Kelly Rowland’s Working On A Makeup Line With Chocolate Girls In Mind
We’ll never get tired of news about a new makeup collection and when Kelly Rowland’s name is attached to a line, we get doubly excited.
The new mommy and wife recently chatted with Essence and spilled the beans on a new project which Black girls everywhere — especially those of a darker hue — can appreciate. The singer is planning to start a makeup line, following in the footsteps of Model Iman whose cosmetics collection has been catering to brown girls since its inception in 1994. “I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!” Kelly told the mag.
Actually she already is.
“My makeup artist Sheika Daley and I are actually starting a makeup line we’re making sure we make, well, we’re starting off with lashes and then we’re going to have it grow for all women,” Kelly said, adding that the two are “definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there! We have to have that, you know.”
Yes we do know.
Even though dark-skinned women have more options at the cosmetics counter these days, there’s still a shortage of hues that compliment deep brown tones, especially when it comes to foundation, as models Nykhor Paul and Leomie Anderson recently brought to light when they slammed makeup artists for not having shades in their skin tone for fashion shows. Who knows, maybe a year from now they’ll be able to say they’re rocking Kelly Rowland’s line on their gorgeous faces.
Are you excited about this news?
