We don’t think we stand alone when we say that the beauty industry can be quite forgetful of dark-skinned women. Today, we want to share with you some important makeup tips that, we think, every dark-skinned lady should know when looking for the right makeup.
More often than not, dark-skinned women tend to have an uneven skin tone. They have darker forehead and lighter centre, so, to get flawless-looking skin, we often have to play with few shades of foundation, if we want to get the most natural of looks.
The thing to remember, when applying foundation, is that we want to create a seamless finish and gradual transition between the lighter part of the face (which is, usually, the centre) and darker parts of complexion (which are, usually, the forehead and perimeter).
Dark-skinned ladies need to STAY AWAY from contrasting colours, such as pale nudes, for example! Unless you’re trying to look sick, there is, definitely, no reason why somebody with really dark skin tone should wear light nudes on the lips.
If you still want to go for a nude lip tone, make sure you chose the colour that is close to your skin tone, which can be brownish shade and, sometimes, even an orangy one; these tones will make you look more natural!
Deep shades of lipstick, such as plums, wines and deep reds are the best colours for dark-skinned girls. One tone that I find particularly amazing on dark skin is Rebel lipstick by Mac! It’s a medium-toned plum with a satin finish and I think, this is what adds up to its elegance!
The majority of dark-skinned ladies have either dark brown or hazel eyes, therefore, the best colours that complement those tones would be deep shades of purple (it does look great on dark-skinned girls!)
Luckily, ladies with dark skin can amazingly pull off lovely golden and bronze tones as well, and, even, turn these tones from a natural day time look into a seductive and elegant night time one, it will always look gorgeous!
