Black-Owned Beauty & Cosmetics Brands

I find that often cosmetics companies forget that there are more than 10 shades of skin tones. I feel like they don’t understand women of color. How can you have a foundation range with 20 shades of porcelain but only three for people of color. That is not acceptable.  If small businesses can do it, any big ones can do it do. The beauty industry makes billions per year and more than half of it are made by women of colors. Those companies don’t see how much money they are losing.

Best Online Clothing Stores

You most know by now that I am a shopaholic  and shopping online is my favorite thing to do because it's such a lifesaver. I have done a blog post about some great online destinations for shopping, I think one or two years ago but thought it was time for a little update. I will add more sites as I discover new ones. I have put in parenthesis the sites that only ships to the US or Canada. 

Shopping Online for Makeup : Sites + Tips

In this post, I have decided to give you some great online destinations to shop for makeup. As I previously mention in my Best Affordable Online Shopping Shop when you shop online for makeup be careful because the colors on screen and in reality sometimes are not quite the same. Pay attention to foundations and concealers. For some websites, like Sleek MakeUP you can buy a set of samples and find the right shade before buying the full size. You can also try to buy the makeup directly on the company’s websites.
