Sam Fine Says A Black Womans Biggest Beauty Mistake Is Choosing Not Wearing Makeup
The mistake that many women make when picking and chooses their makeup is that they have absolutely no idea what color[s] and/or products work for their [complexion]. This added on to the misguided suggestions of other women who also lack the ability to piece together a cute face often leaves the “teachee” feeling intimidated and with a “whatever” attitude. The misconceptions of how make-up is suppose to look also come into play especially with so many different ideas on what a “cute face” is suppose to look like.
During a recent interview with fashion site Fashion Bomb Daily, celebrity makeup artist and Fashion Fair creative director Sam Fine was asked what he thought was one of the biggest beauty mistakes that Black women tend to make and like a boss, he kept it real.
As you are reading this article I can imagine what you are thinking, however, if you take the time to listen to what the man is saying and actually think about it you may find that he actually has a valid point. According to Mr. Fine, the biggest beauty mistake a woman can make is the mistake of choosing not to wear make-up.
While staring in the face of his bare-faced interviewer, Sam continued on to further explain his point of view stating that it doesn’t take a full face of makeup to enhance your beauty, just a few simple must-haves will do the job every time.
I think the biggest beauty mistake is not understanding how to enhance your beauty. And I think a lot of WOC are scared that makeup is going to make [them] look fake, “It’s not gonna look like me, they’re not going to have my color.” I think that they just tend to step away from the category when a brand like Fashion Fair, is releasing a liquid foundation in July to add to the range of colors. Nineteen shades! There will be 17 shades in liquid! And if you look at that, that’s not a range that’s broken up for general market vs. African Americans. So you really are getting a wealth of coverage options and colors. I think the biggest mistake is not participating in the game at all.
It’s a lifelong process of getting to these five pieces. I just named a few. Pressed powder, mascara, and lip gloss, because I think those things aren’t intimidating, once you get past the shade of powder, I think that becomes easy to apply. But if I had to go two steps further, I always start out with some kind of a coverage product. A concealer, or a foundation that you can use as a concealer. Underneath the eyes is the thinnest area of skin, so you really want to make sure that any redness or discoloration can be covered. Also powder. Powder’s going to set the foundation or the concealer so it can stay on longer. I always say powder is to foundation what topcoat is to nail polish. It really holds it in place and keeps it from rubbing off and settling in fine lines.
You may now uncross your person and put down the blade…what he said really isn’t that bad.
Do you wear make-up? If not, why?
