Carbon Lip.

Black lipstick isn’t just for the goths, remember YSL’s super modern chic ladies with matching black bowl cuts, now didn’t that make you want to wear a slick of black lippy? Add a gloss for vinyl like finish.

Take inspiration from Rooney Mara on the Met gala, wear a statement black lip with minimal face makeup, curled lashes and a coat of black mascara.

Not ready to go for solid black just yet, get your hands Mac seductive dark purple Lorde collaboration called Herione. Its dark, its different and by adding some black to the middle you will have a two dimensional ombre lip, with the illusion of a black but with the smokey softness of the purple around the edges.
