All You Need To Know About Makeup For Indian Skin Tone:
It is crucial to understand the unique skin requirements for a skin tone before purchasing any product or brand. The most common concern for Indian skin tone is pigmentation and dark circles have the tendency to show up more easily on the skin as well as increase in melanin production. It can often also dullen the skin which will not be vibrant due to the mixture of undertones. To tailor your skin routine, here are some ways to achieve that:
1.Correct, Conceal and Repeat
The Right Way To Cover Blemishes Is By Color Correcting, Concealing, and Repeating When Necessary
To address pigmentation and dullness, a colour corrector and concealer should do the work. When selecting a colour corrector, it is so that creamy formulas work better as they are easy to blend and build layers with. Liquid colour correctors, however, offer lesser play time in comparison as they set more quickly, frequently not offering enough chance to blend the formula sufficiently. It is advised to opt for an orange colour corrector to cancel pigmentation, moving from peach to more saturated hues for deeper skin tones.
2. Spotlights on blush:
It can be a real struggle to find blush colours that translate well with the skin tone. Dusty rose hues work well on fair and medium skin tones, while warmer tones will find that darkish coral shows up better on the skin. The thumb rule of utilizing cream blush is to apply it directly by the finger as it warms up the formula for application, while powder blush will require a brush for even blending.
3. Picking Nude Lip Shades for Indian Skin Tone:
When picking out nude lip shades, the choice depends on the colour of the lips. Most Indians have pigmented lips, hence it is advisable to apply a lip pencil in your chosen hue to form the base for the nude lip shades to come on more evenly and prevent the original colour of the lips from showing through the formula. For your choice of hue, it is advised to look within the same family of colours. A quick word of advice – it is recommended to go one shade darker with your nude lip shades, otherwise it will look too similar to the natural skin tone.
4. Going Gaga over Color:
Similar to picking out a nude lip shades, it is recommended to extend the same caution to other lip colours. Paler colours might look beautiful in the bullet but for those with yellow or olive undertones, pale shades can make the face look washed out. One of the best lip colours are pinks and peaches as they add vibrance to the face.
5. Find The Perfect Match
Despite the efforts of makeup brands to consciously increase their foundation shade range, hunting the perfect match can often still feel like a game of trial and error. To take the guesswork out of the choice, it is advised to always try the foundation on half of the face and then to compare both sides to see if the chosen shade is in perfect blend with the skin. It is advisable to go half a shade warmer than your actual skin tone to correct unevenness in the skin tone. Remember to swatch a few shades on your jawline first and the one that disappears into the skin in the right one.
