    My dad needs to watch this video I’m a dark skinned black girl and I like dark lip colours I think they’re more appealing on me but my dad lowered my self-esteem saying dark people shouldn’t be wearing dark lipstick it’s not flattering

    It’s ridiculous how black people hear racist comments about their appearance on a daily basis, and meanwhile more and more Caucasians are trying to appropriate other cultures to not look white anymore?!? I don’t know how many times I had to argue with someone about dreads (white people naturally get matted hair, not dreads, goddammit).
    Someone telling a black person that a certain product wouldn’t fit them is very narrow-minded and racist, and just like you said Jackie, on the opposite I think there’s even more options and it’s just a matter of playing with different shades! Thank you for this video, it’s always refreshing to hear you talk about this! <3

    I am white as white can be. The lightest foundation is usually too dark for me BUT the women with the darkest chocolate skin tone are sooooo sooooo beautiful. I find their skin so stunning!

  4. IThinkILeftMyCatInTheToaster says:

    I remember when I was little I saw a black women in a red dress and blonde hair and I thought she was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. funny how a child’s perspective is so open compared to an adults. we aren’t born to judge and criticize, we make the choice to be and that’s gross. ignorance is a choice at this point in history and that’s sad

    dark root are the lipliner for hair

  9. Skye Smith says:

    not to take away from the message of this video…but god damn the combination of your eyeshadow and outfit is absolutely stunning!

    I love this & I hope that this video can maybe help some of your younger viewers, or anyone who is feeling a little less than beautiful just the way they are.

    It’s crazy because I’m 100% full Mexican but I’m whiter than white and my family from my moms side is mostly dark skinned and they actually make jokes about how white I am and I’m insecure about it. It’s just crazy how people’s judgement can have such an impact on the way you view yourself. Love love love this video & the message behind it!

    Mary J Blige BEEN having blonde hair for a minute and she still rocks it to this present age. It’s just the matter of finding the right shade blonde for you!

  12. Jennifer Ellis says:

    I’ve always been jealous of how colors seems more vibrant on darker skin.

    BLACK GIRLS CANT WEAR RED LIPSTICK?!,!,!? girl im white and i think black girls look the best in red

  14. MrsDorset says:

    I’ve always had a love for burgundy hair, but I always thought I was too dark to pull it off. Thanks for the motivation because I’m so going to it. Side note: I’m glad to see you partnered with Bare Minerals. I’ve been using their products since 2005 and I think that they have ALWAYS done a great job of providing a wide range of products for us brown girls.

    Colorism is just as big of a problem as racism and people try to say it doesn’t exist πŸ˜’

    No lie, i think Jacky has talk show host potential.

  17. MyBeauty MyWorld says:

    Omg!! This just reminded me of how Hispanic/ Latinas wearing hoop earrings are consider ghetto but if a white girl wears them is cuteπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ love love your eye make up!!

  18. MDOffred says:

    Living in asia, the ultimate beauty standards for women is having a ‘snow white pale skin,’ no matter which region of Asia you go, that’s the ultimate beauty ‘goal,’ which is why you see a lot of skin products from asia uses words like ‘whitening’ ‘brightening,’ etc., never mind that not all asians live in 4 season countries with limited sunlight (tropical asian countries of course have people on the darker skin tones), never mind if they look sickly with the pale white skin or the foundations from asian beauty products are ashy on darker skin tones cos they cater so much to that lighter skin, seems like ALL of asia as a whole has this ultimate beauty standard.

    As someone who was born and raised in the south eastern part of asia, I have natural tan skin that’s probably enviable to people on the west who self tans, but considered less attractive in asian countries. But I never cared, never felt the need to use any whitening products save for the acne scars. So whenever the drug store clerk come up to me and recommend skin whitening products I just tell her “Yeah, no thanks. I don’t need to be whiter.” Not a dig on race, just a salty response to the typical beauty standard of ‘pale white beauty’ thing. The clerk seems to be confused as to why I am proud to have a natural tan skin (and very good one too, since i take care of my skin, just don’t wanna be ‘whiter’). Fuck that standard. πŸ˜›

    Girl I had to pause the video after the red lips part. I grabbed my brown lip liner, put on Rooch from Colourpop, highlighted my cupid’s bow and had to stunt on myself in the mirror at 3AM for a few minutes cause I looked damn good. I am so here for red lips on dark skin tones. YAAASS! ❀️

    As a white girl that recently got romantically involved with a dark-skinned guy, I’m embarrassed by how misinformed I have been about racism and just the subtle ways dark-skinned people are treated differently. Thank you for making this video Jackie, and thank you for using your platform to say this!!
