Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. :)

I am spank brand new around these parts, and very new to makeup. I'm a workaholic who hasn't paid much attention to myself and I want to change that.

What are some great sites, resources, and brands for people of color? Any other LJ communities to recommend also, is great.

I know it sounds weird, but I have no idea what skin color I have. It seems to change like a chameleon. How can I find out for sure what type of makeup I need? I went to Belk but they tried pushing some Gucci makeup or something and I can't afford that shit! I'm willing to buy quality brand but not on the highest end, if I can help it. Unless it is on sale, of course. :)

Thanks so much for any help.

Check out this link and if you have any other guides of warm and cool by all means post.


What do you think about this? My makeup advisor told me I am a cool because warm colors make my face look dull and lifleless. I believe her and I enjoy colors that are berries, blue-black and dark browns. It works for me

Im so glad there is a community like this.
Im definately going to advertise this around.

My name is Allyson, I live in Tallahassee Florida,
and I got to FAMU (currently the number 1 University for Black students)
I enjoy using makeup. I know Im not the prettiest girl out there, but
I dont care. Ill post a pic or two of me with some of my makeup on.

Its real simple and doesnt stand out too much. Maybe Ill mke a tutorial or something.
But Ive never done that before, so Ill save that for later

Okay, I can see this community isn't very active but I thought I'd try anyway.

I have medium-tan skin and thick lips, so it's hard to find a lip color that doesn't make me look like a clown. I'm trying to find a natural color that can go with many looks since my hair color changes constantly, but something that will make my lips stan out a little since I like eye makeup and I don't want to look too top heavy.

Here are some pictures of me without makeupCollapse )

Since no one's said anything yet (except the mod, o'course), what's everyone's favorite tip/trick? One of my favorites is using two different colors of eyeliner (I'll post a picture if anyone wants to see what I mean).

After noticing that there aren't ANY makeup communities for those of color.. I decided to create one!!! So post pictures of beautiful makeup! Post tutorials!! Post reviews of products you used!!!! :)  Also tell others about the community, but do NOT spam... b/c that would just make the community look bad.  :P  If you want to make banners for the community, that would be awesomes!
