One of the things I’m noticing is that the more “we” speak, the more “they” are listening. Just like with the natural hair movement, the revolution for cosmetic companies to create more than one “deep” shade of foundation is slowly coming. Until then we are limited, but when it comes to brands like Black UP Cosmetics you are at home.
Black Up is a brand targeted specifically towards brown girls. Whether you are light brown or black brown there is a shade for you. With three different foundation formulas, they offer 15-18 shades for us to choose from. They are lightweight, creamy, and non-cakey cosmetics that enhance the true color of your own skin. Black Up solves problem #2 that women of color have, and that’s setting makeup; therefore, they offer a two-way cake powder in 12 shades. The France-based company understands that we come in all different shades, so they created a sheer powder that accommodates several ranges of skin tones; and they’ve hit the ball out of the park! Now we can set that amazing foundation with a powder that doesn’t cause us to look ashy.
Black Up doesn’t stop there. Their color cosmetics are a WOW- rich, intense, textured-pigmented colors for the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Black Up Cosmetics makes it effortless for a woman to wear color and feel confident. Also, if you’re having any trouble creating a flawless look, they offer you the right tools needed with their line of luxury brushes.
Right now you can find Black Up Cosmetics online at www.blackupcosmetics.com. Their pricing is on the higher end, but you get what you pay for. Due to the high quality of the products, a little goes a long way; therefore they will last a long time. We have something that we can call our own, and when we wear these beautiful cosmetics the comfort and confidence we receive is priceless. Invest in yourself, you are worth it!
