5 Best Make-up Brands for Black Women

The hardest thing about buying make-up as a black women is attempting to find your shade in a your local drugstore. I remember walking in the other day, attempting to pick up something from the Loreal counter and only finding one shade that came close to mine. I’d really like to tell someone that “cocoa” color does not work for all black women! We come in different colors too!

The most interesting part was when a saleswoman approached me and asked if I needed anything. I told her that I didn’t know what they had in their store that would match my skin color. After leading me around for a while she finally told me that I’d have to go to a larger department store to find something that would match my shade. “It’s a bit more expensive,” she said. “But I’m sure you’ll find something there.”

O-M-G. That’s what she said. But I actually heard….”Sorry, boo, but your shade isn’t important enough to be sold along with mainstream make-up so you’re just going to have to spend more money to get what you need. Which you probably don’t have. So you’re screwed.”

Thank God for Queen Latifah.
