Mac Cosmetics Blush in Sketch $22contour-products-dark-skinThis is a deep purple shade, and trust me you need it. Seriously. I use it as a blush and an eyeshadow and it’s a must in my kit. It looks friggen AMAZING as a contouring shade on dark skin. You can’t go wrong with it. I promise!

BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Contour Palette- $18


The BH Cosmeics Contour Palette is a solid contouring kit, with shades dark enough for the darkest of skin. However, I will warn you that it is a true contouring kit and will provide a deep/cool contour. If you are looking for warmth, stay away. Check out my full review HERE.

MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Palette in Dark $40

This palette won’t work for ladies who are darker than a MAC N50, but it has a nice warm-toned chocolate brown that’s perfect for a soft contour.MAC-Studio-Conceal-and-Correct-Palette-Dark

Becca Cosmetics Perfect Skin Mineral Powder Foundation in Cacao $40


While it’s on the pricier side, the Becca Cosmetics Perfect Skin Mineral Powder Foundation in Cacao is definitely dark enough for dark skin. It’s not a warm shade, so you’ll need to add a little bronzer to it afterwards, but it feels like silk going on. See how I use it HERE.

COVERGIRL Queen Natural Hue Compact Foundation, True Ebony 555 $9

dark skin contour product

While it’s formulated as a foundation the COVERGIRL Queen Natural Hue Compact Foundation in True Ebony is one of my favorite contouring products. Not only is it a deep brown, but it’s also warm so it gives a great contouring and bronzing effect in one. I like to apply it with the Eyes Lips Face Scultping Brush.It’s only $6 and it’s perfect for contouring.


Cover FX Contour Kit in N Deep $48

While I’ll admit the Cover FX contour kit in NDeep is dark enough for dark skin, the formula isn’t so hot for oily skin. If you don’t suffer from oily skin, it’s a keeper, but if you’re a greasy girl stay away. Check out my full review with demo HERE.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in Deep $40

I actually own this in the “medium” shade, but will soon be exchanging it for this kit. While the medium kit is indeed dark enough for dark skin, I like the idea of seeing even more deep options in the “deep” kit. While I haven’t yet reviewed this product, I will say that the consistency is on the tough side. So you’ll need a sturdy brush to pick up the product. It’s also great for girls with oily skin so no worries there.
