Try this unconventional backstage beauty trick for creating a vampy lip that lasts.

Caitlin Power Fall 2013 beauty

At Caitlin Power F/W '13, the look was power lips—paired with silvery eyes and a sleek chignon. Call it 1940s-inspired beauty with an edge.

The trick to those super-dark lips? Grace Lee, lead makeup artist for Maybelline New York, used eyeliner—black eyeliner—as a base, which helps to create the deep, rich, wine-coloured stain.

Here's what to do...

Get the look

1. Outline and fill in your lips with Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner in Midnight Master.

2. Apply Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor in Deepest Cherry while the liner is still wet, blending them together with a lip brush.

3. Layer Maybelline New York Super Stay 14HR Lipstick in Wine and Forever on top to create a slightly matte-textured finish.

Pair your bold lips with Maybelline New York Color Tattoo Metal 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow in Silver Strike all over the lids and inner corners, along with winged eyeliner and a light coat of mascara.
