As a wom­an with dark skin, a “nude” lip­stick that may work on some­one with a lighter com­plex­ion may leave me look­ing as though my lips are chapped and dry. Kind of like Tyrone:

Okay, may­be not as bad as Tyrone’s but close enough. That was until I real­ized that “nude” lip­stick on wom­en with dark skin has a whole oth­er mean­ing. Nude typ­i­cal­ly involves shades of brown or, at the very least, a brown liplin­er to give a more nat­u­ral appear­ance. Check out the­se love­ly exam­ples for inspi­ra­tion:

The lip­sticks are great. Mov­ing for­ward, can we kill the “high­light bright as head­lights” trend? It’s only cute on Rudolph.

The lady with the nat­u­ral hair(pic 5) looks real­ly good. She looks fresh, easy breezy and authen­tic.
Sec­ond best is the lady with the faux locs, the specs real­ly suit her and she has a gor­geous smile. Beau­ti­ful indeed :)

This makes me so hap­py!
