Choosing the right type and style of makeup for complexions that lean towards any side of the colour spectrum can be challenging. One has to ensure that the skin doesn’t look too dull, pale or ashy after one has applied makeup. In this post, I have put together a list of useful makeup tips that you can follow if you have a dark or dusky complexion. Some of these tips and tricks will bring out your natural radiance and will help you use makeup to enhance your best features.
Here are 9 perfect tips for dark complexions:
1. Always prep your skin with moisturizer: Moisturising your face is a very important step in your skincare and makeup routine, and you should never skip it. If you don’t moisturize your face adequately, the dry and patchy bits will show through your makeup and give your complexion an ashy and uneven look. Recommendations: Clinique Dramatically Different Moistruizer and Gel.
2. Pick a primer suitable for your skin type: Using a good primer that is meant for your skin type can help your makeup apply evenly and last through the day. Assess your skin type and then choose between an oil controlling, pore minimizing and hydration boosting primer. Recommendations: ELF Tone Adjusting Face Primer, Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector
