Hey boo, what's the concept? Is it clean, or more elaborate?

Personally, I love working with deeper complexions, you can really get away with more highlighting and contouring. I like to keep the skin CLEAN. Match the undertone  well and add dimmension. For editorial, I like minimal pops of color and SHINE... Metallics are great as well. here are some of my favorite examples

Sam Fine is the god of makeup for women of color. I wish he had an accessible portfolio online but it might benefit you to google him smile

Also, I stumbled across this image, yesterday, while doing a search for a look.

And, I've always loved this image of Alek Wek.

The contrast of gold and bright colors against darker skin is so striking and fun!
