Black skin is considered to be usual on structure. And at the same time, it requires special cosmetic means including decorative ones. There are companies which make special decorative cosmetics for black skin. The difference of these cosmetics from others is that in its structure the "difficult" components are usually used which make cosmetics brighter and sated with color parameters and provide the ultra stability.
Still, such special cosmetics necessarily contain oil components, which will penetrate deeply in the skin of face and give the skin healthy look with complete absence of greasy shine. In usual cosmetics the oil contents are not taken into account intentionally for a black skin, therefore it is necessary to apply additional means. However, they frequently leave greasy shine on a person's skin and you have to use qualitative powder.
It is necessary to admit that the cosmetics intended for a swarthy skin tone seldom approach make-up for black skin because of the absence or small contents of oils. Dark skin tends to be less flexible; therefore it requires decorative cosmetics to contain the substances strengthening a skin. Thus the special cosmetic is very good on quality (it has a set of remarkable properties).
Black skin as well as any other type of skin requires humidifying before doing any kind of make-up. It is important that all decorative cosmetics contain sun-protection substances. Your skin should be protected. The neglect of protection leads to the occurrence of spots and transformation of skin into a rough and dark one. Dried up sweat, the sun, and the negative influence of the environment can result in rough skin tones. These decorative means should soften your skin, gradually removing dark stains and rough surfaces. The skin in due course will be of a warm chocolate shade. Primary makeup tones for a black skin are shades of ground, clay and all ranges of sandy color.
You can easily wear bright colors with a plentiful pigment of lipstick. Colors of irises, plums, strawberries (tasty number) will give you greater sexuality of your lips, but still will not seem vulgar. However, avoid orange shades while choosing a lip lipstick or a lip gloss as there is a risk to spoil the look. In general in a choice of colors be very attentive, therefore the wrong colors of cosmetic means for as person with a dark skin type may find out and emphasize on its lacks. Usually, some lip glosses and shades which women of African origin use may be excessive in a make-up, so simply it is enough to apply dim or pearl (it would be desirable to use shine) lipsticks.
The grey and brown colors of shadows will be ideal to balance with the form and color of your eyes. Try also to use silver, bronze and terracotta shades as they will give your eyes refinement in addition to a mysterious look. It is necessary to remember that the "metal" patches of light in a make-up should be also of a dark shade. Avoid easy, very light, poured colors of shadows. Do not put the shadows of one shade on your eyes. You should also like the results of experiments with violet, dark blue shades of ink (beside classical black).
It is also important to emphasize your eyebrows. Never use a black pencil and a grey one will outline the form more softly. In general, many imagists consider that your eyebrows do not require additional nuances.
The blush, as well as a lipstick, should be of the sated shade. The apricot palette will give a black skin an easy and gentle luminescence. The bronze colors will help effectively to hint at your African temperament. Natural plum, chestnut and terracotta shades will also suit ideally for your type of a skin. There should be mentioned the nuance that a soft pink color will look gentle and pretty on your face.
The voice-frequency cream for a black skin appears to be a main option, too. It effectively levels the color of the facial skin and outlines it as well. Use various shades of a voice-frequency cream or proof-reader for updating lacks of appearance.
Do not be afraid to experiment when choosing cosmetic means which will provide ideally suitable make-up for your type of a skin. But what is the most important option- do not forget about a principle of color harmony.
