This season, black is back. The world has finally caught on to fact that jet, stark, onyx, coal, or midnight black is smokin when infused in fashion. In fact, black has made an unlikely entrance in makeup — specifically lipstick. While some may frown at the shock of dark lips, others will find that it is extremely elegant when done right.
Well, what exactly is “right” then? Right is smooth, untouched-by-sun-skin. It is minimal eye makeup and exfoliating lips before applying. Right is using a lipliner (although eyeliner works too) to keep color from bleeding all over the place. Right is sticking your finger in your mouth and pulling it out to wipe away potential teeth stains. Right is brushing, flossing, and whitenening your teeth. Right is rockin the black lips while simultaneously looking feminine. Here are some It Girls who got it right…
