Runway Trend - Black Lip Balm?

   Goth looks have been making a comeback lately, and while I was on I spotted an intersting commentary on the subject of Goth makeup by Lisa Butler, runway makeup artist. She says, "Don't start wearing black lipstick; it's very unflattering." This statement surprised me, but a second later I thought,"So true".
   Black lipstick can be unflattering, breaking the rules in Natural Beauty. Lisa turned Goth into a natural, beautiful element with black lipbalm. She recommended it as a much better alternative when working on a goth makeup look.
   If you look at the photo below, you will see an example of a Butler Goth Lip. You still can find that impression of Goth, but it looks so much more flattering and beautiful.

 For Emilo Pucci, Lisa blended MAC Lipmix (in black, ofcourse) with the clear lipconditioner that went along with it. The result was a beautiful, 1980s Shiseido lip.

  I just love this new idea, the Goth look now seems so much more wearable now with this new 'black' lip.
