lizjamesbitch asked: I know a lot of people are posting about this one, but I feel like I should, too. In high school I had friends who I loved & I knew loved me, but she was really uncomfortable with herself. As we grew up, I eventually began to be more comfortable with me. She had a hard time, though, & took it out on me a lot. Saying things ALL the time to put me down, or make me feel bad in a passive aggressive way, like your friend is doing now. These things hurt me so badly, but I took it, because she was my
the-land-of-far-far-away asked: To anon, you got two options. Teach her about culture-disowning hatred, enlighten her about what she is REALLY saying. Ask her the uncomfortable questions, point out uncomforatble scenarios, stand up for your tone and ask her JUST WHAT HELL IS WRONG WITH IT. Im sorry, but it seems your friend is deeply ignorant, shes part of the community that has deep rooted hatred for the origins of her own race and doesnt even know it. Your other option- drop her. She might say no offense but newsflash - IT
tinatooshort asked: Hello, I just wanted to leave this in reply to the 17 yr. old w/ the rude friend *clears throat* I just wanted to say that u either confront your friend about the rude cmnts & let her know that they have been offending you. She won't stop if she doesn't know. And if it continues, even after you've confronted her, then she's not a "friend" to begin w/. You're 17 & I guess she's around the age she has common sense, let her apply it. Idk who you are but you're beautiful, color can't define that! :)
finddeeat asked: To the 17 year old girl: First of all you shouldn't be that girls friend. Your friends aren't supposed to tear you down. I'm 18 and dark skinned too and I had to learn to surround myself with people that lift me up because in the end it is about what you think about yourself. If you don't show confidence in your dark complexion your friend will see that and use it to destroy your awk esteem. Be confident and she will WISH SHE WAS AS DARK AS YOU. People try to destroy anything weak. You're not!!
goaldiggerr asked: *For the Anon that asked about her friend* I Think you should tell her how you feel and If she changes then she really cares about your friendship and your feelings.

greenatlas asked: I just wanted to elaborate further to the beautiful young lady. Darling you're a product of divine law. There's no being walking this planet that can take that away from you. No one can take away or add to your value. The only thing they can do is get you to believe and agree with their ignorant lies. Physically speaking, you are of the same source as the stars, the beautiful mountains and the deep blue oceans. You exist because you're worthy of existence, just as is everyone else. Remind urself

thatgilmore asked: Hi, I was just wondering if you can help me ? So I have reaaally weird discoloration on my face like my nose and around my eyes are lighter than my cheeks and forehead , & I just want an even skin complextion any ideas ? ^__^ <3your blog btw!
colormeminaj asked: I have a quick question. So I don't have bad acne but I have lil' black heads here and there , and I wash my face everyday with Neutrogena deep facial wash and Oxy Cleansing pads and afterwards I put A LITTLE bit of Vaseline on and I've heard that it clogs your pores up, but I have eczema and oily skin, so I would think that Vaseline does help clear blackheads at the same time moisturizes my face, so I was wondering should I stop the Vaseline and switch to Shea or Cocoa butter or what?
It seems you know exactly what you have to do! Yes try (try being the most crucial word, because if it doesn’t work you try something else) using shea butter or cocoa butter moisturizers. Let us know how it goes…
usgi asked: Keep up the good work over there. Bunch of beautiful women y'all post.
Thank you x
jenniferr-michelle asked: i legit cry everytime i look at this blog. everyone around me always says that dark girls arent pretty. im always getting made fun of. all the stupid jokes are getting really old. you would think that after 17 years i would be used to it by now my they still make me cry. whenever i look it this blog it reminds me that dark girls are pretty too, but then i look and the mirror and i dont feel that way. im really starting to hate me skin color. this blog is the only thing that keeps me sane
No one should ever get used to being bullied, because that’s what it is when someone intentionally goes out of their way to behave in way intended to hurt another person, physically or mentally. So at no point should that be something you get used to.
You have the negative thoughts of other peoples opinion on dark skin, it’s not your own thoughts that you see when you look in the mirror. When you look in the mirror you dismiss everything that is beautiful about you, because all you see it a color that someone has told you is not beautiful.
So next time you look in the mirror, don’t look at your skin tone. Look at your features that shape your face, the individual molds that are unique to you and you only. Look at these features and ask yourself what you like about them, how can you not see your beauty?
Now confidence in your beauty is not going to come overnight, but gradually you can learn to love yourself and your skin tone.
You can’t control how other people think, but you have full control of your own thoughts. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.
vickiesandciroc asked: What do you think is the best brand of makeup for darker richer skin complextions? I tried Loreal True Match but i felt like it wasnt buildable. (if im saying it right)
Fashion Fair is really good for darker skin tones.
