The photos are striking, but is that their true skin color or did they darken them?

I was thinking the same thing. Either way, the effect is stunning.

That was one model. Her name is Janica and she IS that dark based on other photos of her that google turned up using keyword search: Janica model. This is a stunning series and her complexion is flawless.

Janica Compton is not that dark, but the pictures are beautiful just the same. Filters are an AMAZING thing

Gorgeous! On a side note — all skin is beautiful, regardless of hue, if it’s taken care of. I’ve recently gotten more serious about my skin care and I swear, I look like I’m in 20’s again. Make up also pops better and I’ve got the healthy glow thing happening (throwing imaginary confetti!). This model has impeccable healthy skin and THAT (healthy skin) should be the aspiration of every lady.

I have no doubt the photographer did a little bit of photoshop work on the makeup and the model’s skin or used professional lighting with filters that made her skin look darker. However I have seen plenty of young black women that dark before so its not an issue.

The more you see light colors and different shades on Dark skin women, The more familiar you are with it and less biased. I support this.

I love her skin. Her color is so dark that it glows like a jewel when it catches the light, and her countenance is so smooth and flawless. 🙂 The contrast between her skin and the makeup is very interesting and artistic.

Black women are amazing. I’m often astounded by our beauty.

Stunning, especially that pink eye-shadow that looks like she has sapphire diamonds on her eyes. I give praise to her melanin for the beauty of those pictures.
