I mean really? Are white girls the only race of women in this country? I go into a make up store and there are 30 shades of make up for a white girl, not 1 for darker complected people. NOT 1! Black people and Hispanics make up the second largest group. Blacks have been here since the whites got here, could you please make us a shade of make up. HELLO? Can I just 4 shades please , at least? I know you *(makeup companies) are busy coming up with more shades for white chicks, but can you take a break and remember the OTHER women in this country please?

well part of the reason is that white is the dominant race in this country so makeup companies are going to cater to them first. also white girls usually wear more makeup than black girls do. well we wear it too but not as much as white girls do tho. we don't wear foundations/powders as much but maybe its because they don't make it in our color? they just don't think about black folks like that
you have to REALLY look. also try brands like iman, fashion fair and black opal. queen latifah's covergirl queen collection was good but I heard they discontinued it? if they did imma be pissed
i remember I finally found my exact foundation shade from clinique of all brands. mac isn't as good as its hyped up to be because they think all black women are an NC50 or something..yeah I feel your frustration. that's why I am so diligent about eating fruits/veggies and drinking water so my skin can look OK naturally because I just can't depend on makeup and I refuse to buy 3 foundations and mix them all together. I'm a medium brown with an unusual undertone so its hard for me to find my match0
