With Halloween around the corner, many of us beauty gurus will be investing in some bold makeup for a costume. If you costume tends to the creepy side you may be considering black lipstick but how to pull it off? Beauty brand, Lipstick Queen has a solution. Although Black Lace Rabbit appears to be a black-as-night lippe, it’s shockingly wearable and has spurred a whole new trend—the smoky lip.
Smoky lips essentially emulate a smoky eye—a dark, shimmery top coat covers a lighter base coat to intensify the lips. Black Lace Rabbit is so sheer it’ll appear as an elegant purple with a gold shimmering effect when worn alone on your lips. However, layering it over your favorite shade of lipstick is where the magic really begins.
Since it’s a sheer formula, you can darken up any lighter lipstick or add a golden glimmer to a matte shade just by layering Black Lace Rabbit over it (we love how Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog did hers above). This "smoky" layered effect looks chic for Halloween or any time you want a little extra drama. If you’re uncertain about which colors to mix, never fear! Lipstick Queen has released two Smoky Lip Kits with Black Lace Rabbit included to get you familiar with the smoky lip trend. For $35, you get Pinky Nude or Bright Natural.
