The dark skin type (heavily tanned skin) can best be described with the nuances of olive, reddish brown and dark brown. This skin is far from appearing pale or considered fair. People from southern countries have this skin tone. Many winter types get this skin tone from sun exposure. The beauty of these skin types shines best with our foundations Neutral 5 (Lovely Tan), Rose 5 (Cool Tan), Yellow 4 (Warm Sand) and Yellow 5 (Golden Brown). As always, you are welcome to test and select the right nuance in advance by ordering samples at home. We recommend the sample set DARK.
