Dark brown skin is best complemented by an apricot blush.
Dark brown skin is common for individuals of various ethnicities such as Latinos and people from Mediterranean countries. This skin is not prone to acne, scarring, sunburn or dryness. It is less likely to wrinkle than the skin of lighter individuals, although the wrinkles that appear are usually deeper. This skin type should be moisturized daily with a product that includes sunscreen.
People with brown skin can have green eyes.
Individuals with dark brown skin can claim any number of ethnic heritages. People of Mediterranean origin, who are from Italy, Spain or Turkey, tend to have olive skin tones. Scandinavian countries like Finland and Norway also produce olive skin, as do Native Americans, Latinos and some African Americans.
Some claim that this skin type is the most desirable skin tone as it is easy to care for. Olive skin is rarely very dry, nor is it as sensitive as lighter skin or as acne-prone. As the skin is dark, the scars and marks that occur are less noticeable than on lighter skin.
Dark-skinned individuals tend to wear less makeup than lighter-skinned individuals.
As people with dark brown skin tend to have a very even skin tone, they are less likely to have visible scars or wrinkles. These individuals often wear less makeup than their fair-skinned counterparts and may not even need foundation or concealer. Instead, blushes and bronzers are recommended to enhance the wearer’s natural glow.
Dark brown skin is less likely to wrinkle than fair skin.
One of the downsides and benefits of having dark olive skin is that it doesn’t burn easily in the sun. This is beneficial for obvious reasons, but because it burns less easily, dark-skinned individuals are often less likely to apply sunscreen. Although sunburn is less common, the sun’s ultraviolet rays can still cause damage to the skin, even if the skin is not visibly burned. This can result in premature aging or skin cancer. To prevent this and protect the skin, a moisturizer with sunscreen should be applied daily.
If taken care of, dark skin tones, such as brown and dark olive skin tones, age more slowly than their lighter counterparts. Fair skin is more likely to show wrinkles at an earlier age than brown skin. People with dark brown skin don’t seem to have wrinkles until later in life, but when these wrinkles do appear, they are usually much deeper than the fine lines or wrinkles that appear on fair skin. Also, later in life, dark skin is more likely to sag and sag than fair skin.
