Day & Night Makeup looks for Wheatish Skin

Wheatish skin tone is the most commonly seen skin tone in India. Ive decided to tell you about Wheatish skintone, Do’s & Dont’s and Day to Night look for Wheatish skin tone.

What is Wheatish Skin Tone?

Wheatish means light brown coloured! So Wheatish Skintone is basically medium toned skin that is neither too fair or too dark!
In terms of Makeup, Wheatish skintone the skin has a yellow-orange undertone. Which in simple terms means basically the skin reflects a yellowish orange tone from within.

Things to Do while doing Makeup for Wheatish Skin.

  • Most of the wheatish or darker skin tones haves oily skin type so use a water based foundation.
  • Use gold toned eyeshadows or highlighters. Warmer tones blend better with wheatish skin.
  • Use lipstick shades like Burgundy, Maroon, Rust & Mauves.
  • Use darker toned blushes like plum shades & deep red. Bronzers too work best with wheatish skin.

Dont’s for Wheatish Skin-

  • The first Biggest Mistake which is made for wheatish skintone is that we try to make it look fairer, which is wrong! Always use a matching shade as your skin tone & concentrate more on an even finish rather than making the skin look fairer (which will eventually look grey & worse)
  • Do not use silver eyeshadow or silver toned highlighters. These will just look garish on wheatish skin.
  • Do not use bright Orange or pale pink lipsticks.
  • Do not use light pink blushes as these will not blend or add the correct flush of colour to the cheeks.

So, today I’m going to show you a Day & a Night Look. My friend Tanvi here has been an absolute sport to have come down to my salon & model these looks for me.

Excuse my not-so-glam state! But while beautifying others I don’t bother about myself :p

First is the Day Makeup look which I transform into a Night Makeup look.

    1. Sure I can! For affordable makeup try out Maybelline as its of good quality as well! On Nykaa as well u have good brands that will also go well with darker tones so do check those out.
      Don’t use cheap makeup as its your face and if you have a bad reaction then that could lead you to even bigger issues. Invest well on your face 🙂
