I really hate to call the use of Black lipstick a "TREND", cause really it is not! There were THOUSANDS OF GOTHS using pitch black lipstick and dark eye make-up to express what they felt inside before Naomi Campbell was successfully convinced to slap on some of that black stuff on her lips.
It literally took me five minutes to create this look (all the while I was BBMing with my boyfriend), plus! for the first time in a year I'm actually wearing some foundation. I know people find it difficult to believe that as a make up artist and wardrobe stylist I don't really use that many products, but this is because its almost IMPOSSIBLE to find the correct colour for my skin tone. In these pictures I mixed three different colours of MAC liquid foundation, finished off with layers of Sleek luminous powder to achieve the desired effect.
Instead of using the traditional black lipstick, I grabbed my MAC eyeliner in black smoulder and proceeded to colour my lips. The same eyeliner is used underneath my eyes. And a MAC eyebrow pencil in the colour "stud" is use to give my eyebrows a statement.
