Honestly, it’s hard to test make up for darker skin and most cosmetic companies only have a crappy choice to choose from anyway. So, of course, I get my advice from REAL people that are close to my skin tone. These ladies highlight makeup and skincare thoroughly and give you the scoop on prices and bang for your buck.
Web – Danielle Gray of the Style and Beauty Doctor
I met Danielle at Blogalicious but had always been a fan of her blog The Style & Beauty Doctor. She gives great advice on color selection for eye shadows and foundations. She also has a great wealth of knowledge of skincare where she’s educated herself with research from dermatologists.
Instagram – Felicia Benson from @ThisThatBeauty
I actually discovered Felicia from ThisThatBeauty.com randomly on Instagram. She showed a picture of her using a facial mask and from then I fell in love with her posts. Her skin is always glowing and she loves to share the skincare products she’s trying. Check out her website for reviews and her little adorable one Phoebe.
Video – Destiny Godley from YouTube
I recently (this year) started watching Destiny’s videos after coming across one of her color correction makeup tutorials. I was looking for color corrected for my dark circles and found her recommendations here. She’s a pleasure to watch and gives makeup techniques on how to apply makeup to dark skin.
