Most online lighting tutorials never really teach how to light dark skinned people. I noticed that black/dark skin reacts differently to light. 

Any tips on how I could light to get the look/feel of Naomi Harris in Skyfall in the scene where she shaves Bond's beards. And also other tips when lighting dark people.

God bless.

I did nothing special in the scene you mention. I rarely do.

This» may be of interest to you; goes into really great detail about the "why" and not just the "how".
