Kiss me 'cus its Spring time!

Hi beauties,
This spring its all about bright lip colours. Now again some of you make say you can't pull off a bright lip colour but its all about finding the right shade for your skin tone.

One of the hottest lip colours this spring is orange. Don't get scared just yet because orange is one of the most attractive colours on women of colour. You just need to go out and find your shade. For top picks there are
MAC Morange
Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense in 40 ($19 at
Revlon MD Orange Flip ($7 at or
NYX Cosmetics Diamond Sparkle Lipstick in Orange ($5 at
Milani lipcolour in Orange Gina ($3.49 at or or
Stila Lipglaze Stick in Orange ($4.99 at
MAC Morange
For those who are skeptical you can start out with a sheer gloss like MAC Tinted lip conditioner in Gentle Coral. Its one of my favourite glosses and it happens to be orangey sort of coral but it goes on very sheer.

I found my perfect shade of orange from The power of plants Botanics in 60. It has a reddish undertone which works well with my complexion. Oh and the orange nail polish is from NYC cosmetics.

Another hot colour for lips this spring of course is fuchsia. This again is a perfect lip shade for women of colour as long as they find their shade. I tend to stick to fuchsia lip colours with a blue base meaning it has a bluish undertone when you look at it. My favourite fuchsia lipstick of the moment is NYC 405B which you can find pretty much at any drugstore or walmart.

  1. I've been wanting to try orange. When I went to purchase something from MAC awhile back, a dark-skinned women was there trying one on and it looked amazing! Havne't mustered up the balls to try it yet; took me awhile to try red!
