Makeup Colors That Look Great on Dark Skin

The Best Makeup For Dark Skin
If you have dark skin, flaunt it in bold, jewel tones and candy-colored brights that other women can’t pull off. Gorgeous, deeply pigmented skin looks especially radiant in shimmery golden colors for a 24k goddess effect. Find the best makeup for dark skin in our virtual makeup studio or follow our color code to get you on the right shopping path at the cosmetics counter.

Highlight your dark, dreamy assets with a true yellow-gold. Your face will look enviably luminous when you apply a touch to the inner corners of the eyes, the brow bone and the center of your lower lip (after you’ve applied lipstick and gloss). Play up dark cheeks in raisin, rust blood red and fuchsia. While the latter may look intimidating, it will give you a surprisingly natural-looking flush. Steer clear of light, sheer blushes. They have a tendency to look ashy on dark skin and can wash you out.

On dark eyes, choose colors like bronze, copper, coffee, navy and eggplant . Dark skinned women can rock metallic eye shadow like no one else. Try a deep silver or intensely shimmery, jewel-toned green shadow for dramatic effect. Play up deeply pigmented lips in light gold, caramel, coral, plum or tangerine. --Stephanie Simons

I have dark skin and my favorite is using bright colors as liners. My go-to if I want an instant eye-popper is this metallic electric blue liquid liner from urban decay. This comment has been removed.
I love using warm-toned bright colors! Golds, metallic beige, and eyeshadows with a golden undertone (as opposed to silvery) are my fav ever. rosy pink blushes also look amazing on the apples of the cheeks :D This comment has been removed.
