Your daughter can use an all-over primer for shine control and switch to concealer jars for blemishes and discolorations instead of coating her face with cover up. She can apply the concealer with a flat, rounded foundation brush and feather outwards. It should last all day in normal temperatures as long as she primes first. Have her chose a concealer that is one shade darker and warmer than her face. As long as she blends the corners of each blemish, it should look great.
Remember, dark skin is usually WARM, stay away from cool and ashy tones. That means look for orange/red-based products and NO blue/pink-based concealers or foundations.
Also, if she wants in-depth advice, most salons offer basic makeup lessons for about $50.
