What lip color are you currently wearing?

Best lipstick colors for black women (Huddahcosmetics)

The choice of color that one picks for their lips is really up to them. No one, not even trends should force you to wear a lip color you don’t fancy. Lipsticks are supposed to be that finishing touch. The one thing that brings the whole face beat to life and because of that, you need to make a great choice on the colors you pick. Nowadays, you can find a lipstick in nearly any color out there even shimmery ones and overly bold colors – the blues, yellows and greens. Of course, not every lip color will look bomb on you, in fact, not every color is suitable for every day environments. Take for instance wearing a black lippie to the office. Definitely doesn’t work like that. Bold lippies are preserved for some occasions like nights outs, fashion or artsy events or when you’re trying to make a statement. With that being said, if you’re one who likes to play it safe, there are lipstick colors that always complement black skin. Regardless of where your skin tone falls on the black skin color spectrum, you can never go wrong with these lippies.

1. Brown.

Have you noticed that brown is so in right now? You can go for darker or lighter hues of brown, depending on your skin tone or even mix the brown with another lip color to achieve your perfect brown color.

2. Burnt orange.

This is the perfect substitute for the red lip in my opinion. Bold yet subtle in its own way.

3. Classic deep red.

The pick-me-up color. You can be having the worst morning ever and the minute you put on your red lipstick, you’re good to go. Also, is it just just me or does a red lipstick really make the teeth look super white? Just gotta love it!

4. Magenta.

That pinkish purplish color is another must-have as it will never let you down.

5. Burgundy.
