I wanted to let everyone know of a blog that I just started. This tumblr is called radicallippies and I thought it would be a really great forum for dark skinned people to see what bold colors would look like on their skin.
I know sometimes it may be hard for some of us to pick up certain colors, whether its for what you’re gonna wear, what you’re gonna dye your hair or what you’re gonna put on your face, because we get told that people of certain skin tones shouldn’t wear certain things. Translation: you’re too dark (black) for that.
And I know, and I’m sure a lot of other people know, that we can wear those colors. We can wear them better than what we’re told.
Those bright yellows are for us.
Those aqua blues are for us.
So I wanted to start a space where we can combine everything and show and affirm to other people and to ourselves that this, too, is for us.
I wanted this blog to be submission based, so if anyone has pictures they wanna share of themselves, please submit them! If anybody would be kind to reblog this so others can see it, that would be great.
I really think this can be a fun online presence, and I think it can be inspirational if you’re trying to hike up the courage to buy that blue lipstick and wear it in public.
I’m hot, you’re hot, let’s be hot together!
