I think it's here:QuoteEveryone had to wear the exact same makeup (we were even required to buy an exact shade and brand of eyeshadow, lip gloss, etc. for uniformity
Saying that everyone has to wear the exact same makeup, down to the shade, is not allowing for any variation in skin tone (let alone actual racial differences). Now, I suppose it's possible that the community didn't actually have anyone who wasn't of the same ethnic background and that there weren't any skin tone variations, but that is pretty much unbelievable. I wear the palest ivory makeup, and it looks ok on me (I'm usually not wearing any at all), but it makes my daughter look jaundiced, and I can't even imagine what it would look like on someone who had even darker complexion.
The same eyeshadow and lipgloss colors have nothing to do with skin color. If they were all told to wear the same foundation I might see that arguement, but it's eyeshadow.
They're not going to look the same on different skin tones, though.
Same makeup would also mean foundation, which is where HoneyBee42 is going, I think. Most (not all) teen girls are not comfortable without foundation and usually blush. Hope you dissenters of my post are correct. I also agree with Harriet Jones.
I still would like to know where and when this occurred.
