Hi, my name is Nancy Paterra. I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles, California. Our question is what lip colors enhance dark lips? Well it's really nice because basically anything bright will enhance a dark lip. Pink, red, soft pink, coral, any of these colors will enhance a darker lip. So I've chosen this coral color right here to give brightness and attention to the mouth. All you need is a lip brush and you are good to go. This color it's kind of a balance between red and almost a little bit of a pinkie in it too. It's like a pinkie red coral. I know that sounds unusual but you'll see when I put it on. Just go right on to the mouth. You can see it's soft color. So really when working with any kind of darker mouth you can use bright tones to really lift and brighten up the face. You can also use the deeper shades if you want to keep it more neutral. Or go into the beige family which is going to keep it even more neutral. But you can really play with the whole palette of bright, medium bright, dark, really rich darks. And really see you know play around and see what works for you. You know there really are no rules so experiment and have fun with it. Thank you.
