Kelly Rowland is Launching a Makeup Line for Women of Color


Kelly Rowland announced that she will be launching a makeup line for all the chocolate ladies out there and let me tell you, I am here for it!




Excuse me while I get myself together.

I’m sure all my fellow women of color can attest to the struggle of searching for the perfect shade of foundation or lipstick to compliment your skin tone. Luckily, Kelly felt the same struggle and wanted to do something about it. She initially shared the news with Essence last month:

“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,” but definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there! We have to have that, you know. I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!”

Kelly has been such a great inspiration for women of color from her early days in Destiny’s Child. Her grace, elegance, and beauty are just a few of the reasons we love her, and now we have yet another reason.

More beauty brands have definitely been making improvements when it comes on to offering a wider variety of products for brown girls. However, there’s definitely more need for diversity in the beauty isle.

We’re not sure of the exact launch date or even the name of Kelly’s line just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
