How Stars Rocked The Perfect Red Lip On The Soul Train Awards Red Carpet

See the beauty trends that never goes out of style!

The old notion that red lipstick—the most iconic and versatile shade of all time—isn’t flattering on deep complexions is a beauty myth Black women continue to dispel.

The bold hue is especially stunning on melanin-rich skin and we rounded up photos, featuring celebrities like Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu and more donning rouge lips on the Soul Train Awards red carpet prove it.

The vivid hue makes for a great go-to shade and statement lip, so if you’re looking for either, consider this your sign to give the timeless color a try.
