Here are some epic lip shades that would amazing on dark skin tones

Honestly, you don’t even need to hit the textbooks of history to know that the beauty biz has been unfair with the melanin-rich women. It began with beauty remedies to ‘brighten’ and then went on to have foundations and concealers only for the pale and wheatish. As one would imagine, things weren’t quite different for colour cosmetics too. Luckily, beauty brands are started being inclusive. New shades are included and the colour spectrum is getting wider. While this may be great for the dark skinned makeup lover, it isn’t so much for the makeup newbie. So if you’re dark skin toned beauty, and looking for new lipsticks shade to add to your kitty, ahead are some choices.
