On of my most asked questions by far has to be my skincare regimen or what make up I use. If we are being honest I really don't follow a strict protocol (maybe I should start) but here are a few products that I've been using for the past years and yes I swear by them.
It's no secret woman of a darker skin pigmentation have a harder task finding make-up that works well for their skin tone conveniently. Unless you're going to a specialty store forget it. I used to do some modeling work and I always took my foundation with me because I didn't want to look like I saw a ghost and my color drained from my face (go to your local drugstore and check the aisles)
Anyway, for that reason I was never really into using foundation all through college till I found something that worked and didn't cost much (I'm sure I would have paid whatever they were asking anyway)
I walked into my local CVS and decided to try this brand after countless unsuccessful and shall remain nameless brands. This is the Black radiance collection and I normally go for Liquid Foundation in cocoa bean (8415) which I think is their deepest color. It was love at first foundation application. I've recommended the brand to others and so far no complaints so yay!
It's very light and dries very fast so your face doesn't feel heavy. The left swipe is the 8415 and the right is 8414, its a shade lighter and I have added that to my make-up routine for creating dimension.
As you can see I've gone ahead and sampled their other products including the Cream to Powder foundation in Brown sugar/ cassonade (8916) which I normally use under my eyes, the Pressed Powder in Ebony (8615), the artisan baked blush in Warm Berry (8305) I recently picked up their creme eyeliner in Classic black and it has a long range staying power.
I have used their liquid waterproof eyeliner and it's also really good. I have to say I've tried a lot of their products including eye shadows and lipsticks and they are all amazing. I picked up some new lipshades for the fall and I do a review on them soon.
I hope this answers some of your questions.
