Before you start applying anything, you need to find skin care products for your skin tone, namely the right bronzer. Most bronzers disappear on dark skin, so look for a cream-based formula with a lot of pigment. The trick is to find one intense enough, so you can see a subtle spot of color when you rub it on your cheek. Here's an example of one that isn't dark enough and here's one that looks just right.

Now we'll move on to application.

To make you skin look naturally warm all over, mix two skin care products together: your and foundation cream and bronzer. This will make the pigment seem to blend into the skin instead of just sitting on top of it. Though you can play around until you get the perfect ratio, a good starting point is to mix up a blob that's three parts foundation to one part bronzer.

After you apply your usual skin care products like eye cream and moisturizer, apply the foundation bronzer mixture to your skin with your fingertips. You'll want to add an additional color to your cheeks and bronzer makes the perfect blush for darker skin tones. It gives you that subtle beautiful flush you get on a hot summer day. Just blend on the apples of your cheeks in a small circular motion.

Don't forget about your eyes. A natural glow will spread all over your skin so that means your eyelids need to be luminous too. To add sparkle without adding a lot of color, blend a sheer cream gold shadow along your lashline with a thin eye shadow blush and smooth up into the crease.

Bronzer as blush is a tip I will remember when doing someone's makeup who has darker skin.
