My coloring is similar to yours: MAC nw45. I think dark-skinned girls should avoid pastels (especially pastel cosmetics ... yuck!). I'd suggest a deeper shade.

Coral and Sangria are the best options, hate pastels. I am NC42

My skin is the same color, and my perfect red is NARS in cabaret (I think it's discontinued, but you can still find it on the NARS website).

Brown-based reds and burgundies work for me.


Also, try the black/african makeup thread!

Thanks for the link to the other thread. I'll have to try the NARS when I get back to the States
