Best Makeup Looks to Pair with a Black Dress

Show everyone you’ve got some serious makeup skills by putting a festive spin on the classic cat-eye. To perfect this look, you’ll have to use a metallic or glittery liquid eyeliner to create a super thick line and wing over the upper lash line.

Start off by using a black eyeliner pencil to fill in the gaps between your lashes. Then use a glittery liquid eyeliner to create an outline on your upper lid. Once you’ve got a good outline going, use the same product to fill it in.

2. Dark lips

Dark lips can be particularly striking when you’re wearing your fav LBD! You can never go wrong with a classic red pout, but a rich burgundy or plum shade is just as beautiful.

When you’re going with a bold lip color, it’s a good idea to keep things simple with the rest of your makeup – or it just looks like there’s way too much going on. You can easily amp up the intensity by using a black eyeliner to line all around the eyes and then topping it off with a more dramatic pair of false lashes.

3. Bold, vibrant eyeshadow

When you’re wearing all black, you can use makeup to add a pop of color into your entire glam situation. The idea here is to choose a specific feature on your face to be the focal point, such as the lips or eyes.

Instead of wearing a bold color on your lips, make your eyes stand out with a bright, vivid color. The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating a stunning playful look with colorful eyeshadow.

For a more daring look, use a single shade of bright eyeshadow over the entire lid. A vibrant shade of orange, pink, purple, or blue looks absolutely stunning when paired with a black outfit.
