Get some tips on Lips Makeup for Dark Indian skin/women. We cover the appropriate colours of lipsticks to use and the ones to not use. It’s a simple Indian makeup tutorial to follow and one of the best on lipstick application.
Tip 1: Stay Away from Contrasting Colours
Stay away from colours llike pale nudes. They’ll make you look sick and pale because they just go with the skin you have. If you still want to apply the nude lipsticks, use the ones that are closest to your skin tone from the brown to orange range of colours.They will make you look more natural if that’s the effect you want.
The best lipstick colours are plums, deep reds and wines
Tip 2: Foundation will help
Try applying some foundation on your lip before you apply lipstick. Apply just one layer like you do for your skin. This is best for application of bright colours and dulls them a little.
Foundation helps your lipstick last very long. If you don’t have foundation, you can use lip primer or concealer.
Tip 3: Burgundy
Burgundy Lipsticks should be your default. It is a part of Indian women makeup kits worldwide. For darker skin, it’s especially beautiful because it is close to your natural lip tone. You can use burgundy everyday and you’ll still look good.

Tip 4: Bright Red for Glamour
If you’re going for parties or weddings, you can pop things up with some red. Red shades go well with your skin. For daytime makeup, try bright fire red and for nights, use neutral reds.
Tip 5: No Pale or Glossy Lipsticks
We’re saying this again. Nude colours work well for blush and eyeshadow for Dark Skinned Indian women but not for lipsticks. They will make you look very dull and boring. Also avoid glossy, shimmering and frosting colours.
