8 Contour Products for Dark Skin
If you are a dark skin makeup enthusiast, you know far too well the challenge of finding products that carry shades deep enough to contour our skin. I’ve searched high and low for products to do just that and my research has paid off. Check out my list of 8 Contouring Products for dark skin.
Mac Cosmetics Blush in Sketch $22This 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!
A warm cocoa brown that is beyond pigmented and MADE for women who look like us. You need it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
