Maybe a tip for a coloured skin who loves to use CHANEL......

Mix a little of the Soleil Tan the Chanel with lipstick Rouge Hydrabase Rouge Noir, thats the base...

Use the lipstick on your cheeks as a blush and also on your lips.

Crayon Yeux Berry or Navy on your eyelids, Inimitable on your lashes and you look FAB!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone. I have dark brown skin as well.I'm not sure if this was answered in the thread already but I wanted to know where some of you go to get your face primers and eyeshadow primers(do they come in colors for dark skin or are they supposed to go on clear)?

^I used Sephora's primers and Makeup4ever too. I also liked the orange base from the latter which gave a glowy finish.
I might get it again actually!

Face primers wise, Armani has been really good for me so far. I tried GOSH but it just felt way too heavy.

I haven't tried any eyeshadow primers yet but I was also wondering whether they all show up in that powdery white hue.

^ I like the MAC shadesticks as an eyeshadow primer because they're easy to apply and come in different colors.

I would definitely call myself the Queen of Nude Lips as I tend to like dramatic eye makeup with nude lips. I have sooo many nudes, it's a sin!

However, here are a few of my favorite nudes off the top of my head in no particular order. (I am acutally about to do a "Fave Nudes" video on my youtube channel.)

Kevyn Aucoin- Vesuvian lipgloss
Kevyn Aucoin- Caremellina lipgloss
NARS- Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer
NARS- Hustler lipgloss
MAC- Revealing Gloss
MAC- Beaux Gloss
Diorgloss- Linen Beige #317
Bobbi Brown gloss- Suede
Revlon Beyond Natural Lipgloss- Spice & Deep Spice

Once again, these are off the top of my head. I'd have to actually look in my kit to see. I know there are more, but hope these help. Some of them I've not been able to find anymore.

Sad news.
Happy to report that two years later, I still see the IMAN line in Walmarts and drugstores in the US. I believe I still saw it last year or so in Paris at the Sephora on Champs-Elysees, no?

i know Anastasia is supposed to be the best brand but i only saw blonde/brunette pencil shades. i think the brown would be to light as i recently dyed my hair jet black and would need the brows to match...
any suggestions would be appreciated
Try Make Up Forever Eyebrow Corrector in #3. It's a dark brown shade that comes in a tube and you apply it with a stiff brush. It's one of my favorites to use on brows!
