Makeup should always make you look and feel like your best self, but that’s hard to do when options are limited and you can’t find your perfect shade. Thanks to a wide range of colors and formulas in my line, women of all skin tones can find makeup that is flattering and beautiful. That’s very important to me. I recently spoke to global mega blogger, The Blonde Salad and shared a few key tips on achieving the most flattering looks for darker skin tones.
A must-have product for dark skin tones
Selecting the right foundation is tricky, but my Skin Foundation Stick is great because it’s easy to apply and blends flawlessly into your skin — plus there are 31 shades to choose from. Just be sure to test it on different parts of your face (try your forehead and between your nose and cheek) in natural light to ensure the color is right.
Experiment with color
Many women believe their skin tone limits the makeup shades they can wear, but that’s really not true. Try playing with unexpected bold shades, dark colors, and even pastels. There are so many different varieties to try you may discover new favorites that complement your skin and look fantastic.
Yes, everyone can strobe
If a shimmery highlighter feels like too much on darker skin tones, try mixing it with bronzer. The ideal result should be a natural glow — not sparkle overload — on the tops of cheekbones, forehead, and the bridge of the nose.
