Our Story

Welcome to Nubian Shades. I started Nubian Shades to provide quality, natural and effective makeup for the diverse skin tones of women of color. In my experience, many cosmetic companies don't address the specific needs of brown skin, which leaves us searching for years to find products that work for us. In addition, several cosmetic companies include minimal shade options for darker skin tones. So instead of developing an assortment of colors for ethnic skin, they simply limit our options and in turn we have a hard time finding a suitable match.

We as women of color have distinctive needs for cosmetics that help make us look good when we face the world. My mission is to provide all natural mineral makeup that enhance your natural beauty without causing irritation or that make you look unnatural or ashy by the end of the day. In my all-inclusive line of beauty products you will find mineral foundations, mineral veils, and all-natural lip glosses. And to help with the application, I supply a selection of cosmetic brushes to help master the art of beauty.

I respect the conscious consumer who prefers cosmetics that are all natural and chemical free. All of my beauty products are formulated without the use of synthetic preservatives, parabens, synthetic fragrances, fillers, bismuth oxychloride, FD&C dyes, silicones, petroleum derivatives, lakes or dyes. Instead, I use ingredients that are healthy for the skin and beneficial to people with acne and dry or sensitive skin types. Because of the fact that I do not use irritating or pore clogging ingredients to handcraft my cosmetics, you can rest assured that your skin will receive nothing but the best that nature has to offer.

Nubian Shades is a family owned business. My husband, son and daughter work closely with me to help things run smoothly. We always strive to provide you with exceptional customer service. If you have a question, call me or chat with us. If we're busy taking another call or processing orders, please leave a message or send me an email and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.

If you’re new to Nubian Shades or have been with us for years, I’m sure I will not only meet your needs but exceed your expectations.
