If you want very darked skinned to appear lighter, remember not to wear light pastel colors
especially white. Wear dark colors in make-up and clothing.
Actually mauves and pinks look good on people of darker complexions (no neon pink on lips though):) Especially in clothes.
It also depends on what shade your skin is, there are varying degrees of tans and browns in which various light shades of blues, jades, and also silver & gold shine (if applied correctly) look great.
