Black hair needs special care. It also takes well adapted make-up to enhance the special beauty of black hair. Dependent on the make-up, dark hair can make women appear mysterious and alluring or stunningly elegant. The stars in our gallery show the most beautiful hairstyles and make-up for women with black hair. See how your dark hair and make-up style can express your personality!

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 their complexion and dark hairstyle 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.

Make-up for Black-Haired Women: The Proper Sweep of the Eyebrows

Color your eyebrows a nuance lighter than your dark hair for a friendlier expression. Soft lines and soft brown shades are good choices.
