This trend is not entirely just about aesthetics, it’s about expressing power and drawing attention using make-up. This lip trend shouts confidence and courage to explore the dark side.

We have no doubt that this will be a signature look for the season and many more to come. A jet black lip will immediately modernise any wardrobe choice you make.

Black lips became popular with the rise of rock n' roll when punks and goth enthusiasts wore it. The major difference between then and now is that this lip is crisp and pristine.

To achieve this look use a dark berry hue on the inner lip and line with a black liner, you can wear glossy like at Dior or matt like at Marni.
