“You have a dark skin tone, stick to a plum shade. “ It’s time to say ta-ta to these beauty myths and say hello to experimenting with color. We explore the lip and nail colors that help you make a splash and rock that golden Hispanic skin!
Poppy Red – Thought this color was only for the fair complexioned? Dark and warmer skin tones can rock this shade of red too, but go neutral on the rest of your make up. Choose a poppy red that has a yellow or brown undertone like the Dior Blazing Red for that perfect pout. For your nails the Dior Vernis nail lacquer in Trafalgar and Chanel in Dragon are an awesome duo.
Pink passions – Every girl has to have a shade of pink in her cosmetic case. Skip lip colors that are super screamingly PINK….or those that have blue undertones. Color your lips with a cranberry pink or a lighter warm rose pink like the Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Voile de Rose. It’s just the right shade of pink for you. Your nails will look great in the Tom Ford Toasted Sugar pink nail color.
Tangerine Tang – Orange and tangerine can never go wrong on Hispanic skin. We love the Sephora + Pantone Universe Tangerine Tango Cream Lipstick for that tangerine fresh look on your lips. For your nails go for the Butter London Nail Laquer in Silly Billy, MAC Nail Lacquer in ‘Styleseeker’ and Tom Ford Beauty Nail Lacquer in Ginger Fire. Tangerine looks lovely this pumpkin season!
Berrylicious – Skip the plum and stick to Berry! Rich violet shades obviously compliment the Hispanic skin tone. You can sport this lip and nail color at any time of the day or night. Add a little shimmer to really stand out. Try out the Korres Raspberry Antioxidant Liquid Lipstick in Berry to make a berrylicious statement. For your nails enjoy the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored High-Shine Nail Lacquer in Ultraviolet and Dior Vernis in Liquorice and Lancôme Vernis in Love in Purple Fiction.
Nearly nude – Nude lipsticks are an absolute must have. They are cool and never go out of fashion. A warm shade such as Rouge Dior Lip Color in Angelique Beige is perfect for Hispanic skin. For your nail manicure try the OPI Los Angeles Latte and SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in UnComplicated and Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored High-Shine Nail Lacquer in Delphine.
Get a little reckless and try out nail colors such as yellow and emerald (which is the new black this season). Embrace charcoal greys, and inky blues! Make color your best friend and rock that warm honey color.
