Makeup for dusky skin tones can be tricky but with the right technique, dusky skin looks amazing alluring! What’s more, it always manages to turn heads-the right way. Go for these makeup tips and hear everyone go ‘wow’! 

Start With Exfoliating

Your skin is capable of becoming the seat of dull and dead cells, and really fast. This natural build up can make you look ashy and listless, even after you apply foundation. The trick is to exfoliate your face on a weekly basis by using a soft, gentle scrub. This weekly regime of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing gives rise to the perfect facial canvas for better makeup results and should be carried out regularly.

Apply Glowing Base

Use a golden or champagne liquid highlighter all over your face and then wait a minute or two before starting with your foundation. This will give you a natural and dewy look.

Pick The Precise Foundation Shade

Number one golden rule for dusky women is to never use a foundation lighter than their skin tone. A lighter shade of foundation can make skin look grayish and dull. Take a little effort and match the foundation perfectly with your skin tone. This will create a seamless and natural finish canvas for the makeup. 

Never, I Repeat, Never Skip Bronzer And Blush

It’s a myth that dark skin should stay away from bronzers and blushes. Go for shades like rose, deep orange and coral. Try to avoid shades like brown and beige, as they won’t suit you. 

You can choose a dark rose for the day, and shades like plum, wine, and bronze for the evenings. For evening parties, shimmers with gold tones can work wonders for the dark complexion. But remember, don’t get overboard with it.

Go For Caramel Instead Of Nude Lips

Nude lips are undoubtedly beautiful and subtle, but those light pinks or nude peaches won’t look good on a dusky complexion. So opt for colours which are closer to caramel. These lip shades will enhance your lips and will make them look luscious while complementing your complexion.

If you think your lips are dark, apply a tiny amount of foundation on them before wearing lipstick. This will bring out the colour better.

Glossy Eyelids

The perfect finish to your glowing from within makeup is to add glossy lids. Use a cream based eye shadow on your lids in coral, brown, or rose gold shade that will bring out the beauty of your beautiful dark eyes.
