Make up general

Tips, tricks, product recommendations/questions, etc.
I've just started to get more into make up and now I'm trying to determine my skin undertone. The vein trick isn't working, and all I know is that I look better in deeper colours, and best in bordeaux and black, while pastels make me look ill (though dusty pink looks good on me). Gold jewelry looks better on me than silver though silver still looks decent. According to this it sounds like I have a yellow undertone, but for some reason I think I might actually have a neutral one. I don't know.
All African-American Maid Cafe?

I've noticed recently there's a trend of having a maid cafe at every anime convention, but a few have popped up that are only inclusive of African American maids. The more well-known one was Chou Anime Cafe from Detroit (that hired only African American maids and only Asian butlers), but now that they've disbanded it seems like there are a few other African American only maid cafes appearing? One called "Moe Maid Cafe" is currently hiring, and even though they don't mention anywhere in the application process a certain ethnicity is preferred, all of the current maids are African American... Also "Mint Chokoreto Meido" is another all-black cafe looking for maids.
I think that it would be cool at an African American cultural event, or something similar. But to me anime conventions are meant to be all-inclusive and something to bring people together through a common interest despite their other differences. Seeing a maid cafe in America that was 100% any race would be weird to me. And I feel like that plays up the fetish aspect of the cafe, which is definitely not the kind of attention a legitimate cafe is looking for at family-oriented conventions. I feel like this trend of non-inclusive cafes is the same line of logic as girls who spout lines like "Only real women have curves" etc, putting down and excluding others to draw attention to their own minority group.
