Not only is gold makeup for parties, but it’s also a versatile look. This makeup looks great for both day and night.
Many people dismiss gold makeup as “party season”, and consider it something only for extroverts. I’d argue that gold is a classic, a neutral even. Maybe that’s a stretch. It is the way you use makeup that matters. Fendi’s haute couture eyeshadow look looks unapologetic. You can choose a matte or bronzy if it seems too overwhelming. Use subtlety with your lips. Apply foundation, then highlighter. Use blotting paper to remove oil as you go. You want to glow and not shine.

I can’t live without… A practical guide for beauty and skincare for darker skin tones
Beauty has made great strides in inclusion. Many foundations are available that offer more than caramel. A wider variety of haircare brands are now targeting Afro hair textures. Nude lips are not restricted to rich tea biscuit colors. But, it is important to pay attention to skincare for darker skin. It is said that skin is skin. This is a total fallacy. Darker skin can present with different skincare issues, including eczema, acne, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration. Most skincare products do not focus on black skin. Many professionals in skincare don’t know how dark skin should be treated. Dija Ayodele has written a book about darker skin care. After seeing the anxiety that people of color have about accessing products and treatments, Ayodele developed the award-winning Black Skin Directory. This guide is for those who are specialists in dark skin tones. Her book covers everything, from historical and sociological insights about Black skin to practical advice. This book is fantastic and I highly recommend it. It is a great book that will be of value to people with Black skin.
