Foundation for dark complexion
Makeup always begins with the foundation. The makeup base should be proper. Liquid based foundation should be preferred. Dark skin has a tendency to shine so a cream based foundation will make it look more shinny. The foundation should not be of lighter shade than skin as it will make it look like a mask. Uses make up powder that is almost translucent or slightly tinted. It will absorb the oil and give a shine free look.
Eye makeup tips for dark skin
For eye makeup avoid powdery and bright shades. You should go for dark browns, copper, prunes and burgundy. Dark metallic colors will also look good. If you are going for a party you can apply translucent powder over the eye shadow for smooth and subtle glow. For day look apply brown or grey eyeliner. To boost up lashes apply mascara.

For lips you should go for matte finish and not the glossy ones. You can choose shades of browns, burgundy, berry shades and plums. Other colors, which suit dark skin, are shades of beige, soft pink and gold.
