[DIY] Beautiful deep red lip colour (using black eyeliner/black lipstick and Kate Moss lipstick #107)

December 07, 2013

So I was out last night to a Christmas Dinner party for work and we went to a lovely Thai restaurant! Diep Le Shakers I think it was called? But the food was absolutely amazing! Yum yum! And the drinks were on the boss (well at least we ordered some wine and prosecco and didn't have to pay!) So much fun last night was!

So what did I do make up wise?

Well I really wanted a very deep red lipstick, but I could never find one deep enough for me...

(If Rimmel's Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss #107 is not dark enough for you then try this out!)

So I decided to experiment! I took my black eyeliner (and some black lipstick) and used it as lip liner and lined my lips with it.

Once the out-line was done, I used my Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss #107 and just filled in the rest of my lips. I used a lip brush to blend in the harsher black lines.. and this was the finishing product.

I was so proud of myself! It was a VERY deep red colour, very pretty! But if you don't want it AS dark, you can blot away some of the black and put more of the lipstick on! 
But it makes sense though, if you want any colour darking, just add a bit of black to it! Just like painting!

The great thing with this is that it stains your lips so you don't have to keep reapplying, even after food and drinks!

If you want to draw everyone's attention to the lips, tone the eye makeup down. I like to keep mine neutral. Lots of mascara though to give your eyes a presence! 

If you try this let me know how it goes!

  1. Hello! thank you for your comment on my blog :-)
    wow the finish look is actually really nice! I wouldn't think black eyeliner will help create such a nice deep vampy red lips :-)
    did you have problem with eating or drinking? how did it taste? hehe

    1. Aw thank you for your reply! I'm very new to this! Literally just started so I have no idea how anything works!
      Thank you! No problem with eating or drinking! It actually stayed on quite well surprisingly enough! I just brought the red lipstick with me to the dinner and after eating and drinking I went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and my lips were still very dark and red! I came home after and it was STILL red. So pretty good I think! I didn't taste anything from it, think I was more focused on the food though, yummy thai food! :D hehehe.

    1. Thank you! :D I've just checked it out! You're so beautiful! :D Wouldn't never have said you're 22! I'm still a bit dopey on this as I have no idea how to do anything apart from blog, comment and post. Do you know how I can add my blog entries into my plus.google profile thing? *confused*

  4. I've been doing this with a deep purple shade (too dark to wear on its own!) and a red lipstick, black makes it so much more of a dramatic effect though! I'll have to give it a go :) xx


  5. Love this, it makes the colour so rich and velvety :) xo
