Dangerous Lipstick Picks For Dark-Skinned Girls

Woman with black lipstick

When I transitioned from the shimmery lip-gloss (back when lip gloss was poppin’) to picking out a lipstick color—the transition was a bit of a challenge.  I wasn’t sure if I should go matte or glossy, dark or light blah blah blah.  As a black girl with a darker complexion,  I knew the Barbie pink lipstick that worked for Nicki Minaj would most definitely NEVER work for me. Black girls needs to understand the science behind what looks good and what does not. DO NOT wear bright pink lipstick or massive amounts of it when you have a darker complexion—that doesn’t make your face pop.  Lipstick in a sense adds certain flair and pop to an outfit and to yourself. Define your face with a color that matches.  For darker complexions, darker colors seem to work well—even for those of a lighter complexion, you can never go wrong with a dark lip.
