Vamp Lips Pt. 1 : Black

One of the hottest beauty trends right now is a vampy lip. It’s a sexy, bold look. When wearing a vamp lip try to keep the rest of your makeup simple and casual which will make the lip really pop. We would advise applying the lipstick with a brush so you have more control and clean lines. This is part one of four and we will focus on black vamp lips first.
