While the foundation conversation remains at the forefront of concerns about inclusion in makeup there’s another inequality that no one is talking about. Some mascaras only show up as intended on pale skin. You can place coat after coat, but they just won’t be true to the shade. Celebrity makeup artist Emily Cheng, who has also worked on Yara Shahidi, kept this in mind when choosing a formula for her client. “I love this mascara ($25.00, Sephora.com) because the colors are rich and the black, in particular, is very vivid and a true black. A lot of times you’ll come across black mascaras that lack the intensity needed and can sometimes appear more like a light black/grey on deeper skintones,” said Cheng. If you have been looking for a pigmented mascara, reveals, “The colored version of these are also vibrant enough that you can see against any skin tone which is something I notice a lot of colored mascaras struggle with.”
