Beauty Secrets for Dark to Deep Tones

Finding colors that work for dark to deep skin tones can be tricky, so we put together a few of our favorite products and tips. 

Contour Like A Queen

Thanks to celebs like Kim Kardashian, contouring your face has become the “it” look of the moment.  The heavily contoured face may look stunning on camera but it doesn’t work for face-to-face. Keep it simple and soft, choose a light and dark powder (keep within two shades of your complexion).  

Use your contour brush to apply dark powder in the hollows of your cheeks toward the corner of your mouth.  Then apply a sweep of the lighter powder on the top of cheekbones with your buffing brush. Try a brand like Ben Nye Banana Powder or Ben Nye Topaz powder.

Beat those Brows to Shape

Use a brow color that is one shade lighter than your hair color to avoid a harsh brow look.  Use a brow product like Anastasia’s dip brow to fill in and sculpt your brow shape.  Brush through with your lash-brow groomer to blend. 

Serve with Lips

If your lips are two toned (lighter in the center) you may not want to cover them up, but you can bring them closer together for a natural looking lip.  Choose a lip pencil that is a shade darker than the lightest part of your lip (pale plum, pink or brown) and fill in entire lip.  Blend into lip with your lip brush) then apply a lip gloss or lipstick in a similar shade.  Try  MAC's Lipstick in Pink Poodle for a youthful look.
