For a dark complexion:
“Dark skin looks great with wine lips, and they’re less of a dramatic statement than on someone with fairer skin because there’s less of a contrast with skin tone. The best shades are deep red, blackberry, and dark plum,” says Quynh. The browner your skin, the better you look when you use lipstick or gloss with a brown undertone like on Selita Ebanks; on lighter skin, it can come off as too severe. “I use browner berries and truer purples on women with deeper colored skin,” says Bower.
