Represents tranquility, contentment, genuineness
Turquoise flatters darker skin tones fabulously, whether your beautiful African-American skin is a lighter mahogany or dark ebony. This cool yet vivid color also complements dark eyes. For a dazzling new look, try an eye shadow like CoverGirl® Eye Enhancers in Turquoise Tempest.
Represents confidence, liveliness, vitality
A little red goes a long way. The trick is finding the right shade for you — especially when it comes to lip color. If your skin is a darker tone, go for a red with blue undertones to complement the richness of your skin. If your skin is lighter, try a red with yellow undertones to reflect your natural warmth. Look for a variety of lip color shades from the CoverGirl Queen Collection. This rich and creamy lipstick delivers a polished look and vibrant color that lasts.
Represents sophistication, femininity, calmness
This light shade of purple is one of the season's most popular colors. Pair lavender with black or gray for a polished, professional look, or wear it with your favorite blue jeans for casual playfulness. Lavender also makes a fabulous eye shadow color. Try the CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3-kit shadow in Dance Party. It features a trio of purple shades, from light lavender to a deeper plum that's sure to make your gorgeous eyes pop.
Represents loyalty, wisdom, harmony
Indigo is a deep shade of blue that works wonders against dark skin and eyes. This rich color can be worn both day and night. For example, CoverGirl eye liner in Midnight Blue adds a hint of color without being overpowering.
