HOW TO PREPARE YOUR SKIN?
The first step should be getting into the habit of maintaining your skin on a daily basis is the first step to your successful makeup routine.
On a daily basis: use a mild purifying cleanser as well as a mattifying moisturizer, preferably one without oil. This will allow us to deeply hydrate our skin without greasing it up.
CHALLENGE 1: UNIFY YOUR COMPLEXION
We’ve all heard the saying “Black Don’t Crack” and it’s very true as the melanin in darker skin means it’s more resistant to the stigma of passing time.
However, sometimes our complexions can lack uniformity, the forehead and the contours of our mouth may be darker for example, and small spots of pigmentation may appear.
Neutralize darker areas of the face using a peach, orange or even red corrector. Also apply it to the dark circles.
Then apply a concealer and a foundation of the color of the complexion.
If there is still a lack of uniformity, apply a foundation corresponding to the lightest shade of the face in order to provide maximum light.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR FOUNDATION?
The simplest way is to test the color directly on the face, ideally around the jawline (instead of testing it on the wrist or on your hand).
To avoid unpleasant surprises I would also recommend leaving the store to see how it complements your skin in natural light.
CHALLENGE 2: CREATE CONTRAST
The eyes and the mouth are the two areas to work to create contrast.
Depending on the effect you are hoping to achieve I would always recommend playing with shades according to the desired result:
Neutral, golden, brown or metallic tones for a natural look;
Bright colors such as blue, green or orange to intensify the look for those who really dare to stand out from the crowd.
To maximize the contrast, apply the light shades in the inner corner of the eye and the dark shades on the outside.
For the lips, us girls with darker skin can afford to be as daring as we dare from the most subtle colors to bursting reds or any color you can think of for your lips.
removing makeup is essential, the best for the eyes is to use a specific two-phase makeup remover.
For the face, double cleaning is preferred: cleansing milk or oil and then a gentle cleansing gel to cleanse the skin.
The little extra is to use a tonic lotion or a thermal mist to neutralize the limescale effects of the water.
For skin with significant pigment spots, I recommend using a vitamin C-based serum to restore radiance and uniformity to the complexion overnight.
Be careful not to use this treatment before exposing yourself to the sun, it is better to keep this step for evening treatments.
And above all, never forget that daily sun protection is an important part of looking after our skin.
