Sam Fine in Vogue Magazine

s: Luxx/TFS

There's nothing new or groundbreaking in the advice here but Sam addresses one of my main makeup obsessions, which is finding a "perfect" nude skin tone matching lip gloss. Unfortunately, he doesn't offer a concrete solution, so I'm stuck with mixing and matching light glosses with foundation (which I find can be drying.)

Still, it's nice to pick up a fashion magazine and read a makeup article that's targeted to brown skinned women. Apparently Sam is coming out with an instructional makeup DVD called Fine: The Basics of Beauty which is well and good but it's just as easy these days to find free instructional info for dark skinned women on Youtube.

Do you have any favorite instructional beauty bloggers? Women who post step by step instructions and/or photos as opposed to just hawking products?

I was thrilled to read the article about Sam Fine in Vogue! I've admired his work for years. I've seen other artists' make-up tips on Youtube and they don't hold a candle to the expertise Sam offers. I was lucky enough to view clips from Mr. Fine's upcoming DVD and the step by step demonstrations he presents on ordinary everyday women are nothing short of amazing. I can't wait to get my hands on the DVD when it becomes available in May. I hope I don't hurt anyone trying to grab a copy for myself and several additional copies for friends :)
