Finally, it’s a long-overdue night out with the girls. You got the outfit (aka your Joyce Dress) andyour shoes--check. Now it's time to top the look off with your flawless makeup, of course! Here are Iman Akilah's topBlack girl friendly makeup picks to help you complete the look with our Joyce Dress.

These 2020 Makeup Trends Mix the Bold with the New

This summer’s black girl makeup trends remind us of the bold 80s looks combined with the glowy, no-makeup look of modern times. It’s all about a radiant face and bold eyes as well as fresh, glowy skin for a nude, barely-there effect. 


Jackie Aina recently slayed a natural nude lookwith a warm lip and delicately flushed cheeks. This look is perfect for an everyday soft glam look for the summer. You can recreate it as your go-to glam to compliment your Joyce Dress by using some of Iman's favorite makeup picks. 

The Joyce dress complements these Black girl friendly makeup trends seamlessly with its subtle 80s influences. You can guarantee you’ll look classyand on-trend. It’s a win-win. Back in the day, big shoulders, dramatic sleeves, and voluminous hair were all the rage. 

The Joyce dress modernizes the 80s trends with its puff sleeve that isn’t too big or small. It has just enough volume to balance out the hips, creating a figure-flattering shape.

The Black Girl Friendly Makeup Picks to Wear With Joyce

Ready to match your Joyce dress with a sickening natural glam look? Take a look at our Joyce dress makeup picks below to get started! 



The limited-edition Jackie Aina x Anastasia Beverly Hills palette screams the 80s with its emphasis on high-shine. It has six metallics, six mattes, and two sparkling shades for you to create an arsenal of killer looks that will all seamlessly compliment your Joyce Dress!  


The 80s celebrated natural thick brows, and 2020 is too, sis! So, the next time you get your eyebrows done, just get a light touch up. Then, when it’s time to do your makeup, go for a simple product like the volumizing brow gel from Uoma. This long-lasting gel pomade lifts, shapes, and fills brows in one step! 


This year, our lips are eye-catchers in high shine glosses and pigment-rich stains. Play up the trends in a bold metallic color. Try a shade like Dream Chaser from the cult-favorite Black beauty brand, The Lip Bar. This purple gloss has a gold, iridescent shimmer and a silky finish. It’s such a bomb pairing with the Joyce Dress in Denim


Now, here’s where you want to go all out. Highly pigmented blush is essential for this summer. Try one of Fenty beauty’s new cream blushes for an airbrushed glow with staying power. Don’t forget to apply the blush high on your cheekbones and just under your nose for a feminine touch. 

Yay! Now you're all set to slay your Joyce Dress. Have you tried any of these products and if so, which is your favorite? If not, which are you dying to try?! Let us know!
