When applying makeup to people with Indian skin tones, it's important to use the right shade and formulation of foundation. Beautiful skin tone can be achieved with the proper skin care and makeup routine.
According to makeup artist Gouri Kapur, achieving a perfect base is the best way to enhance Indian skin tones. Individuals with Indian skin tones often run into problems with color, texture and coverage. One sign that it may be the wrong shade is if the foundation appears grey. If this is the case, try switching to a foundation with yellow undertones. When foundation has a cakey or patchy appearance, it's not the appropriate texture. Patchy looking foundation can also be caused by the application of too much moisturizer, so try applying a thinner layer of lotion before using foundation. While foundation can enhance the beauty of Indian skin tones, it's not always necessary. For daytime, sometimes a BB Cream and a touch of concealer can be enough to create a natural, beautiful look.
Once the foundation or BB Cream has been perfected, Gouri Kapur suggests that Indian women finish their makeup routine with matte earthy colors, kohl eyeliner and mascara. This will enhance the eyes while creating an effortless, natural look.
