Mainstream makeup lines – not to mention the mainstream media – has rarely paid enough attention to the beauty of brown skin. But in the wake of new, more inclusive makeup lines, women with different skin tones are finally getting the makeup products they deserve. And naturally, if you’re one of these women, you’ll want to try out some unique makeup looks. Here are FabFit’s favorite makeup ideas and trends.
1. Classic Red
Only misinformed individuals believe that red lips don’t look effortlessly enchanting on darker skin. Show off your full, luscious lips by highlighting them in a glossy red.
2. Neon Party
Bright colours pop beautifully against darker skin tones. Don’t be afraid to stand out with bright yellow, light green, or orange looks! You can apply these eye-catching hues through eyeliner, with eyeshadow, on lipstick, or for a daring dash of colour on the cheeks.
Just remember not to go full neon throughout your whole face! Pick one feature to highlight with neon colours and leave your other features to more muted or nude tones.
3. Bronze Beauty
Complimenting your natural skin tone with a similar hue might seem arbitrary, but with a little shimmer included for a warm glow, you’ll be turning heads everywhere. Choose a shimmery bronzer or highlighter over the usual highlight areas and blind the world with your glow.
Keep a nude lip alongside this look for a beautiful and complimentary aesthetic.
4. Glitter Fest
If you like standing out in a crowd, then this look is sure to slay the day. Cover your eyes with your favorite shade of eyeshadow and top it with gorgeous glittery shadow in a similar colour. If you want to attract even more attention, use the glitter on your lips instead! Unique colours, like blue, silver, or green, work wonderfully on the lips.
To best achieve this look, focus on either the eyes or lips, and don’t apply glitter on both. Keep the rest of your face – aside from the glittery feature – looking calmer with nude tones.
5. Pink Berry
A pink lipstick in your favorite shade, whether a vibrant party tone or a sophisticated berry shade, is sure to turn heads. This ultra feminine look goes beautifully with soft, neutral eye makeup and is perfect for a day out, and even a night on the town!
6. Bold Brows
Thick, well-groomed brows are the height of fashion and the makeup world’s trends right now. So put down those tweezers and opt to look dashing in your natural brows! Use an eyebrow pencil to fill in gaps, keep stray hairs in place with eyebrow gel, and add some glowing colour if you like.
7. Smoky Eye
The classic smoky eye is not a makeup look to be dismissed. You can even do a reverse smoky eye by making your lower liner have the smoky effect while the top of your eye maintains a neutral look or plays with a bright colour!
To best achieve this look, go for a light lip colour alongside your bold eyes.
