2. A cream too greasy

A foundation too creamy will leave you a shiny skin. Black skins tend to be fat, so opt for a fluid foundation. Otherwise, use a matte base before applying your foundation.

3. The effect masks no, the velvety yes!

Black skin usually have some small color irregularities. You must, therefore, unify your complexion. By cons, avoid too much powder or apply a foundation too thick. Create a velvety effect with lighter textures.

4. A concealer of the wrong color

You should not apply too much concealer, otherwise, it will mark your fine lines more clearly than your natural complexion. A small touch is enough to gently tap the underside of the eye. Feel free to go beyond the dark circle’s area for a better, more concealed finish.

Genetic hyperpigmentation or big fatigue, if your dark circles are particularly dark, be sure to use special products on a daily basis and not only on D-day. Good nutrition and long hours of sleep, nothing better than to cure them. As for the cosmetic solutions, you will have to make masks with repetition, twice a week.

Follow the advice of your providers if you want more than just a gloss. For an intense and colorful mouth, well delineated and long-lasting, check out a wedding makeup tutorial and comment on your wishes with your provider during the first appointment.

6. The rectangular eyebrows

Your eyebrows may lack texture. In this case, do not draw them too straight or too exaggerated. Even if you would like to have well-marked eyebrows, the shape should remain natural and the head of the eyebrow should not be too square. For a more beautiful effect, use a brown pencil and not black after brushing your eyebrows. You will get a natural bridal makeup and consistent with your complexion.

7. False eyelashes “too false”

No need to stretch them out like a cabaret dancer. Ask your professional to help you design makeup with eyelashes corresponding to the length and volume suitable for your festivity.

8. Do not blush the blush

We often see a black skin make-up with candy pink cheekbones. If there is no color rule and you have to do several tests to determine the one that suits you, it is essential to blur the blush so that the makeup is successful.

Know how to dose and limit yourself to the area of the frame of the cheekbones by wielding a wide brush from bottom to top. Then blend well with a large feather duster brush.

9. Eyeshadow too colorful

10. Glitter on your face

Be satisfied with a complexion illuminator. Sequins stand out too much on the dark skin. Depending on your wedding theme, rhinestones and sequins, in small doses, can be a good remedy to look after your appearance with glamor. Put a few on your eyelids to accentuate the depth of your eyes and voila!

If you like glittering and your day J lends itself, you can also apply a glittery gel or a few brilliant touches with a spray on your neckline, especially if you wear a strapless wedding dress on the day of your beautiful union. Body or hair, limit yourself to one area and ensure that the result is uniform.
