hello damsels!

happy national lipstick day! ūüíĄ

Do you struggle¬†with finding the perfect shade of lipstick?¬†I learned the hard way,¬†I was having trouble finding the right shade because I was too apprehensive when it came to color. I steered clear of highly pigmented lip colors because of my chocolate skin. When I should have¬†just been embracing it! Now that I’ve learned to LOVE LIP COLOR on my chocolate skin, my whole lip game done changed!

Don’t be afraid to experiment with color! Especially if you’re on the more chocolate side. We can have fun with color too! (or no color at all HELLO BLACK LIP!)

Mocha-licious perfect nude lip

Honestly, I have had YEARS of trial and error of mixing & matching shades, wearing just the wrong shade, and resolving to go bare because NOTHING looked just right!

Only my “bare lip” isn’t a bare lip at all. It’s a chocolate thangs nude that I found IN THE GROCERY STORE for only $1.99! Mocha-licious is my go to bare lip.

Listen honey there aint¬†nothing you can’t do with the right support, or in my case lip liner. Including an all black lip! Pictured below in Kat Von D Studded Kiss Cr√®me Lipstick SLAYER – SATIN-MATTE PITCH BLACK.¬†

What are your favorite shades?! Care to share?!

Be bold. Live out loud & as always remember,
