I love a good hack, especially if it does the work right. Honestly, any tip and trick, which helps to reduce my task in getting ready is a life saver. Most of the makeup hacks don’t require additional tools and accessories and are doable. And for dark skin tones, I have figured some of the best hacks for making your products pop and adding an amp to your look.
Keep scrolling to find these hacks.
- Avoid Black
No matter how dark your hair is, avoid using a jet black shade. Be it for your hair or eyebrows. Use a medium – dark brown shade instead, this looks more natural and also blends well with your skin tone.
- Keep It Natural
Blending and building a color to dark skin are very important. Use a combination of textures, starting by using a cream base and completing it with a powder. Always use a translucent powder, as this tends to set more easily, without any patches.
- Dare To Go Bold
Nude palettes and white based eye shadows don’t work for you. It is recommended that you go bold with bright eye shadow colors like, blue, purple and plum. This will accentuate your eye features.
- Conceal With a Red Lipstick
Just using a concealer is not enough; this doesn’t do justice when it comes to concealing dark circles. Instead, use an orange-red lipstick, before you start with your base makeup. This will counteract the blue/purple tone under your under eye area.
- Pop That Cheek
A lot of times, blush is lost on dark skin tones, hence; pick up blushes that are heavily pigmented. Use shades like orange or bright pink. Another hack here could be; that you use a creamy lipstick on the apples of your cheeks.
- Get That Golden Touch
Add a little highlighter to your blush; this will add a sun kissed look to your skin. Avoid using silver highlighter as it will make the glow look artificial. Use a nice golden highlighter.
- Red based bronzer
You need to add color to your skin so that you can accentuate your features. Instead, of finding a real dark brown bronzer, use a bronzer with red undertones. This will contour and accentuate your features.
- Bold Lips
Bold lips look hot on dark skin. Avoid sticking to nude and light pink lipsticks as they will tend to wash you out. Pick bright and bold lip colors to pop that pout!
