lets play a game called ‘find a shade that would suitably match an African American or any person of any color different than white’. Very tired of white washing.
while there’s obviously a couple of shades for POC up here. there’s so so so so much whiteness. no one needs to wear make-up but anyone who wants to should have the option.
And even those that would work for POC are still on the light end.
Another thing I’ve noticed, which might be a microaggression, is that a lot of the darker skintones have food related names. The lighter shades will be stuff like beige, ivory, and nude (don’t get me started on the word nude), but the darker shades will be honey, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, etc.
If I wanted a caramel machiatto, I’d have just gone to Starbucks.
Sorry but I lol’ed, and you are very correct. Our shades usually have some sort of food attached to them, its annoying. They can take the time to find all these different names for beige but they can’t come up with a few names for brown?! Like maybe sienna, sepia, mahogany, bronze, sable…we come in a variety of brown shades and there are many ways to describe our skin tone without calling us chocolate or cafe au lait.
The drugstore is pretty much 50 Shades of Beige…
So important to remember! When the hot weather hits, wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable!

I found this nice tutorial/anatomy advice spread created by meghanhetrickof deviant art.
She gave me permission to post it up here to share so go make sure to visit her and look at her other creations of goodness!
I get what they’re doing here and I think it’s cool, but I mean it’s weird to be all “boobs come in all shapes and sizes!!” and then to shame people with implants whose boobs DO look more like all the “no” examples.
I do my best to draw diverse body types, and I very much support seeing more diversity in the way women are portrayed in art. But we can do that without shaming ladies whose bodies aren’t “natural”, because frankly they get enough shit anyway.
True. Reblogging again for corrections and commentary
