My friend Karyn is founder of For Brown Girls
and she started an awesome movement called the #DarkSkinRedLip Project
to highlight the beauty of brown girls of all shades rocking red lipstick.
There's a stigmatism in the Black community about women of darker complexions wearing red lipstick and the movement was started to make a statement and prove that brown girls can rock a red lip too and we look awesome doing it!
I love the concept of this movement and I definitely wanted to show my support by submitting a photo of myself rocking a red lip. I'm rocking MAC's RiRi Woo and I think this is a gorgeous shade of red for women of color.
I didn't need a lipliner or anything! In the future, I'll be doing a list of red lippies that I think are awesome for women of color and share some of the red lippies I have in my personal stash.
In the meantime, please go support this awesome movement and submit a photo of yourself rocking your favorite red lip to be featured on the site. Be sure to follow the guidelines
before submitting your photo.
When you post your photos to Twitter, Instagram, etc., don't forget to use the hashtag: #DarkSkinRedLip.
