Celebrity Makeup Artists Love These 10 Lipsticks for Dark Skin Tones



Fall calls for leather jackets, cozy sweaters, booties, and new lipstick, of course. We're proponents of rocking bright, summery shades all year long—do you, girl. But we also get excited about pulling out shades we've been hoarding particularly for fall. Think deep berry, warm brown, and sultry red shades. As a brown girl, I've always loved rocking deeper lip shades because they bring out the golden tones of my complexion so perfectly.

We reached out to two makeup artists who work with some our favorite women in Hollywood. Taraji P. Henson's makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, filled us in on the fall lipsticks she reaches for during every season of hit TV show Empire. HBO's Insecure actress Yvonne Orji's makeup artist, Camara Aunique, also gave us the lowdown on her go-to shades for women of color.

Brown-skinned beauties, Aunique wants you to stop shying away from color. "Brown girls should follow their heart and be confident enough to try bold colors," she expressed. "Don't be afraid to try a bright pink, purple, or any color that might look beautiful on you. You’ll never know if you don’t try."
