Best Lipsticks for Brown Girls

July 7, 2020

A beauty guru I am not.  I have never worn eyeshadow except for that one time at my senior prom when I tried to get adventurous and put glitter all over my lids ( you can rest assured there are no pictures from that event).  I don't try winged liner or get too wild when it comes to my makeup.  Learning how to do my everyday face is a skill I've mastered and I'm always scared to try to add too many more steps to it.  Now,  even though I may not add a smokey eye and huge voluminous lashes, when I do want to add a little Sazon seasoning to the look I always play around with my lip colors.

It's pretty ironic because growing up I walked around sucking in my bottom lip because I was so embarrassed by how big they were.  Oh to be young and foolish.  When I first started wearing lipsticks I had a VERY hard time finding colors that complimented my skin tone.  After years of nudes that looked like I literally just rubbed ash onto my lips, and bright colors that washed me out,  I'm here to help us brown girls with shades that really accentuate our glow, because WE HAVE SO MUCH GLOW SIS!!!

So those lips I once used to hide?  I flaunt them every single chance I get.  Unfortunately, right now masks don't really allow us to show off our lipsticks, BUT in preparation for better days, I wanted to give you guys a list of my favorite lipsticks for black girls.

Check out the links below ladies.  Let me know if you give any of these a try I would love to see how it worked out for you.  Tag me on Instagram @guiltyofglitz_ so I can see!!!


Because if we are being all the way real Red lipstick is my color.  I wear a variety of different colors, but red is always my safe place.  I know if I throw on a red lip it will elevate a disheveled face or a basic outfit.  Please don't say it's too bright for you.  Listen,  I wouldn't steer your wrong.  If you are a brown girl I promise you that a red lip will accentuate your black girl magic.  I wouldn't steer you wrong sis.  My Fave Reds are:

Plums and Pinks

PINK WAS MADE FOR BLACK GIRLS, and this was truly hard concept for me to become comfortable with.  I always felt like pink was a little too bright for my complexion and the ones I had previously experimented with really washed out my skin tone.  Not all pinks are created equal.  You may just need to find a pink or plum with a deeper tone.  This will help it to better compliment your complexion.  Here are a few of my faves.

1. Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte: FAB
2. MAC: Flat out Fabulous
3. MAC: Rebel
4. Mented Cosmetics: Hot Date
5. The Lip Bar:Prima Donna

Deeper Colors

In the fall I typically love deeper tones.  Don't get me wrong, I still sneak a red in regardless of the season, but I do tend to reach for a darker color more often in the colder months.
