Valentine's Day Red: Dorcas from Curious About My Curls

Meet Dorcas from Curious About My Curls
Wearing Sephora cream lipstain in shade 01

Tell me about your youtube channel?My channel is called Curious About My Curls and it focuses on natural hair. I use it as a place to share my tips and tricks that need further explanation past my Instagram page - which is my main and most frequently updated platform (@Curious_Curls).

What are some tips to finding the perfect red or pink lip?Give everything a try. The beauty of women of colour is that we come in all shades and undertones so what may work for one person may not work for another. Try it out, don't be scared & keep a lip liner handy. A lip liner, especially one close to your skin town can make a colour that doesn't quite work look fab!

What is your favourite-

Low end red -
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick - Kate Moss collection in shade 01

High end pink -

Any advice on how to confidently sport a new lip colour?
Try it out at home first a few time so you're used to it before sporting it out the door.

Do you have a favourite WOC red or pink lipstick moment?
When it comes to a bold red or pink lip, Rihanna does it extremely well. Her collaboration with MAC for the release of Riri Woo would have to be my favourite lipstick moment. The campaign shots were stunning not just because of the product but because you can feel her attitude and confidence.

Tell me about your blog? -
My blog is a beauty blog aimed at WOC interested in affordable make-up as make-up for WOC in the UK is limited. I post product reviews and swatches as well as some videos here and there all aimed at WOC interested in beauty.

What are some tips to finding the perfect red or pink lip?
I think one of my tips for red lipstick is to opt for a blue based red (true vibrant red) as this type of red works well on all skin tones, for pink lipsticks my tip would be to always pair a pink lipstick with a purple/plum lip liner. This creates a flattering ombre effect.

Favourite High End Red -
Ruby Woo as this was my first ever red lipstick

Low End Red - Colourpop LAX Ultra Matte

High End Pink - OCC Anime Lip Tar

Low End Pink - Sleek Mystic Lipstick



Any advice on how to confidently sport a new lip colour?
My tip to sporting a new lip colour is to keep the rest of your make-up simple and make your new lip colour the statement.

Any advice on how to confidently sport a new lip colour? 
My advice would be for you to find a shade that flatters your skin tone by looking at beauty blogs and visiting makeup counters, then test out your selected shade around the house to see how you like it throughout the day.  Also, if you are new to wearing color, try a gloss or light lipstain first so that you get accustomed to seeing yourself with a different look.  

Do you have a favourite WOC red or pink lipstick moment?
Janelle MonĂ¡e's signature red lipstick moments are all my favorites. 
She's amazing and her lipstick choices are always on point.

Valentine's Day Red Lips

I love this lip color because I asked Drew Barrymore what colour would she choose for me and she chose Rosebud! Coincidentally, it was in my gift bag.

It's the perfect red for every skin tone.
Plus it would be an amazing bridal or Valentine's day colour!
