A$AP Rocky blasted for giving lipstick advice
Rocker A$AP Rocky is raising eyebrows today after recent comments he made about a shade of lipstick. The self professed ‘pretty motherf—-‘ recently sat down with The Coveteur. When they asked the style guru about his thoughts on women’s makeup, he didn’t hold back. After admitting that he prefers women au naturale, the rapper went on a rant about darker skinned women wearing red lipstick.
“But for real, for me, I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the complexion. I’m just being for real,” said the Harlem rapper. “You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—f—- for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls can’t do… Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the f—-…”
Prior to dissing millions of brown girls who not only rock red lipstick but listen to his records, A$AP dished on his own
aesthetic routine that includes using witch hazel because, “you’ve got to exfoliate, you know?”
Unfortunately for A$AP his recent beauty advice was completely misguided and has left more than a few fans up in arms.
As a dark skin woman, I really wish A$AP ROCKY would tell me that I shouldn’t wear red lipstick. twitter.com/___LoveFola/st…

Like several of A$AP’s female devotees, this writer couldn’t agree less with his close minded makeup opinion. A crimson colored pout in the correct shade can be flattering to any woman of any tone.
Below are just a few examples of celebrity women who are not fair skinned and have already debunked A$AP Rocky’s red lipstick misinformation.
