Red lipstick is a classic color that every woman should have in her collection, no matter how small it may be. And while there are tons of options out there, the stigma of loud lipstick on brown skin being unflattering can often sway brown beauties from embracing the perfect rouge for her pout. Now, I don’t know WHO started this lie, but contrary to popular belief, melanated women can wear any color they want!
Red lipstick comes in so many shades, why limit yourself. There’s a color for every undertone, mood, season, YOU NAME IT! Take a look at some of my favs:

I’m a 30-something, fun loving blogger who enjoys makeup, plus size fashion, and all things girly, glam, and fabulous! I am a naturalista as well as an advocate for paleo eating (AIP). While much of my focus is on beauty, I will be chronicling my weight loss and diet, as well as my natural hair journey. I hope that I can inspire women to give themselves some TLC. Life is so fleeting. We have to remember to take time to enjoy it.
