Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer TOFFEE
A major skin concern of most black girls is skin discolorations. We have to go through a lot of mornings and nighttime routine just to get our skin as even as possible and then the slightest sun exposure or any night we mistakenly go to bed with makeup brings us back to square one.
That’s why we swear by concealer. Concealer helps to cover those stubborn blemishes most foundations cant cover and also help in color correcting those dreadful dark circles under the eyes and around the mouth area.
For dark spots and unwanted pigmentation, a pigment correcting treatment is an important beauty must-have. Lytera has released a pigment control and diminishing product to remove dark spots and produce a beautifully smooth and even complexion.

For some reason, most black people think because we have melanin we are therefore immune to sunburn or sun-related skin issue. Black skin may possess more pigmentation making it less susceptible to sun damage but this does not mean that you are not at risk at all.
Daily UV exposure accelerates the aging process, increases wrinkle formation, and dries your skin. Investing in a good moisturizer with an SPF must be applied regularly and provide hydration and optimum levels of protection against intense sunlight.

Sun is a major cause of most skin problems from under eye dark circles to early wrinkles and even skin cancer. Sunscreen should be an important part of your daily routine.

NEW HUDA BEAUTY Easy Bake Loose Baking and Setting Powder - Kunafa

To have a perfect finish, every girl should use a setting powder. Whether you have a dry, combination, or oily skin. The amount of time you allow the powder set depends on your skin type. You only need to set the makeup for a few seconds if you have dry skin and up to 10 mins if you have oily skin.
Every black girl should use a banana setting powder to avoid looking ashy like most translucent powders tend to do. Powders like Ben Nye banana powder, Sacha buttercup setting powder, ColourPop banana powder, HudaBeauty’s kunafa setting powders should be your go-to.
