was not the only to rock black lipstick in the new Telephone music video. Lady Gaga too, rocked it with matte skin, denim blue eyeshadow and pink blush. Flashback to the 80s anyone?

Since black lipstick is already super dramatic to wear on its own, I opted for glowy skin, a shimmery navy blue eyeshadow and left the cheeks bare to make the look more wearable.

The black lipstick trend first started on the Fall 2008 runways. Yves Saint Laurent paired it with a nude eye and Dior threw in a twist with heavily winged out eyeliner.

Now the queen of fierce, Beyonce, is wearing the look in her latest video for Telephone with Lady Gaga (who is also spotted rocking the same lip color in the video). Read on to find out how you can dupe the look!

The two-tone lip first made its debut on the runway at the Emanuel Ungaro A/W 2009 RTW show where beauty guru Tom Pecheux used an orange lipstick (MAC Morange) on the upper lip and a dark fuchsia (MAC Violette) on the lower. This year, a similar look was created by MAC for the Nanette Lepore A/W 2009 show. Lip Pencil in Magenta and a new lipstick launching this fall topped the upper lip while the lower lip was painted with Lip Pencil in Burgundy, Lipstick in Odyssey and Pro Lipstick in Charred Red.

I personally think the look is cute but it’s definitely not for everyday. Depending on the colors you use, it can also be a great look for spring. Read on to see my take on it!
