Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist and today I'm going to show you pink lip glosses for dark skin tones. So when you're choosing pink lip glosses for dark skin tones, you can either choose a pink lip gloss that has a little bit of a warm undertone, or better yet, one of my favorite things to do is actually use a brown lip liner to warm that lip gloss so that it works well with a dark skin tone. So on Angelina today I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss in Blush. So, before I apply my pink lip gloss I'm choosing kind of like a light frosty pink which you wouldn't actually ever think on darker skin tones, but you can actually make it wearable just by using a darker lip liner. We're choosing a medium brown lip liner. You basically want a color a few shades darker than your natural skin tone. And you could see without any makeup on, you could see the natural lip line. So whatever your natural lip line color is, just choose a color that's a couple shades darker. Just going to add a few strokes in the center of the mouth just so that it doesn't like it's really dark on the outside and pale on the inside. Now we're going to take that lip gloss and apply it on top of our lip liner. And you could actually apply it directly on. As you can see on my skin it looks really pale and frosty. You wouldn't think that's really wearable, but on top of that lip liner it's a nice dark color. Looks very wearable. It actually looks really pretty. So darker skin can wear pretty much any color. You want to look for colors that are a little bit warmer if possible and if you don't just use a lip liner a few shades darker than your natural skin tone and it'll make all the lip colors more wearable. What liner does is it really adds definition that way you don't lose the definition in the mouth that sometimes can happen from wearing lighter lip colors. Just going to add a little bit in the center. So as you can see, we finished Angelina's beautiful lips and that light frosty pink is actually very wearable. Just by adding that warm dark lip liner underneath and just applying that light pink frost on top makes it very wearable and it creates a really beautiful, luscious, neutral lip. So there you go. That's how you choose pink lip glosses for dark skin tones. I'm Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
