Suitable skincare and make-up for black skin…


Mally Visible Skin Adjustable Coverage Foundation Q. Hi, I love QVC especially beauty, but I think there is not a lot that suits black skin. Please help.

A. All of QVC's skincare is suitable for richer skin tones because professionally we don't go by skin colour, but skin type – you would still categorise your skin as dry, normal, combination, sensitive or oily.

If you have dark skin, then you can have a greater prevalence to pigmentation issues and two skincare ranges that are great for this are Alpha-H and Elemis Tri Enzyme.

Make-up wise I'd recommend Mally, Bobbi Brown and BareMinerals for base products. For accent colours and eyeshadows, that won't go ashy, the best ranges are Mally, Bobbi Brown for purity of colour and Bare Escentuals, especially when used wet.

    Hi Alison, I have just finished using Clientele foundation powder in Light and was wondering if you could recommend a powder foundation like it. It would be really good if QVC would stock the clientele foundation powder again as it is the best one that I have found to use for coverage as well as colour.
