How to Use Demi Colour for Dark Skin
When we are talking about dark skin tones, there are a few things we need to remember. Unlike lighter skin tones, the color differences in dark skin tones aren’t as dramatic. This actually makes it easier in many ways to filter out distractions!
Now, another important point to remember when we are discussing how to use Demi Colour for dark skin is the color codes that you will see on the products. Since Demi Colour uses the color wheel and color science to filter out distractions on your skin, it didn’t make sense to use names for the individual shades. Instead, there are color codes for each color. Each color corresponds to a letter.
- R= Red
- Y= Yellow
- O= Orange
- B= Blue
- G= Green
- V= Violet
There are also some shades that are a combination of two colors, and therefore will include 2 letters. For example, OY will be a shade that contains both orange and yellow.
Understanding Color Edits for Dark Skin
Along with these letters that are used as color codes, Demi Colour also numbers the shades to differentiate between the saturation of each shade. These go from 1-7. Any shade with a 1 will be the least saturated, while a 7 shade will be the most saturated color. In Demi Colour, the 1 color shades are used for brightening the skin, and the shades that are numbered 3-7 are used for building color while filtering out distractions. These more saturated shades are great for using on your cheeks to add a natural flush!
How to Choose the Correct Shades for Dark Skin Tones
Now that you know all about Demi Colour’s color codes, it’s time to talk about how to choose the correct shades for you. Lucky for you, I am a trained Senit Demi Colour Artist, and I can help choose the correct shades for every skin tone!
