Make Up First ® Pro Shop: Best Makeup for Deeper Skin Tones

This week we have created a list of our favorite makeup brands and products for deep skin tones and complexions.



“First” by Make Up First ® (maqpro)

“First” by Make Up First (maqpro) has a selection of foundation palettes as well as corrector palettes that are created for deeper complexions. We recommend using the “First” by Make Up First Mixer to sheer down product. The mixer also moisturizes and primes the skin — or add it on the high points on the face for a dewy finish!

Kevyn Aucoin Loose Shimmer Shadows

(use on eyes and high points of the face for an illuminator!)


AJ Crimson

AJ Crimson, former Head of Makeup for the Wendy Williams Show, has recently added new products to his makeup line. We find the foundation palettes and corrector duos not only cover the skin, but make everyone look flawless!


Why we love it? The beeswax, vitamin E, and natural oil ingredients allow the product to effortlessly glide on the skin for a smooth finish.


AJ Crimson lipstick shades  work on every skin tone. Our summer favorites are #SipsTea, Bondage, Round Two, and Subculture (featured left to right), available here.
