I remember my preteen self perusing the drugstore beauty aisle and leaning my amateur eyes over fancy makeup counters at department stores searching for makeup to complement my dark skin tone. The limited amount of "nudes" and "foundations" available led me to believe those weren't made with me in mind. Often, beauty brands misinterpreted "nude" as one-shade-fits-all and the beige, chalky-pink options did not work for my deep complexion. Foundation lines took a more careless, singular approach with foundation and created one or two "deep" foundations as if women of color didn't have a myriad of complex complexions and undertones that also deserved an array of shades suitable for our skin tones. This has gotten better in recent years, thanks to revolutionary brands that have put women of color first before it became the most marketable and strategic business move. Working in the beauty industry, you get a firsthand look at fresh launches and an opportunity to test the latest and greatest beauty products. I called on fellow brown-girl beauty editors to share the story behind how they found their holy grail nude lipstick , go-to foundation, and the one hair product they always reach for.

Skip navigation! Story from Beauty. The first time I tried on a pair of "flesh toned" stockings from my local drugstore before church, I was sorely disappointed. Instead of matching my dark brown legs, I looked down to see my limbs covered in a wildly unflattering beige material. That's my experience with "nudes" in a nutshell. For years, whenever I saw a new line of nude lipsticks or glosses from my favorite brands, I'd keep browsing, not wanting to relive my nylon nightmare. Of course, I'm not alone.
