Written by Chandni GhoshDec 14, 2017
When it comes to party makeup, there are a variety of options. But not every kind of makeup works for every skin tone. When you wear makeup that doesn’t match your skin tone, it starts looking rather patchy. Can you imagine stepping into a party with your concealer or foundation looking grey? If this is what you fear, we have a solution—a roundup of makeup products that work wonders for dusky skin. Oh and they’re perfect for your party makeup kit too. Check them out!

Go for a honey coloured <a href="https://www.bebeautiful.in/all-things-makeup/everyday/how-to-apply-foundation-makeup">foundation</a>

Apply a champagne coloured bronzer

If you end up wearing a foundation that’s lighter than your skin tone, your skin will look grey and patchy. Moreover, when it comes to party makeup, we suggest choosing a subtle yet shimmery foundation since shimmer offsets beautifully on dusky skin. For that, we suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation in Honey Beam that’ll add a subtle sheen to your skin without looking overdone.


Choose your compact wisely

Party makeup is incomplete without a compact that works for your skin tone. We suggest doing a patch test on your jawline. If it seamlessly goes with your skin colour, it is the right shade. If you’re looking for the perfect compact, we suggest going with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact in Honey Beige that will work well for most of you with dusky skin.


Choose a rose coloured blush

When you choose light pink shades of blush, the colour gets lost on your cheeks. For your skin tone, choose a rose coloured blush that’ll not only add a dash of colour to your cheeks but also sculpt your cheekbones. If you want something stronger, choose a shimmer bronze shade that’ll add an illuminated look to your skin. If you ask us, we suggest relying on the Lakmé Pure Rouge Blusher Rose Crush for your party look.


Go for a burgundy lipstick

While there are plenty of deep and dark lipstick shades you can try out for your party look, the one that works perfectly on dusky skin is a burgundy. It’s a blue based shade that truly pops against dusky skin colour. If you’re looking for the right burgundy for your vanity kit, we suggest going with the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Burgundy Lush. Not only is a this a deeply saturated shade that lends a matte effect but it also doubles up as a cheek stain that will also look great against your skin tone.


Try a bronze eye

We’ve said this before and we’re saying it again –when it comes to party looks, there’s nothing like bronze that stands out on dusky skin. To add a bronzey effect to your eyes, we suggest lining your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner in Shimmery Bronze. Perfect for a nightout!

There’s nothing like a hint of glow on warm toned skin. Champagne coloured highlighters work best against dusky skin. We suggest relying on the Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter that’ll add just the right amount of glow to your party ready skin.
