DARK GIRL: The Vamp Lips

There is no such thing as a real trend, in my mind. You just rock what feels right. What looks good. For the month of January, I was feeling extra cozy; all I wanted to do was sleep. Go to work, do good work, come home and sleep. But, when I was out and about,…

It’s all about a smooth, even-toned face, your best concealer and balanced brows that are filled in carefully. At least, that’s my take on rocking dark, black lips as a dark brown girl.

From afar, this lip look may not seem as dimensional as it is. But lucky on-lookers up-close would be able to see that I created my own playful pucker with the Pat McGrath Lust 004 Blood 2 lipstick and a mixture of the gold and red glitter pigments. Easy as 1-2-3. After applying the lip…

Dark Girl: Dark Purple Lipstick

I personally think deep purple is an easy color for darker girls to mess up. I don’t particularly know why, though. It’s so fitting for those moods we get into when we want to look and feel more sultry, than sexy. Perfect for when we want to be noticed but not stared at. It’s weird.…

Dark Girl: Black Lipstick

Black lipstick. I begin the series with this look because it was the first color I was told, personally, that I could never be able to pull off. Truth be told, black lipstick can either look ultra depressing and drab on our dark skin tones, or sexily Gothic and edgy. We’re aiming for the latter.…
