#BlackCanadianStyle. Thank you #maccosmetics and @janemackaymakeup for helping me update my makeup look. Big reveal tomorrow!
💄💄💄
Over the years as a beauty editor working with top makeup artists, I’ve ‘found the look’ I’m comfortable with. But it’s so easy to get into a rut. Even if your ‘look’ remains the same, new formulations keep it current and fresh.
🖤🖤🖤
I’ve worked with this brand since it was owned by the two Franks, going way back. Back then they purposely devised a very inclusive skin colour palette, and I still trust them to have colours that work for darker skin tones.

James Baldwin and Richard Avedon were classmates in a Bronx, New York high school, where they co-edited the literary magazine.
🖤🖤🖤
Later, in 1964, they joined their voices to cry out in anger and frustration against America’s ‘unspeakable loneliness’, and a ‘death of the heart’ which has replaced the ‘miracle of love’
🖤🖤🖤
Both artists ‘go there’, to expose and speak of the heart, mind and soul where prejudices thrive. Hell of a long struggle.
