Hello guys! Todays video I'll be talking about some of the WORST makeup and beauty brands for people of color. I am judging them based on lack of diversity and and scarce shade ranges. This video is not intended to maliciously harm the brands but to give feedback on how they can improve for the products they carry. Thumbs up this video if you enjoyed it and subscribe :)

Changing the standard of beauty, one tutorial at a time :)
I don’t consider myself dark whatsoever there are many Asians who are much darker than I am, and just people in general who are darker,,, and even some of these shades are too light for me. It’s a shame.
It makes me so sad like I know this is an old video but it’s such a prevalent issue and I know so many people who struggle with this to the point where they have actual breakdowns over not being able to find products for them and it’s unreal.
Watching this video at home had my husband asking some questions which led to an interesting conversation. And that made me want to pop up in the comments and say thank you, Jackie (and the many other awesome artist that are different races than me) for opening my eyes to the lack of inclusion and diversity in make up. As a white woman I didn't and still dont/can't experience this issue but I have started to try to be better about recognizing the brands that are guilty of it and not purchasing from them.
So this is just a long winded comment to say, "Thank you! You're awesome!"
My issue with the 'inclusion in make-up' debacle is the fact that if a company has a small shade range ('cause of the demographics of the US, for example) they don't own up to the fact that they have a small range BECAUSE they're focused on the demographics.
*Ya can't claim everyone has a shade with White-Out as your darkest shade*
yes! <3 I'm white.. white white... Sour cream white. And sometimes there's brands that don't make foundation light enough so I end up looking like I'm wearing a bad Trump tan even in a "porcelain" shade. So, I'm always hyper aware of the spectrum of color a brand offers. If nearly pure white or pure black is on the menu I'm always ultra impressed.
My goodness you are a gorgeous woman!! ! Thank you for your honesty and being so open. I thought there was bias out there in the make-up world, but until you lay it out there like this, I just had no idea JUST how biased and racially motivated. Thank you for saying all of this so clearly and plainly. I truly hope that make-up companies are listening!
If I could I’d make a makeup brand that only makes foundations, concealers and powders. There would be 50 light shades and 50 deep shades. Every undertone, finish etc. EVERY MOTHER F****N BODY WOULD HAVE A SHADE! NOBODY WOULD EVER BE LEFT OUT!
I'm surprised you didn't call out Benefit. I'm white, but have noticed their foundations also don't go very dark at all. They've been getting better over the years, but not nearly deep enough to cover all women.
So my mind is currently being blown right now from finding all of these black owned cosmetic lines and other businesses. The brands like Black Opal and Black Radiance that I’ve been a fan of in the past are actually owned by caucasian men and women. More specifically, Caucasian men (mostly men) and women who actively go out of their way to make other MAINSTREAM and MORE AVAILABLE brands like IT Cosmetics and Physicians Formula to completely neglect Black skintones. My brain yo…
Well you right but people forget that albinos have trouble too. Like there aren’t shades dark enough, but there aren’t shades light enough either. Some of us are as white as paper, but brands like making all those in between shades if you get me. They’re mediums, but they don’t have the deepest or the lightest shades they should.
You so hit the nail on the head...I hate shoe shopping because I am a size 11. So in I go in a shoe store before I get too emotionally attached to a shoe I have to check sizes. Thank you for that...also totally agree with you about Almay
Regarding Korean face products, a lot Korean women use foundation that's lighter than their skin tone.
But I guess not everyone wants to lighten their skin, and also foreign consumers are getting into Korean makeup.. so it would be wise for them to make some darker shades. I do agree with that. Etude house has released some darker foundation shades!! It's not a huge range but I think it's a step in the right direction:)
I am really, really light and couldn't find foundation in my skin tone. This changed a lot in the last couple of years. But here in Europe, you hardly see any dark colours at all. Especially not in drug stores. This definitely has to change. I am happy that I finally get to buy stuff that suits my skin but still pissed that not everybody gets the chance.
I’m Hispanic, and it is so hard to find a shade that isn’t too dark or too light. I use 90% drugstore makeup and it’s so hard to find a good shade. I use shade 128, I think it might be just a tad bit too dark!!
I’m super fair and honestly I a 100% agree with her. Why the fuck do a get to have 4 shades that correspond to my skin color when people of color get one or no option most of the time 🙄 it’s a disgrace and a stupid business move because they are ignoring tones of potential clients that could buy their products. I honestly don’t believe the excuse that brands use saying making darker shades is harder. Sounds like BS to me.
