Be the person you needed when you were younger.
The above quote is the basis for this blog’s entire being. I started it as a personal project with the hope that it would serve as a useful reference tool for young women of colour. Because I too remember being 15, trying out all the most popular MAC lipsticks, and realizing that they looked terrible on me. I’ve since found my own top MAC lipsticks and I hope that my many years of trial and error provide a bit of help to any who come across this blog. This is my small way of “giving back,” and I hope to add to the incredible archives Danielle Gray from The Style and Beauty Doctor and Karen from Makeup & Beauty Blog have created for us.
I am by no means an authority on makeup and I don’t purport to be, so take my thoughts and reviews with a grain of salt. But if this blog happens to help you find a shade that you feel beautiful in, then I’m so glad that it was useful.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to chat about anything (especially school/law). I’m on Instagram (@mosesaly), alternatively you can message through this page where I’ll receive it as an email (privately). I know it’s difficult, as a high-school student, to make these terrifyingly huge life decisions, and as such I’m more than willing to discuss my experiences.
