Finally a Reason to Suffer Midtown - UrbanSpace Garment District!

Ahh, midtown Manhattan. Home of tourists, honking, large garbage piles, and tourists indiscernible from large garbage piles. Those who inhabit this populous city know that Midtown is only to be visited for work or emergency—but UrbanSpace is changing that from now until 10/17. Enter: UrbanSpace Garment District.

My first stop was Wafels & Dinges, which has a delightfully bright yellow food truck that parks all around town and that I’ve avoided with persistence because if I find a waffle I like, I will eat it every day forever. We all have our problems…

Hi I apologize if someone else has asked this before but could you recommend a few makeup products for dark skin? You always look on point and I could use a few tips

You gotta go to sephora and make them find the right color. For years I used foundation that was too yellow or too red or too light. If there’s a brown person there they can help better.

I also suggest getting warm toned eyeshadows and orange-y pink or deep purple lipsticks and blushes. A lot of palettes are are silver based and it just looks weird on warmer dark skin tones. 

AND — find pics of celebrities with similar skin tones with hot ass makeup. For years I’ve made mental notes of images in magazines of beautiful Black women and their smoky eyes and whatnot and I tried and failed to emulate it for so long and eventually I just got good at it. Now I have like 5 good looks. But seriously, look for people who resemble you and try to do your makeup in a way that flatters your unique look.
