The make-up of dark-haired women should be done in warm hues. This avoids hard lines and stereotypical styling. However, black-haired women look very appealing wearing lipstick in the darkest or brightest of colors.
Make-up for Black-Haired Women: The Shading Sets the Right Tone
For women with light skin the contrast between the complexion and the dark hair color may be huge. Enhancing this natural coloring could lead to a ghostly appearance. Unless the complexion is naturally brown or very lively, bronzer (tanning media) and blush should not be missing in any black-haired woman's make-up arsenal to add warmth and vibrancy to the complexion.
Your make-up should either emphasise the mouth or the eyes. Black mascara and eye shadow work best to draw attention to expressive eyes. Red and berry-colored lipstick can do the same for the lips.
