Brown Girls In The Nude: Neutral Lipstick Shades for Us

July 31, 2012 ‐ By Tamiya King

If you’re not a huge fan of bold lipstick, or if you want to add more natural shades to your makeup bag, nude hues are the way to go. These tan and brown lipstick variations look stunning on women of color, and can serve as an understated way to accentuate the ample pouts black women are known for. Here are a few shades to try this fall:

    divaa, I agree with you regarding the wet n wild 502a dark pink frost. I found it at rite aid and guess what? It’s only 99 cent and it’s very pretty.

      I’m mad. I can’t wear any Wet N Wild products. Their eyeliners make my eyes water so much it smears and looks like I’m crying. I wind wiping it all off. Their lipsticks make my lips break out with blisters all over them.

    Yeah I wish there were more than 3 shades as well. I have the wet n wild shade and it really is pretty on brown skin.

    Um, tamiya you only posted two lipsticks. Can please more lipsticks and less celebrities. Or better yet if you are posting the celebrities make sure you know which lipstick brand that the celebrity is wearing. Like the articles besides that :-)s

      hi shelshel–there are three lipstick brands posted, with an example for each. thanks for the read–hope that helps. i know there are several more shades, but i figured these three look good on a number of skin tones, and are easy to find 🙂

      Try MAC’s Fresh Brew or Velvet Teddy. I’m dark brown and they both look great on me. Hope this helps!
