Living in a tropical country, we, Filipinos are naturally born with a tanned skin tone. And naturally for us morenas, we long to use products that befit and accentuate our natural Filipino color. However, for many years, local makeup brands notoriously tend to cater only to those with lighter skin tones exclusively. Hence, for the morenas that came before us, finding the perfect makeup for their tanned skin tone was a struggle. Thankfully now, more and more local companies are embracing the Filipino color.
Ranging from cosmetic companies known for multi-use pots to foundation products… Here are makeup brands that cater to your morena skin tones:
