One of my close friends, who is Sri Lankan, would always ask me when she’s in Singapore if I know of any brands that actually make makeup – base makeup specifically – that would suit her darker skin tone. She would tell me that Singapore has NOTHING for girls like her, and at first, I didn’t believe it.
So I took her shopping one day… and I was appalled. The color choices here are pretty pathetic, which I don’t understand, because those who do business in Singapore – do they not know what nationalities, skin colors and tones reside here? Helloooo.
Anyway, long story short: I was at Escentials for my scent profiling, and looked around and spotted Becca, which just landed on our shores this month and lo and behold: COLORS! An actual range of colors!
So to my friend and for anyone else who has that problem: try Becca at Escentials. They seem to have a pretty awesome range in all sorts of colors; be it stick foundation, concealer or pressed powder. I’m so glad the store brought in the full range of colors, and not selected color and shades (which I think most do).
Do you have a problem finding makeup shades to suit your skintone? Where do you normally shop?
