Choose a creamy or liquid foundation. Water based foundation is preferred.
A sheer foundation and a good concealer are important for creating the illusion of perfect skin. The foundation should not be lighter than skin color.
Dark skin shows up layers of make up much more than fair skin so mixing should be done carefully. Add a drop of water to foundation before applying it.

Use a light powder after the foundation. This gives the skin a shine and is not too heavy. Avoid applying too much powder. Dust off the excess powder.

For blushing use colors like coral, rose and deep orange. Avoid brown and peachy shades. For very dark skin shades of bronze, plum and wine are suggested. Blend the blusher over the cheekbones as it brightens the skin color.

Eye-make up:
Dark purple and blue colors look good on dark skin colors. Dark metallic colors also look good. Use eyeliner and black mascara in the end.
Avoid white or light color eye-shadow.

It is used on the bridges of the nose, around the eye area, above the cheek bones and upper lip for dark skin people.

Medium and dull shades lipsticks look better. If you have dark lips, apply some foundation and powder before lipstick. Lip colors such as caramel, blackberry and purples can be applied by dark skin people.
