Chocolate Beauty!!

Makeup by Sheila McKenna

As a makeup artist working in the television and fashion industry I'm still meeting models and actors of color who still complain about not having their makeup done properly, by makeup artists who haven't mastered the artistry of darker skin. With most makeup lines on the market today expanding their lines to accommodate all complexions, there is NO excuse as to why we still have makeup artists who are not educating themselves. If you're a makeup artist who fits this category, please take the time to educate and gain knowledge to perfect your skills in doing makeup for ALL skin tones, from light to dark.

It's actually quite fun doing makeup on darker skin because the sky is the limit as to what colors you can use on the skin. We look great in bright orange, fuschia, green, yellows etc. Primary colors are our friends, and you can be as creative as you'd like. The colors you may want to shy away from are grays, silver and white. These colors tend to go a bit ash on darker skin.

Keep me posted and feel free to contact me with questions!
