Younger readers among you may not know of supermodel-from-the-80′s, Iman, but I’ve always loved her Somalian grace and beauty. Now 56, and still looking as stunning as she ever did, Iman has a hugely successful make up range for women of colour.

The latest launch is a multifunctional skincare and skin tone evening product for women with darker skin tones. Containing multivitamins, SPF 15 and essential botanical extracts, it evens out discolouration, hydrates, and protects your complexion in one step.
There are 5 shades in the range, and for my Anglo-Indian skin tone, Sand Medium was pretty much a perfect match for the summer months when I’m tanned. However it would be a little on the dark side in winter when I tend to get a bit sallow, so I would like to try the Sand Light in a few months time.
It feels light and hydrating on the skin and definitely evened out any areas of discolouration, however I did need a heavier concealer under the eyes.
Ingredients: Kokum, Almond, Aloe, Vitamins A, C & E and is fragrance and paraben-free. The website does state that this is not suitable for people who are prone to acne, but doesn’t explain why…
Available from feelunique.co.uk for £23.95. Unfortunately they only seem to stock 3 of the 5 shades though.
