10 Makeup Pointers for Skin of Color From a Pro
by Alejandro Falcon, Artistic Director for Osmosis Skincare

  1. Use good skin care to keep the skin hydrated; it will help prevent an ashy or gray appearance.
  2. Use a sun protection product, especially on the forehead area so that it does not become darker than the rest of the face.
  3. Reiterate the importance of not picking at acne breakouts.  They can scar and become difficult to camouflage.
  4. Encourage the use of eye creams to keep the area under the eyes from becoming dryer or darker.  There will be less to conceal when applying makeup.
  5. Select a foundation that will work well with the skin type.
  6. Find foundation with warm undertones for those skins with a bronze or terracotta tone.
  7. Use bright colors for eye shadows to make the eyes stand out.
  8. Fill in brows to frame the eye shape.
  9. Find blushes with deep, rich colors.  These colors blend better and appear more natural on skin of color.
  10. Bright or deep lip colors with some rich or metallic glosses can help make skin of color look fresh and pretty, especially if natural makeup is used on the eyes.
