I have always considered myself a makeup novice, a keen interest in the art of applying makeup. And a fair amount of my free time goes to watching Youtubers perfect the art online. I always find myself circling back to finding POC YouTubers. It’s important to me to know what products work on darker skin tones because let’s be real, brands seem to think that having four-hundred light shades and two dark shades are acceptable.
With good reason, I had restrained posting reviews of award show fashion due to the lack of diversity for some time now. People of colour have graced the carpets of award shows before. People of colour have also if not more, worked harder to be there. Yet when the winner is announced, the white nominee walks up to the stage to collect that award. I need to see more representation. We need to see more representation.
