: Choose a type that is non-greasy, creamy blusher or a gel. Avoid
powder blusher especially if you have undue oiliness as oily skins
absorb powder make-up to a greater degree.
Highlighter : Can be very effective on dark
skins when used on the bridge of the nose, around the eye area,
above the cheek bones and just above the upper lip.
Eye shadow : As there is less contrast for
colour, dark skins can carry bright vivid colours well. For evenings
gold/copper look very good. Black/brown/navy blue eye pencil and
kohl is best suited.
Lipsticks : Dark skins look exotic with
bright punchy flames and fuchsias and bright reds.
