Foundations for All

Model Duckie Thot calls out make-up brands...

News

Model of the moment Duckie Thot recently admitted that she still has to take her own foundations to shoots. “I’ll give the make-up artist the space and we’ll shoot. If it doesn’t look good, then we’ll change to what I know works. Growing up, make-up was ordered online, shipped from America or London. I found it difficult, I’m really, really dark: sometimes even the MAC shades weren’t dark enough,” she said.

 

Pleasingly brands are extending their colour shade ranges and finally waking up to the needs of women of colour. The two we’re loving right now? See below...

MARC JACOBS Shameless Foundation (£32) comes in shades for darker skintones and has been formulated with flashback free SPF, so you don’t get any tell-tale signs in your selfies. Genius!

Elsewhere and BENEFIT Soft Blur Foundation (£25.50) has concealing spheres meaning imperfections are blotted out instantly and it comes in 12 shades, from fairest to deepest.
