Makeup Tips For Dark Skin

It can be confusing to choose the right kind of makeup for dark skin. Follow these simple tips to know the right shades and tricks for your skin.

The foundation/concealer that you choose should have a water base. You go for colors like tan, sun-kissed bronze and peach.

Avoid applying too much powder as you can end up looking purdy. Instead go for a bronzer. Make sure you blend it well so that it doesn’t settle in the lines.

You can go for eyeshadow shades like purple, brown, burgundy, copper and blue. Apply a single shade over your eyelids as multiple shades can look messy.

Avoid using eyeliner but if you want you use a kohl pencil to line your upper and lower lids. Make sure the kohl is smudge free and waterproof. Just apply a thin line with it.

Go for clear mascara instead of the usual jet black or the brown one. Apply 2 coats of it. It will add length and volume.

When it comes to lipsticks, avoid frosty colors. Instead, choose colors like plum, maroon, coffee and berry shaded one. Avoid matte lipstick as they can make your lips look lifeless and dry. Go for cream based lipstick. You can also apply glosses over your lipstick to add an “oomph” factor.

While applying blushes, opt for shades like golden, light pink, cherry, crimson and deep purple. They work well with dark skin.

These tips would surely make you look like an ultimate diva!
