Orange Lipstick On Dark Skin
Okay, I admit it. I’m a sucker for lipstick. I love it. In fact, I’d even venture as far as to say I’m obsessed. Fine, are you happy now? I’m obsessed. Matte finish, cream finish, glossy, you name it. I love it. I’d pretty much wear any color on the planet. And right now, I’m all about orange.
I think orange lipsticks can work year round, especially if you’re a girl who likes to go bold. That being said, toning down an orange lippie can be done fairly easily. For women of color, I would suggest using a brown lipliner in your skin shade (Cork or Chestnut in Mac work nicely for me), or a red lip liner (Mac’s Cherry is divine). Red liners can warm up an orange lipstick so it blends better. Personally, I prefer more reddish orange shades. Here are a few of my favorite orange lip sticks on dark skin.

Which color is your favorite?
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
