There are plenty of beauty tips available for girls with fair skin, but what about some tips for girls who have darker complexions? Having a dark skin tone means that you have a different set of makeup rules from those that pale skinned girls follow and different tricks that you can use to make the most of your beautiful dusky complexion. It also means that you can use different shades of makeup and employ different techniques to bring out the best in your natural skin color. Here are ten of the best beauty and makeup tips for gorgeous ladies dark skin.

1. Use sunscreen

The world is full of different shades of skin, but the rules for wearing sunscreen apply right across the globe. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because you have dark skin, the sun won’t damage it. You may well not burn as easily as a fair skinned woman would, but the sun will still damage your skin and speed up the ageing process if you don’t use sunscreen.

2. Moisturise every day

When you have dark skin, if it becomes dry, it can make your complexion look ashy. To keep your skin looking young and beautiful and to make the most of that radiant dark skin, moisturise every day with a good quality moisturiser and moisturise your body after every shower.

3. Take good care of acne and pimples

One of the disadvantages of having dark skin is that you can be more prone to acne and pimples and they will show up more on your face too. Always remove all your makeup at night, use a good facial cleanser to keep your skin perfectly clean. Never pick at pimples, or you could be left with scars on your skin.

4. Be careful choosing foundation

Another one of important makeup tips for dark skin is to be careful when choosing foundation. As with any good makeup, you should be looking to compliment your natural complexion, not change it, or hide it. When you are choosing a foundation, be careful not to select one that is lighter than your natural skin colour, or you will make your skin look grey. Always test foundation, before you buy, on your forehead, or on a spot just above your jaw line…

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance.
