Like myself, Kymani founder of NAAM| Reimagine Africa has also shared doubts about being able to experiment with makeup as a dark skinned woman. When so many of the products don’t suit you and none of the ads look like you, you internalize the message that maybe makeup just isn’t made for you. Luckily things are changing.
Makeup is the art of accentuating natural beauty and it is for everyone! It is an extension of mood and personality. Feeling fierce? Rock a bold winged liner to match your attitude. Feeling fabulous? There’s lashes for that. Feeling shitty? Try a popping hot pink lip…no one will know the difference. My point is makeup is an accessory. It’s fun! Don’t overthink it, just experiment and enjoy!
