Red Lipstick Makeup Tutorial: Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom

coloured raine cherry blossom

I have always admired a bold red lipstick paired with the perfect look.  I was told all the time growing up, and even as an adult, that red lipstick just wasn’t for me—it was for light skinned girls.  Girls like me should stick to colors like purple, but never red.  I’ll admit it got to me, I never really felt comfortable with most reds and certainly not without a liner.  This makeup tutorial shows my new found, perfect red lipstick makeup look for dark skin! It is super easy, and WOC friendly, so I hope you all enjoy 🙂

L’OREAL AMBER RUSH MAKEUP LOOK

makeup tutorial for black women

I filmed a nude makeup look using one of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow products, L’OREAL Amber Rush.  I picked the shadow out and fell in love with it immediately, and the entire look sort of developed around this shade! I love the formula, it is so buttery and pigmented, and it is a gorgeous wearable neutral shimmer for a wide range of skin tones.  I can honestly say I have never seen Amber Rush look bad on anyone!

MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION TUTORIAL

MAKEUP TUTORIAL FOR BLACK WOMEN

Makeup transformation videos are always some of the most satisfying to watch.  There is nothing like watching a full face makeup look come together before your very eyes, and seeing the power of makeup up close.  More importantly, I think these videos are important because they help us see the beauty in the uniqueness of our own features.  Interestingly, getting into makeup really helped me learn to appreciate my natural beauty even more, and so I wanted to share this with all of you.  Want to see my bare face?

Work, work, work, work, work, work! I loved that song when it came out, but I think I loved her looks in the videos even more.  I decided to film this tutorial on the look inspired by the second video (the one where she is in the pink/purple room with Drake).  I have all the products I used listed, and if you want to see how to achieve this look be sure to check out the tutorial below!
