6 Bold And Flattering Lipstick Shades For Dark Skinned Women | SR Beauty


The world of beauty is one that is incredibly overwhelming. One minute you’re on the hunt for something and the next minute, you’re instantly swamped with choices. Navigating the world of unique coloured lipsticks can be a tough one. You walk to a stand with tons of different lip colours—nudes, pinks, corals, reds, berries – and they all start to blend together until you see that one colour that sticks out from all the others. It’s different, something you’ve never seen on anyone else’s lips and you know it’s one you need to try on.

Ladies, it’s great to step out of your lipstick comfort zone from time to time. Sure, reds and pinks will never fail you but you’ll be surprised at how great some shades, that you would not normally consider, actually look on you. A flattering lipstick can brighten up your whole face and can easily be the only thing you need to look fab. 

Here are 6 lipstick colours you should try…

Who Says Neutral Is Boring?

Nude lipstick is super versatile. It can be the perfect partner to a sexy smoky eye or bold colored liner, or it can be a toned-down way to look polished. Avoid nudes that are lighter than your skin tone.


Coral is a fabulous and super trendy combination of orange and pink. The bright, summery shade makes a bold statement as it glistens and glamours against surrounding darker skin shades.

It’s orange and it’s awesome!

Sure, we’ve all got a coral lippie in our collection and love a bright orangish-red, but we’re not talking about those. We mean a bright, super orange pout. Matte tangerine lips are perfect for brightening up your face and standing out in the crowd.

Go Green

You seriously need to give this a go! The darker the shade, the better as a darker shade of green would flatter instead of looking stark off.

It’s a Purple affair!

Super trendy and stylish, purple is a must-have for any girls makeup bag. Opt for a lighter shade of purple to really make your pout stand out with bright coloring, or choose a darker and more tantalizing purple shade for a dreamy and desirable look. It just depends on your particular style – but both look magnificent against darker skin tones!

Brown sugar

Brown lipstick gets a bad wrap. It’s quite often overlooked and thrown into the ‘unwearable’ cadre because we can’t seem to understand how it fits into our lives. When it comes to rockin’ a neutral, earthy shade like brown, contrasting is the key. Just make sure you’re opting for a deep brown shade instead of light, which can make your lips appear nude and dull.
