As a girl of color (rich, chocolaty color that is) it would sometimes be downright heartbreaking to stroll the aisles of my favorite beauty boutiques and drugstores and see the selection of makeup available for women with medium to dark brown skin tones. So of course I thanked the heavens when someone put me on to IMAN Cosmetics (www.imancosmetics.com). Not only does the brand carry a variety of colors available in every shade of sepia, their Second to None Semi-Loose Powder ($13.99) is just as close to flawless skin as you can get. The oil-free formula won’t cause break-outs and goes on like a pressed powder, with the look of a loose powder. The lightweight consistency absorbs quickly to leave skin glowing. Quite possibly the next best thing to their selection of foundations are the lip palates and eye shadow duos. The new Glam Rocks collection ($7.99 – $12.99) of metallic and gemstone-inspired colors create high drama for eyes, and sheer-kissed shades for lips. Plus, it’s available at a price that’s easy on the pockets
