With a little bit of knowledge of the right makeup and right attitude dusky skinned girls also can look beautiful and confident. Here are a few makeup tips for dusky skin tones.


Always moisturize well before foundation else the foundation can make your skin too dry. Dark skin is considered to be healthier than fair skin. Since dark skin tend to be more oily it’s always better to use a oil free moisturizer and a primer that controls oil. The primer helps to blend the foundation smoothly. Always test the shade of foundation in sun light before buying to avoid mismatch. The store lighting can cheat you. Blend well to avoid harsh edges. Never skip a translucent or lightly tinted powder over the foundation to avoid oily look.


Shades like coral, deep orange, wine etc look good on dark skin. If the color is not shown properly on your cheek, apply a cream blush under the powder blush to enhance the color. Another advantage of dark skin is that you can skip blush if you want.


Burgundy, Bronze, Brown, metallic shades etc look good on dark skin. Avoid bright and light shades. Black looks good on all skin tones.
