The truth is, you can rock black lipstick without looking super scary. As you already know, black is a very versatile color and rocking a black lipstick can transform the most simple look to an amazing appearance. See Easy ways to rock a black lipstick:
1. Prep your lips: Since you want your lipstick to last throughout the day without cracking or needing reapplication every nor and then, you have to prep it. Prepping it means exfoliating with a lip scrub or applying a mixture of honey and sugar on your lips before scrubbing gently. Scrubbing your lips will not just help to remove dead cells, it makes the lips smooth as well. After that, apply a lip balm to moisturize.
2. Apply a lip liner: A lip liner works for your lipstick the same way a primer works for foundation. Lining the lips will help it to stay in place and last long at the same time. If you have thin lips, a liner can even make a fuller one.
3. Apply the lipstick: After you apply the liner, you need to apply your lipstick with a lip brush and smack your lips. Re-apply once more and then dust your lips with a translucent setting powder. This will absorb the excess lipstick seamlessly. And if you fancy a glossy finish, an application of a lip-gloss is necessary.
