You know how people say all shades of red lipstick fit black women, I don't think that's true.
Sometimes you see black women in red lipsticks and your first thought is "what were you thinking?" This mistake stems from the fashion myth that everything goes well with black, especially red. Do not forget that black has different shades and so does red. I remember watching "Good Times," a show from the 1970s, and most of the time, the black ladies wore red lipsticks that made them look like they just had a sip their kids' black currant drink. It did not look flattering at all. Then I tell myself that wearing those shades of red were a fashion trend that would not repeat itself again. But no! As long as a black girl enters a cosmetic store with the belief that "red fits black," the mistake will continue. Black women should sample different shades of red lipsticks before settling for their choices. You want to avoid stares that are uncalled for, right?
