Now this is a liquid liner I can get behind! For years, I’ve always avoided liquid eyeliner because it was messy, hard to use, smudged too much and took way too long too dry. However, there has finally come a day that I’ve truly fallen for liquid liner. Thanks to CoverGirl’s miraculous new Intensify Me! Liquid Liner.
Brown skin can be pretty tricky sometimes when it comes to makeup. It comes with all kinds of quirks like unevenness and hyper-pigmentation along with a dull, ashy cast sometimes. That’s why a one size fit all approach isn’t always the best for brown gals–especially when it comes to foundation. Most people aren’t all one color in the face and this holds especially true for WOC. We’re usually a bit darker in the perimeter of our faces and lighter in the center. This contrast can often cause foundation to look a little dull and ashy around the darker areas. And we all know that’s the worse for WOC!
If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen many of my no makeup selfies and noticed that I have a sort of natural contour along with some slight hyper pigmentation around my mouth. Sometimes, the area around my hairline and mouth can start to look dull and ashy because my foundation just doesn’t cut it when it comes to the deeper parts of my face.
