10 Makeup Tips for African-American Skin

  

8. Lipliner Should Be Incognito

Popular among junior high girls that just purchased their first makeup kit, the black lipliner and red or pink lipstick combination is a big makeup no-no. A lipliner should never be noticeable, much less a focal point of your makeup look.

Instead, choose a shade that closely matches your own lip color and carefully outline and fill in your lips. This allows your liner to do its job – keeping your lipstick from feathering and bleeding – without calling attention to itself.
