Lip and Blush Colors for Yellow Undertones and Dark Skin Colors

What are good Lip and Blush Colors for Dark Skin women with Yellow undertones? I also have off-black hair and brown eyes, typically I use Ruby Woo Matte from Mac because thats one of the only colors that looks good on my skin. I have been afraid to use a creamy lip stick because I am afraid it won't show up as well. I also just started using Vino lipstick from Victoria secret and I fell in love with it. I just want to be able to use fun colors that show up well. Blush I use only one, I just need help matching them with my skin!

Hi Chiamaka,

 

I also would recommend any of the blushes by Illamasqua. They are so pigmented that you can even wear the light colors without them appearing grey on the skin. The color Excite is great for a coral and Beg would also be a really subtle option.Illamasqua - Powder BlusherIllamasqua - Powder Blusher

You'll look stunning!

Hi Chiamaka.  There are a lot of shades that look great on deeper skin tones. Nars has some very flattering blush colors.

For lips, it sounds like you prefer a bit more color so I would choose deeper or jewel toned shades.
