First off if you have full lips, the heavens have smiled on you! That is one coveted feature that hundreds of thousands of women are now going under the needle to achieve.If you rock the right colours for your skin tone especially with fuller lips, you will have fantastic results.
At the end of the day, lipsticks and colours are relative. These guidelines are very general and will work for most people but it’s always good to try colours that you think are out of your ‘Skin Tone Zone’, I promise you will be surprised 😉
1. Dark – If your skin is dark and rich, try these shades:
–Golden beige colours and chocolate brown nudes look great on dark skin with cool undertones. The good thing about full lips is they only need a bit of moisture or shine to stand out. Flesh coloured tones in dark brown will work well for you. Wet n Wild Mochalicious, Ravin’ Raisin, Spiked with rum, Sugar plum fairy, cinnamon spice are all great examples. Also L’Oreal colour riche Captivating Copper, Plum Twist, Milla’s Plum are great options.
Useful Tip: Use a pencil liner which a shade or two darker than your lipstick to line your lips. Remember to blend!
Geraldine of Geraldine The Great is one of my favourite natural bloggers. She’s dark skin toned and her lips are full so her styel tips will come in handy. She is fond of dark pink nude colours which are kept in place with a dark liner.

This gorgeous MUA even tried gothic makeup for size. Are you loving the black lips?
Like I’ve said, it’s all about trying new colour. Natalie looks great in this lippy called DGAF by Melt Cosmetics, no?
Eugena Washington is dark skinned girl with a full pout. She keeps her makeup minimal and her favourite colours are chocolate brown and dark brown colours. Gorgeous!
Other colours such as magenta, deep red, pink or fuchsia will look great on dark skin. Nyasha Matonhodze is a dark beauty with full lips and she looks great in all these shades.
Supermodel, Ajak Deng’s skin is rich and dark and she has the luscious lips ever. She’s tried on tonnes of lip colours and they look fantastic on her!
2. For medium-toned women, look into these lipstick colours:
Medium to deep pink
Jill Marie Jones is one gorgeous lady will full lips. And she’s working just the right shades for skin tone. Notice how she uses a liner most times.
Kerry Washington has a medium skin tone with full lips. Her makeup game is top notch. From blush tones, to bright reds to pink she wears it well.
3. Light: If your skin falls into the lighter range of African American skin tones, these colours will look good on you:
Pale to deep pink
Gina Torres is light skinned so peach, pale pink and red will be her go to colours.
