10 Makeup Tips for African-American Skin

  

9. Avoid Eyeliner on the Bottom Lid

A dramatic eye look requires the use of eyeliner. But that doesn’t mean your liner should ever touch your bottom lid, especially if it’s black, brown or any other dark color.

Thick, heavy liner rimming the bottom of your eyes only makes them look smaller and tired. This is true for all women, but especially those with a caramel or brown complexion. Stick to your upper lash line and the outer corner of your eye instead.
