You Ask, We Tell: The Best Makeup for Tan Skin
10/18/2011 - 13:00 ||
Among the outstanding questions our Facebook fans asked during the beauty Facebook chat on Friday was a query about what makeup colors complement tan skin. We quickly answered with a few suggestions, but now that we’ve seen these recent photos of La La Anthony and Christina Milian we have to revisit!
Both of these gorgeous Latinas look bright-eyed and radiant, and here’s why:
- Pink cheeks. A bright pop of pink focused on the apples of the cheeks gives caramel skin tones a healthy glow. Try Iman Luxury Blushing Powder in Peace, $11, imancosmetics.com.
- Shimmery eye shadow. A light shimmer contrasts perfectly with their warm, deep skin. Swipe CoverGirl Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling, $8, drugstore.com, on lids, then apply highlighter, like Benefit High Beam, $26, benefitcosmetics.com, directly underneath your eyebrows and in the inner corners of your eyes.
- Nude lips. If your lips are naturally dark, color them in with a light pinky-beige lip pencil, then layer on a nude gloss. Mally Beauty has a kit that comes with both pencil and gloss: Mally City Chick Nude Lip Kit, $25, mallybeauty.com.
