Trusha Ruparell shares her favourite picks for dark skin tones 

I have always loved Leighton Denny nail colour, the formulas and shades are so impressive.  I’m a huge fan of nude nail colours and I’ve found the perfect shade for darker skin tones: Barely There is my absolute favourite that I will always have it in my polish collection.  I have discovered some great products perfect for dark skin tones all available on LD Boutique.  Leighton’s products are carefully thought out and it’s obvious a true beauty expert has created them.  

I have been a fan of the LIGHT & DARK Touch Up Solid for almost a year now, it’s so easy to use and long-lasting.  Lately though I have been wearing LIGHT & DARK Original EDP, which is the same scent as the Touch Up Solid but in a spray form.  In the summer months I tend to go for light floral scents, saving the musky scents for evenings and colder months.  However, LIGHT & DARK Original has a light musky scent which works for the day but still strong enough for the evenings.  I love the amber like scent mixed in with the musk, it is such a classic and elegant scent.

I have to admit, the Lip Duals by Leighton Denny are totally under-rated! On one side there is a stain that acts almost like a primer with a great pigment, creating a fine, matte layer of colour that the lipstick sticks to so it doesn’t budge. On the other end is a creamy lipstick that looks matte but doesn’t dry out your lips thanks to its anti-oxidant rich formula. Wearing the two products together means this lip product will stay on until it is removed which is what we’re all looking for in our lip colours.  The colour payoff is fabulous too! I love the shade Ravishing Red; a classic matte red that looks so pretty on darker skin tones.

Self Tan is something I have never had to worry about but I was super surprised when I fell in love with a product from Leighton’s Sun Believable range!  The Sun Believable Highlight Me Bronzing Shimmer is a golden based highlighter and bronzer packed with gold and copper micro-light reflective particles that give you a glow like no other.  I use it on my legs, arms, shoulders and back to give me that shimmery bronzed glow.  It also works as a brilliant liquid highlight on the highest points of your cheekbones. This is now my go-to body product for evenings out, thanks to its gorgeous luminous finish.
