Fashion Fair foundations, concealers and powders are formulated to match a variety of dark skin tones, including ebony. The company's lipsticks, blushes and other color cosmetics emphasize flattering deep and bright hues that are visible on dark skin.

Women of color have unique skincare concerns, including uneven pigmentation, raised scars and ingrown hairs. Ashy skin, a consequence of dryness, is another common problem. Fashion Fair's skincare line features products that address these issues. All products are available in versions for normal, oily and dry skin. Fashion Fair also offers anti-aging and acne-fighting products.

Sun protection is another important concern. Although the large amounts of melanin in dark skin reduce the risk of sunburn, unprotected sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles and premature signs of aging. It also increases the risk of skin cancer and exacerbates pigmentation problems. Fashion Fair's Vantex Moisturizer contains sunscreen, an essential component of all skincare regimens. This product contains natural antioxidants and skin smoothing ingredients that make skin look radiant while protecting against future damage.
