THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO MAKE UP FOR DARK SKIN
The art of makeup can be really difficult to perfect sometimes, and one of the things that make it even harder for dark women is finding your perfect shade or match of makeup products.
With many makeup brands in the market today, it’s not an easy feat to know the exact ones to buy.
Today I’ve compiled a list of my favourite makeup products (On a budget of course).
The simple truth is makeup is very easy to learn and to perfect, when you know the right products to use. Do you want to know my favourite budget makeup products? Read on.
Primers are very important, as they serve as the base of any makeup look, also your makeup sits on your primer not your skin to minimise breakouts and reactions to the chemicals in the makeup products. Primers also make your makeup last longer than when you go without.
My favourite primer as of now is the Mac prep+prime primer. It has a nice consistency, it lasts long and it leaves a nice shine on my face what’s not to like?
You would be surprised by how much of a difference a good foundation can make to your face. Luckily Mac has foundation shades for dark skinned women. My favourite foundation is Mac studio water weight foundation.
- It blends well
- It has a nice consistency
- It dries quickly
- It actually covers my pimple scars.
- It has a long staying power
Concealers can be used to hide marks or even to highlight your face
I use the Mac foundation it’s perfect because it has six shades, I use the orange to colour correct , I use the darkest colour to hide my scars and to conceal my face, I use the of the shades to clean up my eyebrows and to highlight underneath my eye.
Another concealer I absolutely love is the L.A girl pro conceal concealer, I use it to double highlight underneath my eyes.
My favourite powder of all time is the Mac studio fix powder
- It lasts long, I’ve had the same one for 18 months
- It brings the whole look together
Highlighters are used to bring glow to your makeup look, we all need a little glow in our lives, just kidding. Highlighters brings the whole makeup look to a professional standard.
I also use a liquid highlighter, I mix it with my foundation to give it a shiny dewy finish.
I use my Mac concealer palette to contour my face, I also use my L.A girl pro contour powder.
Setting spray is important to finish any makeup look, it helps set the makeup and make it last longer.
Setting powder is used to set concealer , I use the makeup Revolution setting powder.
Different eyeshadows palettets can be used to create different eye makeup look.
Eyebrow pencils are used to fill out the eyebrows.
This is my budget makeup list, I hope you find one or two you like,
