I‘ve been fascinated with the “red lippy” for a while now but there is always the constant struggle to find the shade of red for my lip type. It’s never been easy for me since am a certain skin tone which translates to the fact that many shades of red lipstick just don’t work for me.
This struggle I believe is faced by many black women and it doesn’t help that the red lipstick is always associated with having fun; this association does something to us mentally because we too want to have fun in a cute dress with complimenting red lips. In truth, the red lipstick makes us confident and there is no denying that a swipe elevates any outfit so how do you find the perfect match?
Red lipsticks come in various hues and shades. Some are orangey, others have golden tones while others are simply blood red! All you need to do is find the right shade for your skin tone and you’ll be ready to conquer the world.
