5 Bold Lipstick Shades That Work Magic On Dark Skin Women


Far gone are the days when people subscribed to the belief that bold and bright lipsticks do not look great on dark skin women. In the last few years, black beauty enthusiasts have ditched that belief to try bolder lipstick shades and the results are just stunning. Agreed, getting the right bright shade for your own skin tone can be tough as it can either make or break your look.

The key is to match the bold colour to complement or contrast your outfit. Your choice of bright lipstick should work well for your destination. Weekend affairs and nighttime events are among the best places to wear bright lip stains.

I mean, there is something particularly cool about wearing a bold lipstick colour against a dark skin tone. It’s daring, hot and oh so sexy! Though makeup brands have in the past tried to downplay this truth by prioritizing products that cater to only light skin women, many are waking up and jumping on the “commercial black is beautiful” bandwagon. And with that, we’re seeing more bright colours targeted at brown and black women.

If you have you always shied away from bold lipsticks for fear of literally looking funny, we’ve got all the inspiration you need to dab on something different this weekend.

Here are 5 lipstick shades that work magic on dark skin women…
