Finding makeup for black skin used to be a problem. There is a very wide range of makeup available in every department store you go into but it used to be very difficult to find makeup that was actually suitable for black skin. Certain cosmetic companies have now realized that women of color have needs too and also have money to spend and they have created products accordingly.
Choosing A Foundation
The type of foundation for black skin that you may need for the summer and winter will be different due the differing weather conditions. This will affect your skin and of course everyone tans during the summer so your winter foundation will be too dark. The best solution is to use two foundation products and combine them.
Choosing A Blusher
The best types of blushers that suit darker skin are the bolder colors of red or burgundy. This needs to be applied lightly along the cheekbone in order to emphasis your bone structure. Try not to apply too much otherwise you will end up looking like a painted doll and that is not the look that we are after Makeup for Dark Skin.
Choosing Color For Your Eyes
To emphasis your eyes I would always recommend that you use black eyeliner. This can be a pencil or liquid eyeliner, depending on your skill. If you have a very steady hand the liquid eyeliner will be great and give you a lovely thin line just above your eye lashes. An eye pencil is much easier to apply and I would recommend this for beginners.
Fantastic shades of eye shadows that compliment brown skin are burgundies and plums. Use a small brush and apply this very lightly on your eye socket just above your eye liner application.
Choosing A Lipstick
A great choice in lip color to flatter your blusher and eye shadow is plum or brown or a nice deep red. If you are going to use a lip liner always ensure that it is the same color as your lipstick. They should blend 100%.
