It Does Not Matter If You Are Black Or White

I use to work at Belk living out half of my life long dream of being a cosmetologist. I worked in the cosmetic department as a beauty advisor for the Estee Lauder counter. The cosmetic department consisted of four makeup lines, a men’s fragrance bay, and a women’s fragrance bay. The four makeup lines were Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, and Fashion Fair. The southern prejudices of this country has divided these four makeup lines into two groups: black and white, meaning some southerners think that Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Lancome is for whites and Fashion Fair is for blacks. Fashion Fairs’s saying is that thier makeup is for “women of color” and the ignorance of the southerners think that means blacks only. News Flash: “women of color” mean women of any color including whites because the last time I checked my crayon box white was a color too. The things I have heard and seen at Belk is unbelievable. These lines carry makeup for everyone not just for who they have been catagorized into. One christmas I was helping this black man (who came in to buy his wife some perfume and lipstick), asked for some lipstick and perfume for “blacks.” There is no such thing. Anyone can wear any lipstick and perfume. You choose lipstick based on what looks good on you and perfume based on what goes with your body chemisty not what color you are. I dislike the fact that this world is still this way especially after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr died trying to change this. He probably has rolled over in his grave a million times. When I look at people I see no color only thier character. We are all the same in God’s eyes and he do not judge us based on our color. So now my question is Will Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream Ever be fullfilled?

Your Proper Foundation

The most important part of applying and wearing makeup is your skincare…w/o the proper skincare, makeup would not go on as smooth and look as radiant as it should…My own personal analogy its like building a house would the doors, windows, and walls go up w/o the proper foundation?
