The 10 Best Makeup Lines For Women of Color!!!
It’s no secret that women of color have some of the most beautiful skin tones around, but matching a foundation to those varied shades of brown, is not always the easiest task.
Forget about going to a drugstore to try to find a great foundation. They rarely cater to all of our complexions.
When attempting to find the perfect foundation, start first at the counter of your favorite cosmetic store opposed to your drugstore counter. Here, a professional will be able to test different shades on you and give you the scoop on what’s best for you.
Finding the right products can often be a grueling task. But not to worry– Juicy takes some of the guesswork out of foundation finding by giving you these top 10 makeup lines for women of color.

MAC is an absolute makeup powerhouse. The makeup brand has an impressive variety of pigmented foundations, eye shadows, and lip formulas that look great on women of color. We especially love the Paint Pot collection by MAC which is a highly pigmented eye color that comes in 16 different shades, all perfect for women of color.
Covergirl Queen Collection
The COVER GIRL Queen Collection is one of the makeup lines that women of color can actually shop for at their local drug store. If you don't know already, this line was inspired by startlette QUEEN LATIFAH, and the makeup's deep, vibrant hues shine just as bright as their namesake. From the QUEEN COLLECTION, we especially love the natural Hue Bronzer, and the 1 Kit Eye Shadows. Take a gander at the QUEEN COLLECTION, and find what makes you look and feel like a queen.
When it comes to flawless, Black beauty IMAN COSMETICS is it! It only makes sense that a makeup line created by an international super model, would deliver such glamorous results. IMAN is perfect for the girl that wants to give full on glamour.
NARS cosmetics have a splendid selection of make up, specifically foundation, that are really great for women of color. What's also great about NARS' foundations in particular is the option of choosing a soft satin, or matte finish. We definitely reccomend NARS foundation for women of color.
LOREAL'S warm hues look amazing on brown girls. We especially love the Studio Secrets Shocking Shadows Pigments that come in a variety of bold colors that look great on brown skin tones.
It's no question that AIDA is a god-Send. Since women of color often suffer from sensitive skin, and dermatological issues, the fact that AIDA'S products are all hypoallergenic, fragrance free, allergy tested, and non-comedogenic, makes this makeup brand absolutely irresistible.
LAMIK is all about eco-chic. LAMIK products include ingredients such as green tea, avocado oil, orange bitter extract, cucumber, and vitamins E and C that all promote healthy, supple skin. Additionally, their products are hypoallergenic, which is important for maintaining great, healthy skin.
