Dark skinned women often struggle with finding makeup that works for their complexion. They want to find makeup that looks natural and doesn’t look too heavy. In this article, I am going to give you some tips on how to choose makeup for dark skin.
I am going to start off by saying that there is no perfect makeup for everyone. Everyone has different skin tones and needs. However, if you follow these steps, you should be able to find makeup that works for you.
1) Start With a Foundation That Is Right For Your Skin Tone
The first thing you need to do when choosing your foundation is making sure it matches the tone of your skin. If you have very light skin then you will probably not need as much coverage as someone who has darker skin. You can also use concealer under your eyes or around any blemishes before applying your foundation. This helps cover up imperfections so they don’t show through in photos. 2) Choose A Colorful Lipstick
Lips are one of the most important parts of your face because they frame everything else. When choosing a lipstick, go for colors that pop against your skin color. It’s best to avoid matte lipsticks since they tend to dry out lips over time. Instead, opt for glosses that moisturize lips while still looking vibrant.
3) Apply Blush To The Cheeks And Nose
Blushing gives cheeks an instant lift without being obvious. Makeup artists recommend using blush at least two shades lighter than your actual skin tone. Using a bronzer instead of blush adds dimension to your cheekbones.
4) Use Eyeliner On Lids Only
Eyeliners come in many shapes and sizes but only apply them to the upper lid. Dark eyeliner makes eyes appear larger and more dramatic.
5) Add Eye Shadow Or Liners Around Eyes
Eye shadow comes in all sorts of colors and textures. Try experimenting until you find something that suits your eye shape. Adding liner around the outside edges of your eyes draws attention away from bags and wrinkles.
6) Go Over Top Of Face With Bronzing Powder
Bronzers add warmth to the face and make skin glow. Most bronzers contain shimmer which reflects light giving the appearance of having brighter skin.
