2. Choose a foundation color in harmony with your skin tone
Over the years makeup and beauty brands have started to make foundations and beauty products that cater to melanin skins. Find a good foundation ahead of your big day or trust your makeup artist to do so.
3. Get a great blush palette
We want to see that extra glow pop as you walk through your day and one step to achieving this is a great blush palette. Apply around the cheekbones for extra effect and that magical glow.
4. Create the perfect lip
For dark skin, the upper lip is naturally darker. So before putting on the lipstick, draw the outline with a semi-matte dark pencil, ideally enriched with jojoba oil. If you find your mouth too fleshy, you can refine it by using the contour pencil on the inside of the lip. If your lips are too thin, draw the outline on the outside. The gloss can bring a touch of volume and make your mouth fuller. Always harmonize your lipstick with your blush.
5. Go Bold with Eye Makeup
Bold eye makeup looks amazing on dark skin tones. Jewel tones and bright colours give vitality to your face and make your skin look gorgeous. Just make sure to leave your lips and cheeks more muted when you go with bold eye makeup.
6. Create a mood board
A mood board is one way to streamline choices and also present endless inspiration so ahead of your big day both brides and makeup artists can gather pictures of dark-skinned brides using their beauty looks as a guide and also pick unique features from each.
7. Consider a trial makeover before your big day
One way to ensure that the bride and makeup artiste are on the same page is to consider a trial before the big day. A bride can come in a week or few days to her big day for a trial sharing with the bride how she wants to look and products that work best for this. Dear brides to be we cannot wait to see your bridal beauty look on your big day.
