Every black woman has difficulty finding a foundation that suits our skin tone, I’ve practically given up on this mission here in Brazil, it’s always two base tones offered by companies, where one tone is always too much clear, and another is completely dark, people exist coloration, as well as white skin, but this fact seems to be ignored or “sublimated” by cosmetics companies.
I never understood why
forgot about black skin, my skin tone is more yellowish, I never found a base that suited me, I always bought two tones where one was very light and the other too dark to mix, and yet not I hit, but why?
The answer is very clear, here in Brazil the products for afro and curly hair are complete new so as the makeup for black people, and this happen because we were never considered material for the beauty companies, for them we were never potential customers.
