Hey Apple Diva! Here's to you!
AppleDiva and I talk frequently about foundations for women of color. While over at the fabulous blog Scandalous Beauty, I watched a video that she found with renowned artist Eve Pearl explaining how to combat some of the typical problems women of color have: oily t-zone and needing more than just one color of foundation to make the perfect canvas. I hope I'm not giving you guys video overload. Sometimes, it's better to show you than to tell you.
Tip: Listen to Eve when she says that you can't be afraid! Easier said than done, but you won't know unless you try. When in doubt get a second opinion and you are always free to return product =)
