Celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine says that the biggest mistake a Black woman can make is going without makeup.

In a recent interview, the Fashion Fair Creative Makeup Director shared that women of color lose the opportunity to enhance their beauty by not participating in the makeup process.

“And I think a lot of [women of color] are scared that makeup is going to make [them] look fake, ‘It’s not gonna look like me, they’re not going to have my color,’ Fine explained.

Fine later added that Fashion Fair is closing the gap on limited shades for Black women by adding 19 shades to their liquid foundation this July.

“And if you look at that, that’s not a range that’s broken up for general market vs. African Americans. So you really are getting a wealth of coverage options and colors,” Fine said.

The makeup guru provided 5 simple must-haves for women who are not fans of having a full face of makeup.

“Pressed powder, mascara, and lip gloss, because I think those things aren’t intimidating,” Fine stressed.

Fine also emphasized the importance of coverage for problem areas.

“A concealer, or a foundation that you can use as a concealer. Underneath the eyes is the thinnest area of skin, so you really want to make sure that any redness or discoloration can be covered,” Fine explained.

Fine stressed the use of powder as an added necessity so that the concealer can last longer.

  1. This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how
    you presented it. Too cool!

    Beauty starts from within. I wouldn’t say it’ s a MUST… but if you want to enhance…a little mascara & gloss never hurts….

    Ladies can absolutely choose not to wear anything to “enhance” their beauty. But I don’t think it is about changing who you are or who GOD has made you to be. No more than it is for you to wear accessories/shoes to go with an outfit or lotion for the times when our natural skin gets dry. If these things, including some powder or gloss makes you feel good outside as well as inside, then go for it!!!! and…it is ok to ask for advice if you are not sure how to apply…..
