ASAP Rocky says that dark skinned women can’t rock a red lip. Submit a picture of you rocking your favorite red lip to email@example.com!
“But for real, for me, I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—f*cking for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant do… Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the f*ck…” - ASAP Rocky in an interview with fashion website, The Coverteur
Granted, it is usually best to pay no mind to ignorance but I think it’s time to put an end to this stigma once and for all. Lets create the largest collection of brown/darker skinned women wearing a red lip along with the shade and brand they are rocking. There, a darker skinned girl hesitant to try it will find confidence to step out of her comfort zone. She may also find suggestions on with shade she should try that will fit her complexion.
Ignorant males will also be silenced to see so many beautiful dark complexioned women rocking their reds!
