Vicki Shares Her Best Lipstick Colours for Black Brides

You know what I love most about makeup?  It’s how the right shade and texture can make such a difference to the way a woman looks and even feels about herself.  We were all created differently and thanks to the wonders of makeup we can all look uniquely beautiful when we use the right colours to enhance our natural beauty.  When I’m doing makeup on any bride my first and foremost goal is to give her a naturally beautiful look – not a nightclub look – but a classic pretty look that says “Here comes the Bride!”

As you all know my pro makeup kit (will have to take a picture of it someday and share with you all!) is packed full of products that I know work on my various clients skin tones and skin textures.  I have several palettes dedicated to specific skin colours and makeup preferences that I’ve gathered over the years.  Today I’m sharing with you my ‘go to’ lipstick shades – the ones I use on my black brides and in particular for my black brides looking for a natural/nude pretty look.

So let’s start with….

Black brides with a light skin tone:

  1. Maybelline in Totally Toffee (a great nude option)
  2. MAC Kind’a Sexy (another great option)
  3. Bobbi Brown in Raisin Berry (a nude colour with a bit of a red kick yet very understated)

Black brides with a medium skin tone:

  1. Sephora Collection #37 in Sweet Dreams (rosy brown with a pretty glossy finish)
  2. MAC Twig (muted brownish pink — its not a cult classic for nothing!) 🙂
  3. MAC Freckletone (perfect for green/olive undertone)
  4. Lancome rouge in love in Cocoa Couture (a beautiful brownish red for those brides looking for a bit more colour)

Black brides with a deeper skin tone:

  1. MAC Dare You (deep reddish brown)
  2. MAC Velvet Teddy (a dark brown nude, matte finish so make sure your lips are in great shape!)
  3. MAC Dark Side (a deep burgundy gorgeous colour!)
  4. Chanel Rouge Allure in #109 Rouge Noir (dark burgundy that is pure sexiness!)
