No-Makeup Look For Deep Skin

A No-Makeup Makeup Look For Women With Darker Skin Tones

When it comes to achieving a natural makeup look on deeper skin tones, avoid reaching for something too neutral. While it might seem counterintuitive, experiment with shades rich in color to find something that enhances, all while blending seamlessly into the skin. Think of your color palette like your favorite date-night treats: grab up some roses and chocolates to achieve your most natural look.

  1. Because deeper skin is often prone to hyperpigmentation, start by blending any lighter spots. For yellowish undertones, correct your light spots with a concealer, set with a powder, and then blend on a foundation that matches your skin tone. Red undertones can skip the correcting and just apply foundation, paying special attention to problem areas.
  2. Dust on a copper, amber, or tawny bronzer if desired, followed by a rose-colored blush along your cheekbone for a natural flush.
  3. For eye makeup, soft, chocolate-toned shadows are the perfect way to define. Enhance your lashes by dotting in between them with a felt-tipped liner, and apply a swipe of mascara on the roots to create fullness.
  4. Accentuate your lips by applying a gloss or lipstick one to two shades darker than your lip tone. Or, keep your lips bare, adding a dab of clear gloss on the middle of your bottom lip for a pop of brightness.
