There's a saying, "Life's better in Red Lipstick" and I do have to agree with this. A bold red lipstick is certainly a no brainer and universally-flattering because it works for all skin tones except if you are avatar blue, then blue and red might be not the most flattering combination. So the simplest just get yourself a kick-ass red lipstick and you'll be ready to nail the runway !

Orange lipstick looks great on darker skin as it accentuates and contrast's  perfectly giving you a bold look. Burnt orange Is my favorite.

Purple lips will certainly make you stand out among the crowd. You can go for deep or bright purple, it will work like a dream for when your feeling daring. In fact, I personally think you need to have a nice tan minimum to pull off  purple lips!
Recommendation : MAC Matte Lipstick (Heroine)

If you have darker skin, don't shy away from wearing pink, because getting the right pink shade will complement your complexion even more. Go for a rich plum pink shade, it will stand out brilliantly without the vibe that you are trying too hard.
What we like  : Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Plum Velour)

Deep Berry Red
On light skin tones, this shade would look too vampy like you are prepping for Halloween or literally poisoned. But for darker skin, this shade is deep enough to accentuate all your features. Also a cool undertone Deep Berry Red will make your smile more vibrant too.
What we like  : NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (Monte Carlo - Deep Cranberry)
