What Color Lipstick Goes With Black Eyeshadow?

Black eyeshadow can be subtle or intense. When pairing your lipstick with black eyeshadow, almost any shade can work. It all depends on the look you want to achieve. Stick to neutral shades if you want the focus to be on your eyes. 

Nude Shades

Matching your lipstick to your skin tone with a nude shade looks great when you wear black eyeshadow. This combination is a nice pair for a daytime event. Nude lipstick seamlessly blends into your overall look. 

Bubblegum Pink

For a very bright look, a popping shade of bubblegum pink lipstick works wonderfully with black eyeshadow. The girlish pink color contrast with the harsh black eyeshadow on your lids. 


The combination of black eyeshadow with a saturated red lip is sultry yet classy at the same time.  It's a great makeup option for those nights you really want to stand out. 

Deep Purple

Don't stray away from unconventional lipstick shades. A deep purple shade like eggplant or mulberry can work with black eyeshadow. 


Pairing a black lipstick with black eyeshadow is very dramatic and can come across as intense. We know it's not for everyone, but if you feel comfortable, rock your black lipstick with a dark smokey eye any day you want.
