Whether you’re looking to pull off an orange shade or wanting to try that vampy look for so long, here are some lipstick shade suggestions for you. Check ‘em out below:
NEUTRALS: Everyone knows that a nude or neutral shade is a versatile hue that almost anyone can pull it off. It’s the ultimate go-to shade when you’re attending events that require a smokey eye or a sexy party dress. But when you’re a dark skinned beauty, opt for neutral colors that are a shade darker than your lips. Try this M.A.C. Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in "Morning Coffee".

VAMPY PLUM: Want to pull off a dark, vampy look? Go for creamy or satin lipsticks that are boderline black and that has a hint of red undertones. Swipe on this Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in "Vivid Violet" for that sultry and mesmerizing look.
