The purpose of make-up is not to change your entire look, but rather to enhance your natural features. Today, we're sharing beginner's make-up tips for women of color:
Step 1: Get To Know You
Before you can buy make-up and skin care products, is to first know your skin color, skin tone and the best skin-care routine for your needs. There are warm and cool skin tones, and there are dry, sensitive, oily and combination skin types. The tone will determine the type of colors that will work for you, while the skin type will determine what your skin care regimen would work best for you.
Step 2: Starting Your Make-Up Kit
Organize some containers to store your make-up in. You can use a cosmetic bag or a plastic box or even a drawer.

Step 3: Make-Up & Skin Care Go Together
Quality skin care ensures that your skin stays smooth and blemish free. It is particularly important to guard against dry, ashy skin. It would be a great idea to invest in a good quality skin-care kit that contains a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. It you want, you could also invest in night cream and eye cream. Using quality skin-care products will clear away excess make-up at the end of the day, leaving your skin fresh to be able to rejuvenate while you sleep.

Step 4: Don't Be Afraid to Glow
Some women of color tend to stay away from the brighter colors, preferring to stick with brown or black. However, peach, apricot, berry and soft blues and greys can really bring out your best features, making you glow. In this video, Nicole Williams shares how to find foundation for black skin.
