Makeup Tips for Hispanic Skin

The best thing you can do in addition to learning how to apply your own makeup is to know what colors and makeup styles are right for your skin tone. With the advancement of cosmetic companies creating colors for every shade under the sun, there should be no excuse for you to not know what eye shadows, lipsticks, blush, etc., will complement your skin. We'll focus on makeup for Hispanic skin.

Hispanic Skin:

- Many Hispanic women have naturally medium to darker skin tones. Enhance and don't overdo or undermine your darker skin tone and dramatic features.

- Because this skin tone tends to have a very dramatic look--dark brows, eyes and lips--you need to apply your makeup in a way that maximizes the overall effect. Look into mineral-based foundations, and ask a makeup expert to help you select the right shade.

- Go for soft colors such as pinks and mauves for lipstick and eye colors. Avoid browns and burgundy colors, since these tend to make you look overly dramatic and very unflattering.

- Using brown-black mascara will soften dark eyes. For eye shadow, try to keep the colors soft and light but try to stay away from silver and copper colors that contain too much shimmer. Keep it simple.

- For blush, choose shades such as Salmon, Peach and Tangerine.

- Don't overpluck your brows! Get them waxed by a professional who can determine the right lines and width of your brows and maintain them. Overplucking and drawing in brows with pencil looks fake and very tacky. Be more natural.
