Monochromatic Colors Monochromatic Colors
Over the last several weeks, I have been possessed with finding the right pink and red lipstick hues for me. I have scoured countless other blogs, Pinterest, and stores for my go-to shade. I am finding I am not as fortunate to be able to wear some of these fuchsias and pinks as I would like to. One of the first things I have realized, my skin is not as fair-skinned as I once believed. I am in the true brown-girl hue family with the likes of such famous ladies like Gabrielle Union and Keshia Knight-Pulliam.
Cameras and lenses gave me a false sense of what hues really worked for me. Instagram and those darn filters gave me a false representation of what colors truly worked for my deep brown hue. I have found that strong magenta, pink, and red are better fitted for my complexion. Whereas, bright, neon colors do not work for me. They make me appear washed out regardless if my foundation is flawless or nah!
After spending countless hours researching, hundreds of dollars, buying, and testing different colors, I have finally found my favorite shades: 1) MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up, 2) MAC Maleficent Collection Amplified True Love’s Kiss, and 3) MAC Mineralize Rich Bold Spring. These each are great singular or blended together for a magnificent finish. I found MAC to be the easiest to apply and last throughout the day of drinking tea and eating lunch. I love vibrant colors that allow me to exude the confidence that resides within. It’s a great little pick me up for any boring work ensemble.
