Finding the perfect brown lipstick as a dark-skinned lady can sometimes be very tricky. Even more difficult is determining the undertone of the colour so that you are able to tell if it will sit nicely against your skin or wash you out and make you look grey.

According to Nhu Le CEO of Finding Ferdinand,  a lipstick company, the best way to determine your undertone is to look at the veins on your wrists:  Blue veins indicate a cool undertone, and green veins indicate a warm undertone. It is recommended that those with cooler undertones experiment more with bright pops of colour reds and bright oranges and corals as those would blend with their skin tone, and those with a warmer undertone, a variety of deep browns and burgundies.

Being as experimental as possible to find your signature style is always your best bet, but sometimes, you are not up for all the stress and you want something that will look beautiful on a diverse range of dark skin tones. if you are in the market for one of this one-for-all- dark-skin products, you definitely want to check out our top 3selectionn of   top 3 brown lippies for any dark skin.
