Bold Beautiful Summer Make-up Colors – Glorious Green
Green is Always Good!
Like dandruff or other annoying human afflictions, random rappers and hip hop performers seem to come out of the woodwork every few months without fail with some ignorant or insulting remark about black womens appearances. Since they are too many to list here, let’s just share a word about the last brilliant “bon mots” offered by ASAP Rocky that dark-skinned black women should not wear red lip stick. This craziness has been just driving us BANANAS!
Of course we could just say he doesn’t know what he is talking about, which is true. that too. And in addition we offer our take on bright pastel colors and dark skin with great pictures!
A matte face and a nude lip can easily use a pop of color on the eyes and why not choose a bright blue or green eye shadow. Dark skin can carry these colors brilliantly. The only time one moves into the danger zone is when you combine a bright eye, lip and cheek at once. But we’re no make up experts, for that please check Megz, Make-up Doll, Tierre Monet or BeautyByJJ. These ladies can give you all the info you need to do bright pastels right for Summer!
As for shooting dark skin in al it’s vibrancy, veteran photographer Ernest Collins brings to life the amazing lush images below.
