Lipstick for Brunettes

Brunettes look fabulous in all sorts of lipstick shades, from dreamy, rosy pinks to seductive, statement reds. When I’m working with brunette beauties, I like to reach for rich, nuanced lipstick colours like berries, wines and mauves that look impactful alongside the glossy sheen of brown hair. Discover your new signature shade below – it’ll look flawless with your beautiful, brown locks!

    Darlings, Walk of No Shame suits everyone, everywhere! I created this rosy red as a wonderful, wearable red lipstick that’s more subdued than brighter, statement-making reds, gently enhancing the look of the lips with the dreamiest, rose-tinted berry shade. Walk of No Shame is my empowering, confidence-boosting lipstick and it’s perfect for brunettes that are searching for a magical, just-kissed red that looks particularly flattering with rich mahogany and chestnut tresses.

  2. Brunette model wearing Pillow Talk Medium Matte Revolution lipstick


    Makeup artists, celebrities and beauty lovers everywhere are talking about my Pillow Talk collection, darlings – it’s full of makeup secrets in everyone’s perfect shade! I created Pillow Talk Medium lipstick as a deeper, berry-toned version of my world-famous Pillow Talk lipstick; it’s the sweetest shade of pink and looks fabulous on brown-haired beauties! This plush-feeling matte lipstick perfectly complements the natural shine of brown hair, creating a magical lipstick look that’s universally flattering but looks particularly enchanting on brunettes!

    Tilbury Tip: Darlings, pair Pillow Talk Medium with my matching Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium for well-defined, shapely-looking lips.

  3. Brunette model wearing Stoned Rose Kissing lipstick


    One of my favourite ways to brighten up a makeup look for brunettes is by swiping on my Stoned Rose K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick. Stoned Rose is a glowing coral shade of my moisturising, satin-shine lipstick formula, giving the lips a wave of beachy rose-pink. This flattering shade is more vibrant than a nude and more understated than a statement red or pink, meeting in the middle to give brunettes a tempting coral pop that lifts and enlivens any makeup look. Pair Stoned Rose with my Hot Gossip Lip Cheat to get the pink lipstick look on every brunette’s lips!
