I think I should start a campaign that asks makeup companies to create a more diverse palette of foundation and face powder colors for black women who are are the darker side. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen a makeup like that had only 1-2 shades that fall in the dark brown category. I’m so tired of seeing sisters who look like they are wearing a mask that is 2-3 shades lighter than their skin tone (chalky and sometime orange).
What do you think? Would you be willing to write and email, tweet, letter, etc for this effort?
Um…I might need to throw in a request or two for more pigment in eyeshadows as well as eye shadow primer made for black women. Some of the best primer out there is beige, and that doesn’t work as well as it could for brown girls.
