An LBD is every girl’s wardrobe staple. You can dress it up for an evening out and dress it down for a brunch outing. Flattering, slimming and utterly sexy, we all have that one black dress that we turn to when we are in doubt.

So what makeup goes with a little black number? A black dress lends itself very well to some dramatic makeup. You could go with a bold lip or with smouldering eyes and nude lips. Whatever your choice, the black dress can carry it all! Here are some of our favourite looks to wear with your LBD!

Green smoulder

A dark, sultry smoky eye is a great partner to a black dress. But try a green smoky eye for a twist in the traditional. A wash of deep green is a great look for the night.

Drama on your lips

 A bold red lip is a no-brainer. If you want to play up your lip, line your lips with a lip liner and fill in the lips with a bold matte colour. You could also try a hot pink or a bright coral!

A flash of metal in your eyeshadow is the perfect glamorous look for the night. Use a champagne or gold eyeshadow on your eyes and use the same colour to highlight along the top of your cheekbones to tie up the look.

Bold wings

Think Angeline Jolie or closer to home, Deepika Padukone. They draw bold winged liners and keep the rest of their look simple to let the liner take centre stage. It is a very classic, retro look that you can try with your LBD. Also, when you do this look don’t forget to curl your hair in retro waves!

Where there’s fire, there is smoke
 

Where there’s fire, there is smoke

This is a classic. Go dark and slightly smudgy on your eyes with black eyeliner and black eyeshadow. Keep the rest of your face as nude and pale as possible. This is a grungy look and is perfect for the rebel at hearts!
