This is a wedding makeup for black women tutorial by Nitraa B. She teaches the steps to getting the perfect bridal makeup done for dark skinned women. If you’re a beginner trying to learn good makeup for black skin, this is the perfect tutorial for you.
What Foundation to use?
We recommend you use liquid foundation. It looks so much better on black women than powder or cream based foundations. Powdered foundations will make your skin look very oily. To enhance the lighter tone of your skin, you should use sheer foundation along with a tinted moisturizer that matches the skin colour on the centre of face. Before your wedding day, you should experiment on a few makeup looks with a makeup professional and if you want to try it yourself, the video above can help.

When you’re buying foundation, apply it on your forehead and see if it matches. Do not apply on your hand as your hand tends to have a lighter shade from your face. It’s better if you go a shade darker than your skin instead of a shade lighter.
Eyeshadow For Black Women Brides
Lookout for dark colours like burgundy, copper, purple and green. These are the best eyeshadows that fit the dark skin. However, you need to ensure that they blend well in your skin. For the ultimate glow up, try golden and bronze eyeshadows.

Our recommendation is too avoid glossy lipsticks but instead go with colours like coffee, plums, burgundy, gold, pink and chocolate. Those are the best for your dark shade.

Try out some new shades like peach, orange, rose and bronze. Generally, darker shades will go perfectly for black women.
