    I define my beauty as a Variation of Myself.
    Everyone comes in different shape, form, size. I draw my beauty inspiration from everyone. I dress it up, make it natural, theatrical, dramatic… and as I age makeup also means covering some difficult spots and enhancing the beautiful parts.

    I define my beauty as Being Uniquely Me.
    Beauty is about being your own individuality. Makeup enhances your beauty & everyone has their natural beauty in their own unique way. Whether a tomboy, gay, lesbian, whatever, as a woman you don't have to fit into any box. Every girl isn't the same. Just be your uniquely you.

    I define my beauty as Joyful and Carefree.
    My beauty is effortless, timeless and a blessing. Finding makeup is not always easy for darker skins because you have different pigment levels but finding the right shades is a confidence booster for sure. My beauty exudes sexy, care free, and it's a very good feeling.

    Sweet Espresso

    I define my beauty as being Comfortable in My Own Skin.
    Finding makeup that fits my skin shade is difficult. It is a combination of knowing your undertones and all over shade. I like makeup that is very breathable, light on my skin and makes me feel natural.

  • Jacklyn
    Black Walnut

    I define beauty as staying True to Myself.
    Beauty is internal. You have to have confidence to be able to do what you have to do on a daily basis, not through other people's eyes but more within yourself. Wearing makeup makes me feel bolder, daring, very open and free willing.

  • Nene
    Ebony Brown

    I define my beauty as Daring.
    Makeup enhances your beauty. I'd encourage women my complexion to not only wear the right foundation, but also get out of the box and try bold, bright colors. Contrary to what I thought, they work well with our deep complexions.
