10 Colours That Look Great On Brown Skin As Inspired By Lupita Nyong'o
As the “United Colours of Lupita” graphic proves, every colour in the rainbow looks good on Lupita Nyong’o. Her 'hue-tiful' looks have won fans all over the world, but they’re especially thrilling for black women like me.
Bold and Blue
Glimmering Gold: We all know gold is glamorous and regal, but Lupita proves it can also be sexy. Throw on leopard accessories and a red lip and you’re good to go.
Typically seen as boring, gray is anything but when jazzed up with silver and cobalt blue accessories.
Green can work for every event on your agenda this Spring. Wear emerald green with flecks of yellow for the office, and bright jade green for a night on the town.
Black skin is naturally radiant but orange picks up our golden undertones and complements a sun-kissed tan.
One of the biggest Spring trends, soft pastel colours look just as beautiful against brown skin as brights do.
Red is the universal colour for fire, passion and sex appeal. Go for the bold in head-to-toe red or add some sex appeal with leopard accessories.
The colour that resembles tropical beaches is perfect for Springtime. Turquoise is a great addition to your wardrobe, whether we’re talking jewelry, gowns, blouses, dresses or even eyeshadow.
Thanks to the sharp contrast, white flatters brown skin like no other. It’s the perfect summer colour for everything from gowns to crop tops.
Don’t be afraid to shine bright in yellow gowns and tops that give your skin a natural glow.
