Growing up in the 1990s, I vividly remember all of the beauty moves that were made by major trendsetters. Stars like Mary J. Blige, Lil Kim and Foxy Brown donned brown lips that perfectly complemented their skin tones and unique style. If you didn’t have a muddy lip, you were missing out on what was in. Since then, African-American women have strayed to brighter, funkier colors to show off their personalities. Pinks, red, purples, and even blues. We’ve branched out, but forgotten just how chic a full brown lip can be.
With ‘90s nostalgia trending at an all-time high, brown lipstick has made its back into our hearts and on our lips. I can’t say the same for certain ’90s hairstyles, but this lip is hip. Get inspired by the flawless faces of the following women and be sure to check out these warm shades of brown lipstick that you need in your purse. Stock up ASAP!
