I am by no means the darkest skinned girl around. However, i am Puerto Rican so when summer comes along or i decide its time to hit a tanning bed i can get pretty brown.
I usually find a bronzer that suits my skin tone, the kind that doesn't make me look fake and orange. I hate seeing those girls who go tanning and then choose the makeup that makes them look more like a pumpkin than an actual person. I know Halloween is around the corner people, but for an everyday look id rather not look like a jack-o-lantern.
For some reason whenever i find a color that matches my skin tone best, i get the privilege of using it for a few months and then they discontinue the darkest color. This pisses me off, im picky about the shit i put on my face since i break out easily, especially during "that" time of the month. I don't need my skin to be more oily than it is, and proactive doesn't work for me, just ask the cysts that decide to make an appearance on my face every few years.
So my question is, what do black people do? If i cant find a the right dark color makeup for my face, do I have to special order it or something? If that's the case, its bull shit.
Why can't i just go down to my local convenience store and be able to pick out the right brown color bronzer? Not everyone is light skinned, and even those people who are naturally light skinned, most of them go tanning. Everyone these days wants to be tan, so why discontinue these colors? It looks kind of funny when my body is one color and my face is pale as fuck.
Everyone has different skin tones whether it be yellow, white, black, brown or pink. How about we cater to everyone, that would be nice. All i'm looking for is convenience, I don't want to have to pay 40 bucks for a bronzer in some magazine when i can get it for 10 dollars down the street.
It's not like where i live isn't diverse enough, and even if it weren't the town over could be. Ever think about that? I wish i didn't have to wear any makeup, now that would be convenient, but that isn't the case.
So makeup providers and makers please give me the opportunity to keep buying your product by not getting rid of it. If you want to, ill buy out all your product in bulk. That way i don't have to go to the store ever again. K thanks!
