5 BEST FOUNDATIONS FOR DARKER SKIN TONES (OLIVE -BRONZE)

What is Foundation MAKE UP

Foundation is usually the first layer of make up applied to the face to even out discolorations, and hide minor complexion imperfections. Foundation is not concealer! This is a point that needs to be remembered by many women that layer on a lot of foundation in the hope of hiding a scar or acne. A lighter shade of foundation, however, can be used to hide dark under eye circles and can also act as an eye primer if out of primer or concealer.

How to select Foundation

To be honest, I am not a fan of foundation in creating personal looks for myself as I prefer the fresh faced look. However, when I am working with clients, I tend to combine two-three foundation shades to create near-perfect skin without the face losing it’s natural  dimension because no woman is one shade especially here in the tropics where they are constantly exposed to sunlight and tanning.

Darker skinned women (Olive-Bronze) tend to have combination skin i.e. skin drier at the outer perimeters of the face and oilier at the ‘T’ zone so always stick to Liquid or Cream foundations and set with sheer/translucent powder. Mineralized powder foundations will do nothing for you.

That being said, here are my top 5 foundation picks for darker skin tones.

Before  I round up, here is a QUICK TIP in preventing one of the worst foundation blunders when it comes to taking photos:

The ghostly/pasty look noticed after snapping some certain pictures especially with a camera flash  is from light-reflecting ingredients in foundations. As long as your foundations Do not contain any high amounts of any oxides (iron oxide, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide AKA sunscreen), you should be fine. Makeup Forever is known to be photo-friendly. Also make sure to avoid these ingredients not only in your foundation, but your powder, moisturizer, and primer as well.

  2. We all know by now, that when you make a habit of connecting with potential
    customers little and often, on topics that they care about, you increase
    the likelihood of them doing business with you.
    It’s just for craftaholic women and outfit-hungry fashionistas, right.

    There are different ways on getting invited to Pinterest.
