When choosing the perfect lipstick shades for black women you should always have in mind your complexion. Moreover, your skin’s undertones are also to be taken into account because they can have a great influence over certain lipstick shades.

Lipstick Shades for Black Women

We’ve gathered some of the best lipstick shades for black women available at the moment on the market. Check them out and see what’s your favorite when it comes to lipsticks for dark skin tones.

Nude Lipsticks for Black Women

Nude lipstick for black women is a total DO as neutral shades compliment perfectly a dark skin tone. You can accompany a beautiful smokey eye look with nude lip and this way you’ll focus the entire attention on your beautiful and big eyes. However, not all nude shades work for all skin tones. For example, for those of you with golden skin (think of Beyonce Knowles), we’d like to suggest two nude lipsticks for black women that we love: Bobbi Brown in Brownie ($25) and MAC Lipstick in Fresh Brew ($15).

We love these products: NARS Lipstick in Jungle Red, NARS Transeurope Express and NARS Joyous Red (all of them $26), MAC Lip Glass in Rich Bounty ($20) and MAC Lip Glass in Factory Made ($20).

Pink Lipstick for Black Women

Who said African American ladies can’t flaunt a beautiful pink lip? They can and they look simply gorgeous! And there are a lot of shades of pink lipstick for black women available. For those of you with a lighter skin tone, we’d recommend choosing a pale to deep pink lipstick. However, if your skin is medium toned, you’ll never go wrong with a deep pink. In the end, if you rock a dark skin, we’d suggest fuchsia when it comes to the best pink lipstick for black women option.
