Refinery29 Fashion just disturbed me with some BS.
In their latest beauty tutorial "How to pull off the most killer summer look with one magic ingredient: GOLD" they painted their model (not just her face and neck, but also EARS) to achieve a "Suddenly This Summer" hue.
Oh! And I mentioned it's inspired by "Gold" right?
"How to pull off the most killer summer look with one magic ingredient: GOLD
"Next, take and even DARKER foundation and apply to temples and cheekbones... and then blend. Don't forget your eye sockets and if you're daring, swipe it down the bridge of your nose."
I was so disturbed by this... so I proudly commented on the video.
AND SO DID OTHERS...
Next time, Refinery29 should just pick a model of higher melanin so they don't have to cheat "the look" they're going for.
Please & thanks.
