“I always find my skin color unique.  I devour to wind up concocting 2-3 different foundations to achieve the perfect blend.  I’m either a Mac NW43 or a Mac NC45.  I also got extremely dry skin during the winter and surprisingly becomes a combination skin type during hot, humid seasons.  I tan very quickly in 10 minutes tops, but I never burn.  I got warm undertones and got moderately pigmented lips so some colors appears either too red or orange on me.  I call myself a “mutt”: I’m a mixed of Filipino, Spanish and African American.  I wrote this blog to help women of mixed races as well as all women of color, to prove that it’s possible for makeup brands to break stereotypes and not only cater on selective skin tones”. – Charisma Starke
