My dark Lips. Please help !
Q: Hi, I was wondering what lipsticks would be good to use on dark pigment lips.
A: Can I please first just say that you are a very beautiful black woman with a lovely smile!
I have some great news for you...You can wear almost any color lipstick you want even if you have dark lips.
The trick is that to keep the "true" color of the lipstick intact you just need to prime your lips with some foundation before you put the lipstick on.
That's right, the same foundation that matches your skin. just put a little bit of it on your lips with a sponge or your fingers to make the color evenly matched with your skin.
Wait a minute or two for it to dry, then apply your lipstick (any color your heart desires) and the color will not only show true like it does on the stick, but it will also stay on your lips longer because of the foundation base underneath.
It's a trick makeup artists have been using for years and it works very well.
Be as bold as you want to be with your lip colors. Just make sure that you choose colors that work with your undertones and that make you feel gorgeous!
