How To Select Lipstick that Complements African-American Coloring

The best part of an African-American woman’s face is her lips. Nobody could possibly smile with such luscious and full lips more than an African-American woman. Her lip line is naturally firm and raised. She has the sexiest and the most beautiful natural pout in the world.

Most people think that there is a limited color range that looks good on African-American women. However, there are actually many color shades that complement their lips. The following tips can help you choose the right lipstick for you.

Consider your complexion. There are two basic types of skin tones: cool skin tone and warm skin tone. In general, African-American women fall into the warm skin tone type. However, African-American skin tones still vary. To find a lipstick that looks good on you, first determine what skin color range you have. If you have a lighter range of skin tone, pale to deep pink, red, taupe and peach colors will look good on you. Medium-toned African women, on the other hand, should consider lipstick colors like magenta, bronze and medium to deep brown. Red and medium to deep pink colors will also look great. If your skin falls into a darker range, deep red, bronze, chocolate brown, magenta and fuchsia shades are your best choices.

Consider the event. Although African-American women look good wearing bold shades of lipstick, the event where you will wear it plays an important role. If you are working, avoid wearing bright and glossy shades of lipstick. No matter what type of complexion you have, it is not appropriate to wear these kinds of lipstick in an office environment. Nude lipstick will do best for daily office wear. Shades of nude lipstick are also nice to wear if you want a more subtle and sophisticated look. The best time to wear glossy, dramatic and bright lipstick is during nighttime.

However, if you love wearing bold shades of lipstick, you can still make it work. Just make sure to keep the rest of your make-up subtle. For example, if you want to wear a bold red lipstick, try matching it with light-lined eyes, small amounts of blush and light mascara. This will make you look sophisticated and sexy.

Think about the type of lipstick you want. Today, there are different types of lipstick available. Most of them contain conditioner and emollient ingredients. Types of lipstick include cream lipstick, frosted lipstick, long-lasting lipstick, lip-gloss, translucent lipstick, silver sparkling frost, non-fragrance lipstick and matte lipstick. All of these types have different functions for your lips. For example, you can wear long-lasting lipstick if you are attending an all-night event. However, if you are going for a more conservative look, try matte type lipsticks. However, this will make your lips look dry so make sure you apply lip balm to moisturize your lips.

When selecting lipstick, remember that the primary rule is to select a shade that will complement your skin tone. As African-American women, you can use these tips to choose the right color of shade that will look great on you. Also, do not be afraid to experiment. Almost all shades of lipstick will look good on an African-American woman if you know the proper way to blend colors.
