Before Kylie Jenner basically broke the internet when she created her own lip colors, she got by on beauty hacks just like you and I to get those perfect results. The makeup maven recently came out with a new, matte black color to add to her collection, but before she concocted a stellar goth lippie of her own, she was forced to get creative. “Black Lips Forever,” the 18-year-old captioned a collage on Instagram of herself donning the hue in question. “I used black eyeliner when it wasn't as easy to find matte black lipstick.”
In a later, throwback Instagram post, Kylie said that the launch of the new hue — Dead of Knight — was in honor of her younger self. “Back when I only dreamed of having my own lip line,” she wrote. “16 yr old me would be so proud. @kyliecosmetics this new kit is so important to me.” We’re suckers for a good beauty hack, and this one is pretty impressive (though, by no means a new concept). Now, if you can’t get your hands on a Dead of Knight tube, you can take a page out of Kylie’s beauty book and pick up an eye pencil instead. It’s guaranteed to be easier to nab, at least.
