For some reason it has been assumed that you can only get a full face of makeup, nail polish, and skin care from mainstream brands. This is simply untrue and there are several Black-Owned brands that literally have everything!
I decided to do a series of “wishlists” with items that I would like to try from various Black-Owned brands, to bring awareness, and because I undoubtedly want these items. For the first wishlist, I will solely focus on foundation and concealer as that is one of the most important products you will apply. I hope you enjoy this series and are able to find some staples to add to your own collection. Let’s get into it!
Danessa Myricks Beauty| Vision Cover Cream $28
If you are unsure of your foundation shade but want to experiment before committing, go on over to Camera Ready Cosmetics, and get a few samples for $5 each. A little goes a long way with this product so my full coverage girls will love this!
AJ Crimson Beauty| Match Me Sample Kit $35
12 shades of signature foundation plus Banana Creme Highlighter, Deep Peach Corrector # 102 and #105 corrector
Blacminerals Cosmetics| Concealer $18
Unlike the Vera Moore concealer above, this concealer is a cream. It comes in a stick form (with cute packaging might I add).
If you want to try before committing to a full size, a sample is only $2 and can be found here.
SKNYDIP Cosmetics| Foundation in the shade Boardwalk After 6 | $11
Eleven dollars for a foundation? I. am. sold! You don’t have to tell me much more unless they don’t carry my shade. And I definitely won’t have to worry about that problem with this brand! I have heard that the shade comparison chart could use a bit of work, so consider buying a sample before buying the full size. And I almost forgot to mention, the sample is $2.
Switch it up and try something new. You won’t regret it! Happy shopping ❤
