A Mishap at the MakeUp Counter Taught Me to Love My Dark Skin

Comments (6)
  1. I loved this so much! As a beauty consultant (for Clinique as well…don’t hate us all lol) I always have clients come to me that want to be much lighter and much darker than what they truly are. Women of all cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. No matter what, I really try to encourage them to feel comfortable in their own skin because we’re all beautiful, no matter what end of the color spectrum we are on. God made no mistakes!

  2. The layers that our self-love and acceptance are under are thick. Our elders, some of them, didn’t know it at the time, but they surely had shovels in their hands digging the burial plots for our buried self-esteem. As a light skinned/medium tanned woman, there is a misconception that all makeup matches me. This is not the case. Makeup is fun and necessary at times, but it sure can cause a detachment from the love of your natural face, if used with no breaks…that perfect airbrushed, concealed look is addictive. With that said, I love my skin and I love yours.

    i stopped wearing make up 5yrs ago bc it was so hard to find ne thg i thought was complimentary to my dark skin and blended well. i jist focused on healthy skon. i went to a mary kay thingy and the make up just horrified me. bt i was in a friend’s wedding not long ago and the makeup artist did a wonderful job (as nervous as i was) and recommended some thgs for me to try. im encouraged again bt nw w all the new tricks w makeup…im lost again! lol thx for sharing ur experience.

    I have never had any issues with my skin complexion – dark skinned with a red undertone.

    I find Mac foundation powder works perfectly with my complexion. The best I have come across and I have tried a few!

    I don’t wear make up unless its ChapStick & eyeliner. I’m not considered “dark” because im a lighter brown but I never look good in it. Blush, lipstick…I don’t care for it. I prefer people to see the real me anyway.
