Whether it’s picking a foundation for that flawless base or choosing a concealer to hide your blemishes, it’s essential to keep your skin tone in mind. Using the wrong shade can make your skin look patchy and unnatural, especially if you’re blessed with a deeper skin tone. But worry not girls, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a roundup of the best beauty products every dusky girl should have in her makeup arsenal...
Choosing the right shade foundation is really important, as this is what forms the base of your makeup. Ensure that you choose a shade that is closest to your skin tone or your skin might end up looking too ashy. We recommend you pick your perfect match from the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation range, which comes in 16 shades that are tailor-made for Indian skin tones.
A concealer is a must-have product in every woman’s makeup kit. This wonder product not only covers up your dark circles and blemishes, but also conceals pigmentation and dark spots to give you even-looking skin. The Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concealer comes in six different shades that are perfectly suitable for dusky women. The creamy formula is easy to blend and delivers medium to high coverage to conceal all your skin imperfections, including fine lines and wrinkles.
Blush is that glow-inducing product that every woman needs in her vanity. But choosing the right shade for dusky skin can sometimes be slightly tricky. Always opt for shades with warm undertones as they look natural on your skin tone. Colours such as peach, red or warm brown look stunning on deeper skin tones. The Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Peach Affair is a perfect pick for dusky beauties. Plus, it has a silky matte finish and glides on to the skin like a dream.
Dusky skin tones make for the best canvas when it comes to experimenting with coloured eye makeup. This is because colourful eye makeup does not look stark against deeper skin tones; instead, it accentuates the eyes and looks beautiful. Try any shade from the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate The Gelato Collection and brace yourself for all the compliments that are going to come pouring in.
Bold lipstick shades
When it comes to lipsticks, there’s nothing that does not look good on dusky women. From nudes, browns and burgundies to warm pinks, peaches and even bold lip colours such as plums, berries and oranges look stunning on you. Take your pick from the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick range that comes in 42 gorgeous shades. Image courtesy: Instagram
