When Jessica Pettway posts a video, we take notice. Every brown girl should have a a vampy lip in her makeup arsenal. If you're not a fan of the dark blue hues that are becoming increasingly popular, then we suggest you try a plum hue in place of your usual red or nude lip.
For a similar look, we recommend BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayonin "Truffle", $24 at Sephora
