Ayesha Muttucumaru introduces the new GTG e-guide written to help those with olive, brown and black skin tones find their perfect foundation match. Here’s why this industry first needs to be your next must-read

If you’ve got olive, brown or black skin and ever struggled to find your perfect foundation match, you’re not alone; in the past, finding ranges that cater for those with deeper skin tones has been a notoriously difficult and dispiriting task. However, the landscape of our makeup counters is finally changing. And about time too.

While my Not Fair column for Get The Gloss may have been inspired by my initial frustration with the beauty industry and its reluctance to cater for my skin tone as comprehensively as it did for my lighter skinned friends, I’m happy to report that the subject is no longer as black and white as it used to be. With brands steadily diving into the deep end to add a touch of diversity to their foundation ranges, there’s been no better time than now to start shopping.

So, where’s best to start when it comes to exploring what’s on offer and finding your perfect match? Three words: Our new e-guide.

A collection of everything that I’ve learned over the years about all things base control (both as a makeup loving teen and career as a beauty journalist), I wanted to write this e-guide to create a comprehensive go-to handbook for enhancing, rather than masking, darker skin tones and help those who have perhaps shared similar experiences as me to celebrate the skin they're in. While there are still strides to be made by some brands (the more budget-friendly end of the cost spectrum especially), the beauty industry is in the midst of an exciting makeover of its own, offering more possibilities for darker skin tones than ever before.

So what can you look to find out from this guide? From the best foundations to suit any budget to the best primers, the best skincare for creating the perfect canvas to understanding your undertones and the best foundation brushes to expert application, all bases have been covered to hopefully answer all of your questions on the topic. With advice from top makeup artists Ruby Hammer and Caroline Barnes as well as their top product picks too, here’s to this downloadable guidebook helping you find your perfect match.

Immediately I saw reviews from some Dr. Wakina’s clients while googling for “ways to win your lover’s heart”, I felt relieved already, I felt Doctor Wakina is the right healer to my broken heart before contacting his spiritual temple though; “dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com”.
The man I thought was my soul mate started acting weird, he always says he has never felt the love I gives to him with another and it scares the life out of him. He promised to be committed to me and spend his entire life with me. We have been having romantic moments filled with memories for over 6 months.
Like I was expecting, he socked my feelings when he told me he has 3 years old son from his previous relationship and has been feeling guilty towards his son, he was really consumed with guilt and we started seeing each other less, he relocated and calls me twice a month to tell me he still loves me but he don’t know if he can do the relationship stuff again? He then got more and more distinct and I was seriously dying. He told me he was confused and needed some emotional help before he can move on with his life, he wants to be the best dad but not with his ex but with me, I became more confused and needed spiritual interpretation to our feelings before contacting Dr. Wakina.
It was my first and I didn’t know what spell that will be fit here but I would want that first connection again, not only for sex, I want our romantic moments restored, I want to feel his love again. I was almost exhausted before Dr. Wakina offered his helping hands and restored back his confused spirit and connection again, we now love, romance, stable and committed in our relationship for 3 months now.
From my point of view, I think Dr. Wakina “dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com” is the best spell doctor you can find on the internet, you won’t regret contacting him. He is good.
