Every type of complexion comes with its own set of rules. To understand what works for your dark skin, you first need to identify whether your skin is considered light, medium, or dark, as well as whether your skin has warm, neutral or cool undertones. However, there are some universally flattering shades for dark skin and the sooner you work them into your beauty routine, the better! Here are our top tips...
As a general rule: the darker your skin, the brighter your makeup can go. Many bold colors overpower women with lighter skin, so why not show off a little by employing bright shades like orange, purple, gold and fuchsia? Oh and we don't just mean lipstick: consider trying a bold colored eyesliner or mascara!
Again, shimmery and metallic shades that might look garish on light skin, often look amazing against a dark complexion! Add drama to your look with a metallic champagne, gold, or silver eyeshadow, define the eyes with black liner, and then finish your look with black mascara for a seriously enviable look!
Dark complexions can also pull off defying deep lip and cheek shades. Think: bordeaux, raspberry, or even red. The depth of the color suits your skin tone while the richness adds a bright pop of color!
Nude makeup can make a dark complexion look #flawless! But don't go for the typically "nude" shades- more often than not they're designed for light skin tones and will make you look washed out. Instead, opt for shades that look nude on your skin tone!
So, with some of these bold beauty tips in mind, which ones will you try?
