K.I.S.S (Keep it Simple and Stylish)

keep your style simple and keep it pushing!

Tag Archives: makeup for dark skinned women

If there is one thing that I hate it is BAD makeup!  Granted there are ways to apply makeup for a more dramatic effect (evening wear) but even when you are going for a dramatic look it is important that you wear the color that best compliments you and most important your skin tone.  I will be the first to tell you that I LOVE color.  And contrary to what most believe I think that makeup should do more than just enhance your natural beauty.  I’ve never been one to wear it without it being noticed.  Now don’t get me wrong, it shouldn’t be seen from across a dark and smokey room glowing on your face like a beacon of sorts but it should be an attention grabber!

It seems like the summer months always bring out the best/worst in us when it comes to makeup.  Let’s face it… when you think of spring/summer you think of bright colors, sunshine and white!  We’ve waited all year to be able to wear these bursts of colors and by golly we’re going to wear them, just hopefully not all at once!

It’s just as my blog states people- Simple.  Just because you have a darker complexion it doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a bright color! And on that same note those with lighter complexions should not think that brighter colors compliment them the best either. It’s all about moderation and proper application.  With the wonderful world of the internet as well as countless makeup counters with trained consultants there is no reason for any woman to feel like they don’t know what color looks best on them or how to apply those colors for the best effect.

Check out my choice of  a makeup hit and miss below.

This look is a hit on both light and dark skin.

A MISS in every way!
