How to Wear Black Lipstick

Let professional makeup artist Patricia Longo teach you how to wear black lipstick in this makeup tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, I'm Patricia Longo and I'm a celebrity make-up artist. I've worked with models from Sports Illustrated like Brooklyn Decker and Julie Henderson to Alec Baldwin at 30 Rock. All those things that experts do that the average person doesn't know how to do, we'll learn how to do it on these videos. Black lipstick usually give a goth look, almost like Lady Gaga these days. If you take the black eyeliner and use it like a lip liner and you shape your lips with that first. And then, you put the black lipstick on. But when you do black lips, it's a very goth look, which means the rest of your face should be pale. No blush, nothing else. Just those black goth lips. And you can do smokey eyes, as well. And that gives you a Lady Gaga look if you're going for that.
