For a lot of women, spring means switching to lighter textured skin care products and bright color cosmetics. But just like fashion, there are no rules when it comes to makeup. If your face is your canvas, paint what your heart desires.

Each season should be about whatever colors speak to the look you want to achieve, earth tones and deeper hues included. And brown lipstick can look sexy and sophisticated when the color is just right.

We love these nine Black girl approved picks that look complement our various melanin-rich skin tones.
