The Brown Girl’s Guide to Lip Gloss: Part 1


Lip GlossWe’ve all been there. We have scoured make-up stores, racks and counters trying to find colors that work for us. We have asked friends (and sometimes strangers) what type of lip gloss they wear. And once we find one we like, we stick to it because we know that it may take a long time for us to find another one we like. Just for you, we’ve created a Brown Girl’s Guide to Lip Gloss. We have searched makeup counters far and wide to give you some options of what colors are flattering to those of us with darker hues.  Part 1 of the guide includes colors from the purple and brown families.
