Gold Makeup for African American Women
Whether you have a coffee-and-cream complexion (think Halle Berry and Rihanna ) or one that's a deliciously deep shade of chocolate, these African American makeup tips are for you.

Fruit-juicy shades of cranberry, mango, kiwi and lemon look ravishing set against a backdrop of dark skin. To get the look shown on the model here apply a layer of matte apricot lipstick to your lips, blot, then repeat. Once you have achieved your desired color intensity, line your lips with a matching lip liner.

Dab a shimmery gold eye shadow onto the center of your lower lip, using your fingertip, for a gloss-like effect that's not sticky.

A few of our top lipstick suggestions for African American skin: Shimmering SL10 Lipstick, Nars Shiap Lipstick and DVF Pink Passion Tint. These colors pack a wallop: you don't need much to make a statement. To balance a bold apricot lip, illuminate the skin with a liquid highlighter with gold undertones.

Get the sexy feline shape of our model's eyes by rimming the inside of your lower lashline with a white eyeliner pencil, then line your lower lashline, extending the line all the way to the inner corners of the eyes (you can dab a hint of gold shadow at the inner corners of the eye). You want to make the line on your lower lashes more dramatic than the upper lashes, and extend both the upper and lower a few millimeters beyond the outer corners of each eye. Finish with a flurry of false eyelashes. --Stephanie Simons

A gold-reflecting highlighter goes well with a warm skin tone and has a golden sheen in the light. In contrast to that is a pink-reflecting highlighter, which has pink undertones and is intended for those with a cool skin tone. This comment has been removed.
