Finding the best fall makeup for your skin is sometimes easier said than done. Sure, anyone could easily pull off current fall beauty trends like berry lips and metallic eyes, but that doesn't mean we can all rock the same lippies and shadows with equal ease. The key to flawless makeup is knowing what shades work well with your complexion, especially as makeup gets bolder in the colder months.
Finding the perfect products may prove difficult at times for my fellow deep skinned beauties out there, but fall is your time to shine. Who better to pull off bronze shadows and bold lips than you? The luxury of having dark skin is that we can handle bold colors and high pigmentations like it's nobody's business! It's almost as if the latest trends were made just for your rich skin! '90s lips? You can stand to go darker! Hazy eyes? You can definitely go smokier! All you need are the best products for your beauty stash.
No need to take on the hassle of figuring out what works well on your skin because I've done the legwork for you! With these dark complexion-approved products, you'll be slaying fall's trends like a pro.
1. Bronze Shadow
Adding warmth to any look, bronze shadows are dominating this year's fall makeup looks. Brown beauties will have no trouble pulling off this trend as metallic shades of gold, copper and peach hues pop against darker complexions. Shimmering, bronze shadows leave your skin glowing and won't ash out your tone like pale hues and white shadows.
2. Flushed Cheeks
Flushed cheeks are a fall trend that is intended to make you look like you've been lightly flustered by the winter cold — without having to actually go outside. To achieve this look on dark skin, you've got to back away from the baby pinks, roses and peach colored blushes and opt for bolder, deeper shades instead. Mauve and soft berries are perfect for medium skin. Even darker skin tones can handle brick red, raisin, tangerine, and deep terracotta shades!
3. Hazy Eyes
Smoky eyes are a classic look on any skin tone. This year's trends take the smoky eye to a new level with an ultra diffused shadow technique, creating a sultry makeup look you can do without any brushes. For darker skin, just be sure to stick to blacks with warm undertones, rather than those with cool or blue undertones that could ash out your complexion. Dark browns and deep purples will also work well.
4. Rich Lips
Bold lips are a trend that never seems to fade and, as a '90s girl, I'm loving it. The key to this look is to go deep with your reds, berries, and chocolates. For the dark skinned beauties, you will have no trouble pulling off these shades! There's no way you can't make a statement this fall with these rich lippies.
5. Metallic Eyes
Shimmering eyes blazed the runways for fall 2015's looks, but this time we're mixing silver metallics with bright shades of blue and purple. This is yet another trend that deep toned babes can pull off with ease as metallics pop against the rich pigment in your skin. Deep silvers, navies, and eggplants will be your go-to!
Once you've mastered each of these, have a little fun and mix and match your looks. Pair your bronze shadow with your '90s lips or get sweet and sultry with smoked out eyes and flushed cheeks. No matter the combination, these fall trends are perfection!
