Great instructional video for women of color
on June 12, 2008
Applying makeup has never come easy to me, I've always known what I want to look like but never had the skills to achieve that look. Before this, I'd tried the Alexis Vogel cosmetic system, a very expensive mistake as the needs and coloring of my deep skin tone were not addressed. Great cosmetics & excellent video, just not for me.
This video was just what I'd been looking for. The colors and techniques were applicable to the skin tones of women of color. As the title implies, Danessa walked thru basic steps and tips, including the tools that one needs, then she also built upon each look to turn up the "wow factor". The skills I've learned have taken me from a basic look for my conservative office, to a nice evening look, to a dramatic look to wear at a club or social function. It didn't happen over night for me. I watched the video a few times completely thru, then started it and practiced along with her. Now I can apply without using the DVD.
On a lark, I asked a friend and a co-worker (both non-blacks) to try out the video because I wanted to know if it would work for them. Both were able to do multiple looks with similar cosmetic products they already own. Big thumbs up from both.
Very good buy.
