Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands. They make high quality, highly pigmented products that can go head to head with some of the high end brands, at a fraction of the cost. Best of all, as brown skinned beauties they make lots of products that work for our different complexions and skin tones. Here are some of my favorite products, they are not in any particular order.
A burgundy red with gold shimmer, it is not as scary as it looks in the pan. Red Vino is extremely pigmented so you must use a light hand. When applied lightly and blended it gives the cheeks a natural flush with a slight golden glow. Gorgeous on tan and brown skin.
A deep golden tan with gold shimmer that gives the skin a glowing from within look. This is my go to bronzer, especially in the Summer when I don’t want much of anything else on my face, I use it in place of blush.
3. Eye Tech Extreme
The extreme fine tip point makes it easy to create the thinnest to the boldest lines making it perfect for a cat eye look. Extremely pigmented and long wearing, it stays put all day.
Gives lashes a full yet natural look and is great for everyday wear.
I absolutely love the color statement lipsticks and it’s hard to choose a favorite but hands down, Black Cherry is my numero uno. A bold black cherry cream that is perfect for a vamp lip. It’s extremely pigmented and moisturizing and just really makes the lips pop. Perfect for a Fall and Winter stand out lip.
On the other end of the lipstick spectrum, Teddy Bare is one of my favorite nudes. As a brown girl I find it hard to find a good nude lipstick as some are too dark and most are too ashy. Teddy Bare is the perfect pink toned brown cream to get the my lips but better look. It works very well on women of color, even those with deeper complexions that may have an even harder time finding a nude lipstick.
I used all of the products together to create a look to take you from day to night…
