Welcome to my Q&A corner. This column is dedicated solemnly to you. Here I will answer all of your questions and requests. Let's begin!
Q: Hi I found your blog through your chictopia, great clothes btw and your make up website is amazing, very talented. I love statement lips too but for some reason they just don’t seem to look right on me. I recently bought Nars Jungle Red as I’m mad about poppy red it’s gorgeous but I feel something’s not right with it, I’m dark skinned (African) like a Jourdan Dunn type colour so brights normally suit me in clothes but this looks a bit off my mum said I look like something from the black and white minstrel show, HELP!! Please could you recommend some bright colours that wouldn’t have this effect or do you think it could be the way I apply it, I don’t use lip liner because I don’t know how etc etc please help.. thank you .. sorry i wasn’t too sure where to post this.
Thank you girl!
Leave the black and white minstrel show days behind, the secret in choosing a red lip color that will compliment your skin complexion is in the…… are you ready for this….. is in the undertones Everybody can wear red lipstick you just need to find which undertone works best for you!
