#3. Red

#4. Pink

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

#5. Brown

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.
