Original Art: 12th Dynasty (2003) by Robert Chapman
If there’s one thing that I truly appreciate, it’s finding a foundation for dark skin that works like magic. Thanks to YouTube, I became interested in this NARS Sheer Foundation in Khartoum, a deep chocolate with expresso undertones. I can’t tell you how much I absolutely love it. If you have dark skin and you’re shopping for a liquid foundation then please look into this.
I have a great skin regimen that I’ve been sticking to, so it’s smooth and this NARS foundation covers any dark spots with just one or two drops on my beauty blender. It’s a light foundation, and you can build with it if you’d like to. Since it’s a liquid foundation, it’s really best for dry or normal skin types. Mine is oily, so a primer is pretty much a must if I want to make my face matte for the day. Currently I’m using and loving Neutrogena Shine Control Primer. Other than that, I have no issues with this foundation. I plan to possibly switch to NARS’ All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation , also in Khartoum. It’s an oil-free formula, so it may be better suited for us oily girls! Khartoum is a great color, although as the winter approaches I may need to go back to something with a cooler or more neutral tone.
NARS Khartoum is a little pricey as far as foundation goes. I lucked up and found a deal and got it for $28, but now that I’m in love, when I repurchase I’m sure it’ll be at the regular $45 price. However, I don’t wear foundation daily (most days I get away with BB Cream), so it shouldn’t go too quickly. Plus, it’s great that a little goes a long way with this one.
Did You Know?
Khartoum is a large city in Sudan that was established in 1821 by an Egyptian ruler’s son. Hence, the Egyptian themed art/feature image
