I know this is the AA Forum but there is no beauty forum on here:( and all the other websites are mainly dedicated to Caucasian women.
I work for Mac Cosmetics I LOVE makeup and have been an artist for 6years. I find it so hard for black women to find certain shades of makeup or to create/Recreate certain looks.
Is anybody interested in Makeup Tutorials because IF SO I would love to post some. Or if you have any questions I would be honored to answer them.

I love MAC's primer. And I'm obsessed with MAC lipgloss "Take a hint". I trying to find a foundation for oily skin. Most foundations I have used works for a short time before my face has a shine to it. Any suggestion?

Mac is great however. They are not the best for foundations their products contain Titanium Dioxide that turns black skin grey:(
The best I have found is: Fashion Fair's True finish Liquid makeup 20$ at Macy's it is a tint. Before applying Try cleaning you skin with St Ives Clear pore cleanser 4$ at Walmart Stay away from moisturizer as you skin is not dry and produces excess moisture. For a heavier coverage Apply a lose powder on top of the Fashion Fair's True finish Liquid makeup Although I would not recommend this for everyday (it might appear too heavy) just for the club to avoid oily skin:)Try fashions fair perfect finish good luck:)

I think Fashion Fair's foundations's are cheap & turns everyone red faced, just too much red dye in them. If oily skin is the problem then use a powder/foundation such as Lancome's Dual Finish (use it dry, do not wet the sponge), or Revlon's Colorstay with Softflex is a great choice. For normal combination skin Christian Dior's "Diorskin SPF12" is awesome, so natural & flawless looking, & it's yellow based not red. Comes in shades for women of color even darkskinned women. It cost like the devil at $41/bottle but a dime sized application is all it takes, so it last forever.

She would still have oily skin even if she did use powder That would eventually clog her pores Thus creating break outs....Remember clean skin is clear skin and CD is geared towards the Caucasian skin type (I used to work there) Black people come in more colors than just Brown, yellow and black I would go with the fashion fair any makeup you overly apply will have a effect on your tone whether grey or red eliminate this problem by using a minimal amount I would recommend I tint......

And i have primer. I don't know how to use Primer. Do i put the Primer on first? And then the mascara?

And i love eyelashes. When i don't feel like putting mascara on.. i wear MAC Eyelashes. But I forgot the eyelashes that i get from MAC. I try to by the ones that are not to dramatic.

Ok...I have a strange make-up problem. My skin on my face is dry..it tends to peel. But...if I wear foundation it gets shiny! How can that happen? And what do I do about it?

Also...what do you think of permanent eyelash extensions? I have been thinking about getting them done.

I think this thread is a GREAT idea!
