When we throw on head-to-toe black – which is usually 6 out of 7 days a week (the exception being the day everything black has taken a trip to the dry-cleaner) – there’s always some uncertainty around what to do with our face.

Do you tie-in some black liquid liner? Some sort of lip? Or is it better just to keep it natural?

There’s no definitive, one-size-fits-all rule, but we’ve come up with a bit of a fail-safe routine that always looks the part, no matter where you’re going.

And out of the goodness of our huge hearts, we’re going to show you how to do it, too…. in just 5 minutes or less.
