Dark Lip Makeup Look

For some reason lately I’ve been liking to pair a super simple eye with a bold lip color. Of course bold eyes with a dark lip look good too, but usually I’m more of a nude lip wearer, so if I do a darker lip then I like my eyes to be a bit lighter. Here’s what I do to achieve this look:2015_0608_01010900.jpg


~Apply concealer to problem areas {Covergirl Invisible Concealer}

~Set with a pressed powder and brush over the rest of your face {NYC Pressed Powder}

~Contour cheeks and temples lightly with bronzer {ELF bronzed/blushed duo}

~Add a darker skin-toned blush on cheeks and blend to your temples {Estee Lauder-Tawny}

~Brush a skintone color all over the eyelid and up to the browbone {Urban Decay-Kinky}

~Blend a cool toned brown/taupe color into the crease {Urban Decay-Teased}

~Tightline upper waterline with a pencil liner and apply a felt tip eyeliner on top of that {LA Colors-Black/Kat Von D-Trooper}

~Add a matte light shade to the browbone {Urban Decay-Foxy}

~Curl eyelashes and add a few coats of mascara {Maybelline Lash Sensational-Black Pearl}


~I used a black liner with a matte pink liquid lipstick for this look, but of course you can use any bold/dark color {Cameo Lip Cream-A03}


  • Always try to line your lips with a lip liner, or even an eye liner, that matches your lipstick
  • If you want to deepen up a lighter color, try lining your lips with a darker liner or even black (like I did)
  • Blot off any excess lipstick so there isn’t any left to make a mess outside of your lips or on your teeth
  • Use concealer around the edges of your mouth to clean up your lines

(And of course you gotta have a little hair fun)
