Spring lipsticks for women of color
Hi Lovebugs! So this post is actually a lookbook of Spring lipsticks for women of color. It’s a collaboration with 7 other melanin beauties! The looks are centered around bright spring lipsticks to encourage women of color to embrace all the spring trends! You don’t have to feel left out girl! Alot of darkskin or women of color are so scared to go out of the box and stick to neutral lipsticks as they feel that thats all that will good on them. Well I’m here to tell you, you can rock any lipstick color fiercely! Yes you can be a part of all the fun looks you see on the runways. It’s so disheartening that many women of color feel they can’t wear bright lipsticks because they’ve been told bright colors are not pretty on darker skin. Well it’s a lie and hopefully by the end of this blog post you will feel inspired. Thanks to Melanie of mattesandmettalics.com for coming up with the idea of the collaboration. All of the bloggers included will be listed below check out their take on these bright lipsticks. Hope you enjoy my take on these spring lipsticks for women of color.
So there’s 4 color lipsticks we had to include for these looks- purple, pink, orange, and coral. I hope you girls love the looks I created. Let’s get into it!
Here is an all over purple look that I created. I wanted to be a little more bold with the eyes and lips. Usually for a bold lip I would do a neutral eye but I wanted to create a fun look. Click Colourpop zipper to purchase.
Pink- Mac Candy yum yum
I used a brownliner to line my lips and tone down the lipstick a bit. Click Mac Candy Yum Yum to purchase.
Orange- Milani Orangeina & NK Cosmetics Orange tint
