If you’re new to makeup or a novice I encourage you to hold off spending the big bucks on makeup products. Try not to become overwhelmed with every new product and technique that comes out. Start out trying to perfect a simple, polished look or even one aspect i.e. foundation, brows and then expand from there. I always say if your skin and brows look good then you’ve won half the battle. There are plenty of quality and affordable products found in the local drug stores or beauty supply.
Here are a few brand names/products to get you started and melanin friendly(click the link to products):
