Today is World Goth Day. While we’re fans of unconventional lip colors for every day of the year, it would be wrong not to make like some of our favorite goth icons and embrace black lipstick today. If you’re still debating about whether you can actually pull off black lipstick, we’re here today to tell you that you definitely can.

Black lipstick might look intimidating in the bullet, but when you get used to it on your lips, you will see how cool it is. Not to mention that you can use it to create a number of different looks from a punkish one to a glamorous goth one.

Forget about the rule that says you have to choose between bold eyes and bold lips. This glamorous look is proof that you can rock both at the same time.

5. Black and Red Ombre Lips

Work your red lipstick into your vampy look by creating a black and red ombre lip.

6. Silver Eyeliner and Black Lipstick

Do you want something besides black in your makeup look, but you’re not sure about adding rainbow brights? Enter some shimmering silver liner on your bottom lash line.

7. Glossy Black Lipstick and Rosy Cheeks

Are you worried that black lipstick will completely wash you out? Counteract the deep lipstick by layering on the rosy blush.

8. Silver Eyes and Black Lipstick

Brighten up the black with some shimmering silver eyeshadow. Tie everything together by adding some black shadow on the outer corners of your eyes.

9. Iridescent Black Lipstick

Are you not quite ready for straight black lipstick? Add a bit of shimmering teal pigment on top of your black lipstick. It works as a subtle top coat and gives your lips more dimension.

10. Pink Eyeshadow and Black Lipstick

Here’s your proof that black lipstick can be classed as girly. Add some color into the mix with a pretty pink shadow. If you want to add some pink hair, go for it.

11. Black Liquid Liner, Pink Shadow and Black Lipstick

Flicked black eyeliner and black lipstick is already a pretty combination. However, she has added a hint of color with a soft wash of pink shadow.
