When it comes to a simple makeup look here are my makeup essentials for dark skintones. For me its all about amazing skin with a beautiful highlight and a pretty eye. Once you have good skin everything else falls into place. Of course make sure skin has been prepped I like to use primers like the Ren Perfect Canvas or the Mac Prep and Prime Radiance Natural Radiance. Keep makeup simple and invest in a good foundation and concealer. For me with dark skintones concealer is everything as it helps correct skin, brighten up under the eyes and just give that flawless finish.
