shiny finishing. However, it can be costly as compared to others.
  • You can pick Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Gloss at $35. The following lip product is also there in the beauty e-stores like Blookingdal and Nordstrom. Ingredients like collagen are used to formulate the lip gloss. There are two concerns about lipstick: firstly they are sticky and also you may trickle while applying.

  • Lastly, if you want something less pricey, the Maybelline New York Lip Lifter Gloss is a great deal for you. Purchase them from Amazon with great discounts. But the lipgloss is comparatively less lasting than other recommended lip head balms. 

13. The stripe aesthetics

When you master lip designing or filling art, then you can anytime design your masterpiece. But making stripe lip looks or any other particular design is only possible with a promising lip kit.

Maybelline python metallic lip kit available at a lower price between $4-$6 is best suited for covering a subtle elegant appearance.  Every dark lip kit comes with two shades, one for the base and the other as a lip shadow.
