Jackie Aina

    Foundations called "nude" make the least sense. Should ALL foundations be technically NUDE???

  • milocat0316

    I think it would be nice if a company made makeup for all skin types but COMPLETELY switched the names and made the nude a Neutral or warm deep brown

      To me, when I think “nude” I think like bare skin, so ALL foundations are NUDE! so they ALL should be called “nude” or none. Not just one shade name

    I absolutely love you're channel Jackie! You're so fun to watch and It's so important that you talk about race in such a open and well spoken manner. I love learning more about the racial issues in the beauty community in such a way that I can correct and educate people around me when they say ignorant things. Keep on entertaining and educating people with your amazing videos!

    Unfortunate that most brands completely ignore darker skin tones. We wear makeup too!🙋🏾‍♀️

    Nude is such a weird word (on its own) to describe any of it. All foundations are supposed to be nude. It’s such an arbitrary word lol idk if this made sense

    i have always wondered this and thought how no one has really questioned it. especially in foundations, "nude" makes no sense as a foundation shade especially, because everyone has a different nude lol

  • Pumla Mathambo

    You made me love you! Its your fault... just look at me binge-watching 😳 But you raise a good point. Its awkward when you're hit with the reality that your nude doesn't look as good as the nude you saw on a lighter skinned person... A wider range will be much appreciated.

    Thing that gets me about “nude lipsticks” is that even though I’m pretty pale in the grand scheme of things, they’re STILL TOO DAMN LIGHT like child only 0.001% of the population are that light like s w e e t i e give me some colour y’all

  • braydeebunch

    i would actually love to see a makeup line where the colour named 'nude' was for brown/dark girls and like 'vanilla' was the deepest shade bc HELLO vanilla beans r brown!!!! idk, i just think it would be so funny and rad to flip the name on their heads and give the traditionally white names to the dark colours. also, the whole ordering from darkest to lightest thing, love when brands do that.

  • couchmermaid

    Literally how could you have a makeup channel without mentioning race or skin tone

  • please pee here
    please pee here

    I'm white, but have the hardest time finding a nude. Everything I find with the nude description on it is always too light for me, even concealer. I can't even imagine the frustration darker skinned girls have with this kind of labeling. Brands need to do better and just be clearer with the consumer about how dark or light the product is. Oh, and black make-up youtubers though me how to rock light nude lipsticks.

    Really enjoyed your message and content in this video. I would love to see more companies make shades that represent people of all skin tones, and appreciate influencers like yourself bringing attention to this matter. I rarely comment on videos I watch, but this one was too good not to. I have also subscribed, and look forward to watching more of your videos in the future.

  • fairmaidenwhite

    I feel bad because my skin is pretty much the colour of your walls and shelves in there - lol! Until fairly recently, I had some of the same problems with makeup as you, only in reverse - everything was waaay too dark and orangey.. I know it's nowhere near as extensive as the issues you have had with "nude" makeup, but I do feel your pain about the beauty industry - they have ignored both of us for long enough!!! 💙💙💙

  • LuckyLondon62

    okay but that ivory nude concealer may still be too dark for me lol

    I am a very light skinned African American woman, and to be honest throughout my life I have never paid attention to the makeup tone darker than my own. And I never knew that darker tones were so limited until I started watching you. I just wanted to say thank you for opening my eyes and for all you are doing because I have a 9 year old daughter that is dark skin and because your fight for equality when she is old enough she will not have to struggle with finding options that suite her. So a big thank you from me

    I just bought a pack of Makeup Revolution's "BARE" collection lipsticks on a whim, and none of them even looked half decent on me! I'm a tanned girl (Fenty 3.3 for scale) and I look so washed out in them! Beautiful shades, but so disappointing - especially the fact they have a good range of foundation colors!
