There was a time in history when fair skin was the prevailing standard of beauty and thank goodness, those days are long gone. As the new age paves the way for a beauty industry that champions diversity and embraces the beautiful brown skin, more and more women are learning to love the body and skin they’re in.
Here are five makeup products made perfectly for the morena beauty:
- Colourette Coloutint in ZOLA
We totally understand why this product is almost always out of stock in the local market. Colourette cosmetics’ infamous Colourtint in the shade Zola is the perfect tone of ‘universally flattering rosy brown’ that’s very morena-friendly! This makeup product is multiuse, too – lip tint, eyeshadow, blush – knock yourself out!
- Vice Cosmetics Duo Finish Foundation in the shade MOREYNA
We’ve heard lots of good things about this particular product by a local makeup brand founded by celebrity-comedian Vice Ganda. Vice Cosmetics’ collection of soft, dual finish powders that come in eight shades to suite every skin tone promise a flawless airbrushed look from medium to full coverage. Plus points: it is vegan, cruelty-free, budget-friendly, and paraben-free!
- Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade GOTTA GO
Careline is that trusty and budget-friendly makeup brand which had always got our back since our teenage years. Just recently, the household makeup brand introduced its newest line “Careline: Better Than Basic” and it’s truly been living up to its name. Morenas will love the full-pigmented matte liquid lipstick in the shade Gotta Go. Its peachy perfect nude shade complements the brown skin real well and the fast-drying and moisturizing formula is a real deal! And oh! We love how it’s very lightweight it’s almost like you’re not wearing any lipstick at all!
- Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Multipurpose Color Cream in DELIGHT
Ellana Mineral Cosmetics certainly deserves more attention from the local beauty scene because aside from its products acting both as makeup and skincare, Ellana is also made and formulated particularly for the Asian beauty. This vegan, cruelty-free, non-comodogenic, and talc-free cares for the environment as much as it cares for your skin, as it is also one of the very few cosmetic brands in the country that offers refill options for their powders and cream products. Try their multipurpose color cream in the shade delight – truly a delightful warm red-brown with a subtle, summer glow that’s suitable for all skin tone.
- Beauty Not Just On The Outside’s Tinted Lip Balms
Beauty Not Just On The Outside, formerly Beauty by Hodge Podge, locally formulates organic and cruelty-free products that are fit for the morena skin. One of their first products that people loved are the tinted lip balms that are made from beeswax, sunflower oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil – all these organic goodness for only Php 175! Five stars for functionality, quality, and affordability! It comes in three brown skin-flattering shades: merlot, coral, and cinnamon.
