Many women, especially morenas, are intimidated by wearing bold lipstick colors. They need to match perfectly with the wearer’s skin tone to look just right, and morenas, whose skin can range from sun-kissed tan to coppery brown, can find looking for the perfect lipstick shade a chore.
L’Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris comes to the rescue by introducing four shades of lippies in bold, matte colors that look perfect on dusky beauties.
CLASSIC RED: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Reds in Pure Rouge
Red is a classic lip color that morenas can easily rock because of their warm-toned skin color. The deep red shade of Pure Rouge helps accentuate the radiance of golden undertones in the skin. Applied in bold, it can instantly glam up one’s look, whether for a day at work or a night out with friends.
For a red lip that lasts all day, set your lipstick by blotting it with tissue, applying a layer of powder, and then reapplying the shade.This ensures that the lipstick will stay on all day, even with meals and drinks in between.
PRETTY IN PINK: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte in Red Valentine
Red Valentine is a perfect pink for warm-toned beauties. A rich, reddish-pink shade, it flatters morenas by bringing out a subtle rosy glow in their complexions. Complete the look with a blush in the same shade for a healthy, flushed look.
HOT ORANGE: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Reds in Pure Fire
Spell out brave with Pure Fire, a wearable orange that is sure to be the focus of your whole look. Before you run away in panic about wearing such an eye-catching shade, be assured: this shade of orange will look stunning on warm- and medium-toned complexions!
For everyday wear, keep the look simple by applying some BB cream, grooming your eyebrows, and wearing a hint of mascara. There’s no need to overdo it: that rich orange lippie is all the color you need.
SULTRY MAUVE: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte in Glamor Fuchsia
The perfect color for the olive-toned morena: Glamor Fuchsia, a purplish pink shade that tanned women can easily pull off.
For an evening look, this is best paired with smoky eyes, in soft layers of brown, gray, or black eye shadow. Give the look some definition by lining your eyes with liquid liner, or build more intensity with a sweep of gel liner.
