Rich mahogany skin is a thing of beauty, so any makeup you put on your face must match it perfectly. After all, cosmetics are supposed to enhance your appearance, not take away from it. Choosing the color you glide on your pout must complement your gorgeous skin tone and leave you looking better than you already do. Since there's just about nothing hotter than a deep lip, it's totally understandable you want to rock one. Just make sure you go with a shade that sizzles, instead of simply falling flat.
Slide on an orange-based red if you want to don a crimson lip, suggests "Harper's Bazaar" magazine. Ladies with dark tones usually look best with these warmer shades, as they typically complement your skin's coloring. This sexy shade will also brighten up your complexion and make your teeth look crazy white, as well.
Go with a dark pink when you want to look flirty and feminine, suggests "Cosmopolitan" magazine. Pink shades can look deep, particularly when they feature hints of purple throughout. And the pink hue creates a stunning contrast between your skin and your lips, which makes them all the more kissable.
Look for a deep plum to beautify your already gorgeous lips. This sultry shade brings out any cool tones you have in your skin and makes them look even more stunning, says "Marie Claire" magazine. Since you're going dark on the lips; however, it's a good idea to go light on your other makeup to prevent looking too done up.
Prevent your rich lip color from venturing out past your kisser by lining your lips first. Choose a liner that matches your lipstick, then use it to lightly outline your pout. This keeps your color where it should be and not on the skin around your mouth, which is surely grounds for you to end up on someone's Facebook page as a "Fashion Don't."
