Make up for darker skin tones
Mistakes made on darker skin tones - If you use a coloured powder to set the foundation, the skin can end up looking quite 'ashy' and not so fresh, therefore I always use a colourless (white) fine powder which simply sets the make up without changing the skin tone.
Darker Matt Eyeshadow colours don't always show up on darker skintones - If you do want to go dark and sultry - always use a shimmer eyeshadow and insert a bit of colour (purple is great mixed with black and brown as it gives depth to the shadow)
Always ask your model what they want to change about their features - Noses can be slimed down (if requested) by Shading on the outside of the nose and highlighting down the center. Lips can Always be made to look thinner by applying a darker lip colour on the outer shape and bringing the colour either lighter or brighter towards the middle of the lips.
I always embrace each and every feature the person has that I am working on - we only have one face, so let's celebrate it!
Below are some photos from Saturday's wedding showing exactly what looks you can achieve and a list of the make up products I used for each person.
