Finding the right color foundation for very fair or darker complexions can be difficult since most companies have a relatively limited range of choices, especially when it comes to natural makeup. For women of color, I just came across the organic mineral makeup brand Valana Minerals. I’ve often heard complaints that the colors available from major mineral makeup brands can look ashy as it gets darker, just as it can look a little chalky on very light skin. Valana seems to have solved that problem with a “natural mineral makeup for women of color”.
According to the company, these are the main features of the Valana Minerals makeup line:
- 100% Natural and Vegan
- Formulated for sensitive skin
- Large range of colors
- Exceptional quality
- Radiant glow – no “ashy” look
There are numerous testimonials on their website of customers raving about how much they love the Valana makeup. Also, the company says that even though the product line was created for ethnic skin tones, the large range of colors works on many shades of skin.
If you’ve had problems finding a good color match in mineral makeup for your skin tone, take a look at Valana. They are available in some Whole Foods stores (this is an organic line) or you can go directly to their website: Valana Minerals.
