The Autumn Lipstick Lookbook for Dark Skintones | Part 1

The Autumn Lipstick Lookbook for Dark Skintones  |  Part 1

Hey guys, so we are at that time again….Autumn (or Fall depending on the side of the pond you are on). Honestly, I love this time of year. As much as I love the sun rays, making this melanin pop, it gets tiring some times! Commuting on public transport has been a nightmare this summer! But before I digress and start rambling on about that, I love the colours that come with Autumn. I love the deep reds, browns that come out at this time of the year, especially on my lips. To all my chocolate ladies, do not be afraid to try out these colours. These colours look great on any skintone.

So I’ve put together a list of lipsticks that look great on any skin tone, especially dark skin tones. Let me know if you have any more suggestions, I am always open to try new lipsticks.

Part 1 will show the Deep Reds,Berries and the Blues. Part 2 will have the Browns and Blacks.
