This Summer's 5 Biggest Makeup Trends for Melanin Skin Tones

by Delali Cosmetics on June 25, 2021

 Melanin is Magical

It’s the reason us brown skinned sisters age more slowly, wrinkle less, and have built in sun protection (which doesn’t mean we don’t need additional sunscreen or sunblock)

But for many years, makeup for brown queens was excluded from the beauty world. Heck, finding a foundation dark enough to match your skin was like a scavenger hunt through the beauty isles, and you’d be very lucky to find products made with clean ingredients.

The good news is, nowadays, there are many cosmetic brands that cater to a wider variety of skin tones, allowing you to find the best makeup made from organic products.

Now that makeup lovers have a wider variety of products to choose from, we’ve rounded up 5 of this summer’s biggest makeup trends, especially for melanin skin tones.

Whether your go-to look is very minimal or you prefer to go all in with liner and color, there’s no shortage of trends to choose from this season.


No-makeup Makeup

The no-makeup-makeup look is here to stay. This summer, it’s all about lightweight base makeup and next to natural skin so it’s even more crucial to have an effective skincare routine.

Want to step out in barely-there makeup? Our HD Liquid Foundation is the OG when it comes to foundations that leave skin looking like skin.

This lightweight, oil-free foundation with anti-creasing properties will leave your skin with a natural finish. The moisturizing aspect of this foundation will help to smooth fine lines and hydrate your skin for days.


Multicolor Eyes

Since wearing face masks became the new normal, the trend is heavy on the eyes and light on the lips. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the eyeshadows and use all the colors of the rainbow for a daring look that stands out.

If you’re all in on experimenting with color, why not opt for our Always Classy 15-Shades Palette made from natural, skin-loving ingredients. Our skin absorbs what we put on it, so we only want the best.

This palette contains 15 nude shades that are perfect for day and evening looks. Just remember to first apply a neutral-colored primer to prevent whatever shadows you layer on top from fading or smearing.


Natural Falsies

Are you noticing a pattern here? False eyelashes are a super easy way to enhance your natural beauty, without the hassle. Try out long wispy lash extensions for a ‘natural’ look or a pair of dramatic lash strips while wearing light coverage makeup to draw attention to your eyes.


Sunkissed Goddess

Nothing screams "summer" like sun-kissed skin. To achieve that blinding glow, we recommend applying a pressed highlighter.

Pair this with a bronzer and a light coverage foundation for the base for a sheer, dewy finish.

Reach for our Liquid Illuminator to enhance your natural skin complexion. Not only is it creamy and really pigmented but you can wear it underneath your foundation for a radiant finish or you can apply it on top of your foundation to bring emphasis to your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose.

We packed this smooth pearlescent formula with skin breathing ingredients for when the temperatures rise.  

We’re obsessed with both shades, Rusty Copper, a soft pink-gold formula that’s perfect for our light/fair to medium skin toned sisters, and Gold, which best complements and enhances medium-brown to very dark skin complexions.


Graphic Eyeliner

If one of your signature looks is a cat eye then you’ll probably love this trend. Simply draw a clean line just above the crease of your eye with a fine-tip liner, then connect it to your wing.


That’s a wrap!

There you have it, my beautiful ones. Dark skin isn’t just beautiful - it’s special, too. And we’ve just shared the trendiest makeup looks for the season with you so that you can step outside in all your melanin glory.
