Makeup Wars: Unique Spring Trends – Black lipliner!

| April 1, 2013 | 42 Comments

The Makeup Wars gals are back with another post and I am super excited to feature this one. I’ve been catchin’ up on beauty trends and I am excited to announce that rocking black lipliner is finally a legit trend.


Yes!! ‘Bout time, right? For years, many of us would rock black EYEliner on our lips. I’m not even going to front and act like I didn’t. Black eyeliner and silver gloss blended together was totally my look in high school. It wasn’t until I hit college where I realized that rockin’ black liner on the lips didn’t compliment me. Or anyone for that matter. And so I let it go.


But after flipping through magazines and hittin’ the beauty blogs, I’ve come across so many articles that are announcing that black liner on the lips is finally in. I’ve seen it worn several ways.

There’s the thick liner with very little blending…


And my favorite, thick liner WITH red lipstick. Yes!!!


Fierce, right? I’m loving it and I am so glad that this trend is officially a trend. I know brown girls everywhere are rejoicing. I’ve even heard that some brands will be launching black lipliner. No need to use your black eyeliner for your lips anymore. I love how versatile this look is. It’s perfect for those of us who have to be all professional on our jobs but then it’s also great for after-work Happy Hour with the girls. I’m thinking black liner on the lips will be my signature look. I am just that much in love with it.

Whatcha think, gals? Are you feeling this look?

Check out some of the other trends my Makeup Wars sisters are rockin’…

    That looks absolutely awesome on you! It would be really cool to pair that with the super bold eyeliner trends that are going on now too!

      Thanks mama!! Next time you come to FL, I’ll take you to the Lancome counter. They have a makeup artist there who is awesome at achieving this look.

    I cannot tell you how glad I am that the black lip liner look is back in style! I have for years been regretting getting the permanent lip tattoo in black, but now I can stop concealing it and let my black lined lips shine (so to speak) I think they look especially beautiful on you with the red lipstick! So sophisticated!

    I think I’ll pass. This one isn’t coming back for me. I secretly hope the most women let this one pass as well.

  15. Paula says:

    I like the idea of this look, but I’m afraid it might be too harsh on my freckled face. Maybe a dark brown liner might work instead?

  17. You know how when you kiss someone with red lipstick on and leave an impression? Just think how gorgeous the impression would be with the black liner too. I love this on you.

    LOL, April fools, but black lined lips were HOTTT almost twenty years ago, like in ’96, how do I know, cause a young OSHH did that ish!!!!

  22. Natasha says:

    It’s baaack! I remember this trend from the 70’s-80’s… do you think a white girl could rock this trend? It would be uber-fierce….or not.

  23. Lisalis says:

    I admit…it took me a minute to get this. Part of the problem is that B is just so cute! Girl, you are giving us the full diva face with that red/black lip! But when I checked the other Makeup Wars:Unique Spring Trends, I could tell it was definitely an April Fool’s joke.

  24. Eugenia says:
