Did you remember the time when there only was one shade for colored skins. Now we can find the perfect foundation almost everywhere. Yes, I said almost everywhere! A few years ago I was in Slovenia for holidays and a bad thing happened! I forgot my foundation! It was a disaster to find a new foundation for my skin color. Especially in a small town in the east of Europe. Why? The reason is simple many beauty stores like for example drugstore depends on the ethnic composition of the population, it easier to sell their product this way. That’s why you will find more choices in larger cities than in a small town, where the population has no colored skin. Now there are specialized makeup brands for colored skin. So if you find one of them, you will find everything you need for your skin color.
