Certain lipstick shades are forever in fashion. The classic fire truck red. Gothic black. Sweet pink. Pink is a universally flattering color, but for a long time, it was believed that black women could either not wear it at all or that black women darker than certain shades shouldn’t even attempt it.
But as time as shown, everything we thought we knew is a lie and black women can wear just about everything. Regardless, pink is a tricky shade of lipstick and should be worn with some guidance.
The easiest way is to follow the shade principle: the lighter your skin, the brighter the shade of pink you should wear.
A safe option is using a dark lip liner to ‘fade’ the pink if you’re a darker shade
Or you can damn it all to heck and wear what you like because it is your life and no one will beat you
