Are you blessed with dusky skin? Then this list is for you! Girls, if you have deeper skin tones, you’re so lucky because your makeup always looks beautiful and dramatic - and there are so many colour palettes to experiment with! This list narrows it down to the 7 definitive products that you must have in your makeup kit if you’re a dusky girl. Hello, gorgeous!
1. Coloressence Aqua Makeup Base Foundation
The Coloressence Aqua Makeup Base Foundation comes in four shades, two of which are perfect for dusky skin. The beige and brown shades blend well with wheatish to dusky complexions to ensure that your face doesn’t look caked up (which tends to happen when your base is lighter than your skin tone) Use this awesome base before you move on to the other fabulous products on this list. L’Oreal also has an amazing foundation - their True Match series is every dusky girl’s dream come true! The L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation has four shades that work very well with dusky skin. Try Golden Ivory, Apricot Sand, Amber and Golden Amber if you have ever had trouble finding the perfect foundation to match your skin.

5. Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Eye Shadow Duos
The right eyeshadow is essential for beautiful, dramatic eyes, and dusky people are SO lucky because they have so many great shades to experiment with. We personally think purple is a lovely colour for a dramatic look, which is why we absolutely LOVE Lakme’s Absolute Drama Stylist Eye Shadow Duos. Blend the blue and the purple together for a bold, smokey eyes effect that will help you look smokin’ hot!

6. Maybelline New York Fit Me Blush
Maybelline New York Fit Me Blush Medium Coral 202 is the perfect blush for wheatish to dusky skin tones. If you are a dusky girl, blushes in shades of coral are best for you. Avoid pinks that stand out a bit too much and browns that make your skin look dull. Opt instead for this gorgeous coral that will blend well and leave your cheeks looking rosy and beautiful.
