So, I was reading in an esthetician text book today about hair colors and how certain color makeup works better based on hair colors.
For example the following lipstick shades are best with these hair colors:
Blond: Soft pink, lilac, pale orange, soft wine-red, clear red, soft earthtones
Brunette: beige, clear red, coral, true pink, rose-red, wine-red, plum, soft orange, strawberry-red
Red: Apricot, soft orange, soft rust, golden peach, soft pink, coral, clear red
Black: all colors; may be slightly deeper than for lighter hair.
So maybe since black hair can get away with all of these colors, they didn't even bother?
My book only has this chart for lipcolors, not for skin products or eyes, so I dunno if it applies to all products, but there you go. This also explains the concept of makeup to coordinate with hair!
