Lips
Lipstick is a great way to play with your look. Pump up your style in a flash with one of these shocking colors. Don’t like it? Wipe it all off and try again. Tip: While makeup artists can go wild for a magazine spread, it’s best to keep the rest of your face pretty and neutral with some black mascara. Skip the blush so it doesn’t compete with the lip color.

  • Just a few years ago, it seemed like people were terrified of really bold lips. Now, they’re everywhere! I love that brown women have stepped out of the box and are rocking color fearlessly! These are beautiful shots!

    I own a tube of blue lipstick, and it looks FABULOUS against my brown skin. I ordered it from Keyshia Ka’oir, and I admit that at first, I was nervous. lol But when I tried it on, I was like “whoa!” It’s definitely not for the shy or the meek. But you can rock it anywhere casual. It especially looks great in the club or at a concert, and since this is the Instagram generation, the pictures from the events look really cool.

    Don’t sleep on unconventional colors like blue, yellow, green, white, or whatever else. They’re not for everywhere or everyone, obviously. (I’m in my 20’s, so I wouldn’t suggest it for anyone older than 30 or so.) But they’re cooler than you think. As long as you apply it right, accessorize well, and walk with confidence, you’ll look cool.

      I was with you until the age comment. I’m not older than 30, but why the hell would a 29 year old be able to better rock blue lipstick than a 31 or 32 year old? They’re going to essentially look the same. I think mindsets like that need to go… 30 isn’t the end-all be-all of being able to experiment with your look or the age at which “conventional” style and fashion becomes “mandatory” instead of “optional.” And I’m going to say that also applies to 40. And 50. And 60. And 70… I saw this kickass granny at Meijer several months ago. Decked out in shades, leopard print pants, flashy as hell and looked awesome doing her own thing. And inwardly I thought “THAT’S how I want to look at 70.” Not resigned to blah colors and style because society deems banal is how I should express myself at that age.

      I have to agree with Courtney and I must also add that I think whether the color of lipstick works or not depends on the person’s general “look” (look meaning your style) much more than their age (whether you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or older).

  • I love these colors. These pictures are so pretty!
