So it has truly gotten better since I was fourteen and trying to cake on drugstore brand shades like butterscotch and almond brittle. I've been on many sets where I've been the only person of color, and it sucks. I could write for days about how fucked costuming and wardrobe is for fat women.

At this job, I didn't mind that the artist was working with an incomplete kit, because (A) It was my first job, and (B) I saw one black person in Romania, and he was at the airport, leaving. I'm very used to not having clothing fit and/or the wardrobe department not even having clothing in my size (which is a shitty thing to get used to). If I remember correctly, they start at a deep olive and have like 15 shades that go to like super-dark onyx. As a niche social influencer Nikol has over 3 million views on her beauty YouTube channel and reaches tens of thousands of women across her social media platforms looking for a change in the anti-aging beauty … It's incredible that EVERY SINGLE makeup line on the market has a million shades for white people, from ivory to light sand and everything in between, whereas some lines have one or two or ZERO shades for people of color. This may sound like a commercial for them, but I love MAC Cosmetics. So inclusion or a blended family isn't even a thought unless the show or movie is about that topic. This is about how makeup artists on set FUCK UP my beautiful black face. Not to make it about privilege, but having makeup for your own skin It was a truly wild ice-cream commercial shot in Romania (please YouTube it: "Nestle Fairy Nicole Byer"). Also, don't sleep on Fashion Fair. Watched one artist mix six different shades of beige foundation for a full ten minutes. Sephora is also a great resource — its branded line goes pretty dark. You can see her live: follow her Instagram and Twitter for live show updates — @NicoleByer on both. P.S. I love my fat 'lil body. Take a seminar or a class and educate yourself in order to do your job at full capacity! Not to make it about privilege, but having makeup for your own skin color IS A PRIVILEGE. Although I am a fat actress and I dread costume fittings, the most stressful thing about being on set is having my makeup done.
So when I actually book a job, and get to set, and it's the rare occasion when I give the makeup artist a chance to do my face, and they fail me, it's just another reminder that I'm different. Waking up at 4 a.m. so you can do your own makeup before you get to set for a 6 a.m. call time so you don't insult the makeup artist by doing your makeup yourself in their allotted time. I love the quality, but that aside, I like that they have my shade and also darker shades of makeup. I love my dark skin, and even though I wear wigs and weaves, I love my naturally kinky hair that barely ever does what I want it to do. : I also do my own hair, because I have natural hair/wear hairpieces, and no one knows how to work with those either. I mention makeup lines that don't offer makeup in darker shades because a lot of makeup artists start their careers at makeup counters. I remember my first job where I was getting paid in more than thank-yous and snacks. Not that I don't want to be different, because I love what makes me different. I had my own show you never saw because it was so poorly promoted called Loosely Exactly Nicole — RIP (I'm still salty). All rights reserved. I remember my first job where I was getting paid in more than thank-yous and snacks. "*. Had a shade of pink put on my lips that made my face lips look like pussy lips.
Things I've looked like after getting my makeup done by "professional makeup artists": Lemme explain. Now if you're a nice white actor friend and you're reading this and you disagree, just imagine having to bring your own makeup to set for every job you book. Was dusted with translucent powder and nothing else because I had "good skin. That, to me, is beautiful. I love me inside and out and when I get to work I would love to have my differences embraced.
Nicole Byer is an actress and comedian living and performing in LA. And I perform all over the country … mostly in LA. I assume she was praying that they would somehow get darker (I finally offered her my personal makeup, which she accepted). Over the years, it has gotten better for people of color, but it's not enough. I realize that other companies do it, too, but MAC stands out to me. Welcome to my YouTube Channel with over 10 million views and over 100K Subscribers I am so happy to see you each week on Monday and Friday's. color IS A PRIVILEGE. On the shoot days, I did the base, and she would do the extras … glitter, blush, and lashes.

This is about how makeup artists on set FUCK UP my beautiful black face. Dry and/or dusty or a crusty combo of the two. I live in a world where if I see a family show, or a show where siblings are the lead characters, I almost always move on and don't worry about auditioning for it, because unfortunately white in our society is the norm. They also have only one shade marked "pale," and they don't feel bad about it, because you're an "other" and it doesn't matter. I remember getting my makeup done and looking in the mirror and having to resist clutching my pearls and screaming. It was a truly wild ice-cream commercial shot in Romania (please YouTube it: "Nestle Fairy Nicole Byer"). Realized when I got home after working that my neck didn't match my face even a little bit. However, I'm saying that larger color selections need to appear at all price points, and it would be great if every makeup company had a range that was more inclusive. It's also just something I've become used to. Some makeup brands are better than others. Plus, you have to learn different looks for different kinds of scenes. Female, male, and trans friends of all shades work there, representing all the colors they sell. Black Radiance and Black Opal also are decent drugstore brands that cater to people of color (but I've only seen them in Harlem or other heavily black areas, which is kinda shitty). I then had to walk the sweet makeup artists through how I do my makeup, using my own products that I had brought with me (thank God I had them). For my white non-actor friends reading this, it is a privilege to go to ANY makeup counter and/or drugstore you want and be able to find your shade. It's fucking gross and rude. In short, I looked truly insane.
But I was very naïve, because I quickly learned that this is basically the standard in America, too.
Not one of them knows how to do your makeup.
Hi! Is it a "no makeup look" or is it a "party look"?
They're fucking up my beautiful black face, and I am over it. When we showed the director, he was confused as to why I didn't look like I did on my audition tape. Ad Choices.

That being said, I've taken audition classes and acting classes, so I expect the same from makeup artists.
But it's not all bad. The woman had somehow covered my face in a grayish-brown color and given me bright-blue eye shadow that looked as if it she were trying to bring the sky inside and put it on my face. Also, just this year, Dior launched darker shades.
