Fenty Beauty By Rhianna Is The Best Thing That Has Happened To Makeup

FENTY BEAUTYFenty Beauty is a new brand own by music artist Rihanna that’s represents beauty for all, that’s who she is and that’s what she stands for. Something that many makeup brands have never really embraced. So this is why her products are flying off the Sephora shelves everywhere especially the foundations. It’s one of the most expensive items that majority of makeup companies sell besides makeup brushes.

One of the most talked about item from Fenty Beauty is their ultimate PHOTO FILT’R foundation in 40 boundary breaking shades. Usually makeup brands start off with lighter shades of foundation then every few years they add on darker shades. Well, Fenty Beauty has shouted from the mountain top that they are here for ALL WOMEN of all shades. Finally, so many boogie down brown women will now walk around feeling really good because they are wearing the correct foundation shade. To me wearing the correct foundation is like wearing the correct bra, this is why I think Fenty Beauty is the best thing that has happened for women. I feel that Rhi Rhi will not overlook so many women hue when producing products. I can’t wait to see all the fun holiday collections, seasonal and limited edition makeup items Rhi Rhi will add to her makeup line.

Some of the items you can purchase now at Sephora are: primer, foundations, matte skinsticks, shimmer skinsticks, highlighters, contour skinsticks, luminizers, brushes, blotting powder and blotting paper. I’m so grateful for so many reasons but one being that so many women now have a makeup brand to count on…Chi Ching!!!

Makeup: Color Correcting And Contouring On Brown Skin Women

I always get asked when I’m at Sephora from boggie down brown skin clients what do I use to achieve a flawless makeup look. Color correcting is a big thing for me when I’m applying makeup on clients and on myself. On deeper skin women I do a lot of color correcting under the eyes and around the lips. It’s ok to use two shades of foundation especially around the hairline or a medium foundation and a darker powder.

Finally makeup brands are hearing brown skin women cry who needs a little color correcting and or contouring kit. At the moment my favorite four items I use daily to achieve an even skin are listed below.  First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Brighten, Depuff and Smooth in Deep
