Hope this tutorial shows you a few things!
1. You CAN wear a nude lip even with darker skin
2. Liquid lipstick can be scary, but if blended in right, it can create an amazing long lasting lip color
3. Using a gloss over the liquid lipstick helps reduce dryness
4. An "ombre lip" doesn't need to feel like a dramatic shift of color - it can be subtle when blended in properly
