Essential Tips On How Darker Skin Girls Should Apply Makeup

There are dark skin Ladies and there are darker skin ladies, an example is our beautiful Nigerian Actress Beverly Naya.


Being dark skinned can be great, finding the right makeup for your skin tone can be a hurdle.

When a professional MUA Does your face beat, you look all dolled up and beautiful, but when it’s time to do it yourself, knowing what makeup would work for you takes some serious trial and error.

You first need to get the right shade of foundation or the eye shadow that would capture the essence of your eyes.

While makeup is meant to enhance your features you could make a mistake and then it would make you look like a muddled up pie.

Nobody wants to look like they fell into muddy water; therefore I believe brining you a few tips on how to apply your makeup correctly would be best for you;

  1. While priming is the layering of all makeup application, the foundation is the beginning (that’s why it’s called foundation). While you are out getting a product make sure that it goes with your skin tone or it’s a shade lighter… Also note whether itwould work with your skin depending on whether you have an oily or dry skin.
  2. Bright colours will go well with your dark skin, provided you blend it correctly. Remember to always use a natural/neutral toned eye shadow as your base color, and for your top coat, go for colors that complement each.
  3. Blush is supposed to make your cheeks perfect and help with your smile “effect” but did you know that a bronzer can serve as your blush. It’s actually perfect as it would give your cheek bone definition
  4. Bright lip colors work for darker skinned girls but colors in neutral like mahogany brown, bronze work very well too. Stick to the warmer colors like chocolate brown and deep orange for an everyday look but nothing stops you from wearing a purple lippie with a pink undertone.


I do hope this Essential Tips On How Darker Skin Girls Should Apply Makeup, helps you alot,
