Kelly Rowland Is Launching A Makeup Line for Dark Skin Tones

Fashion

Quality makeup options are shamefully scarce for anyone who has a dark skin tone, and singer Kelly Rowland knows it. In order to fill this gap in the beauty industry, Rowland decided to launch a glamorous makeup line for people with darker skin tones, officially speaking on behalf of all the women of color out there. She is thus thinking about a makeup line that is meant to be more inclusive rather than exclusive, in contrast to most of the makeup products that are available at any drugstore.

Kelly Rowland Is Launching A Makeup Line for Dark Skin Tones

Although Kelly Rowland did not officially set a debut date for her makeup line yet, the good news is already hitting the headlines, letting us consumers not only feel excited, but also finally have a serious conversation we so desperately need to start: the tremendous lack of representation of women of color within the beauty and fashion industry. Many brands have tried or are still trying to include makeup pieces for darker skin tones in their collections, yet in fewer numbers in comparison with the average lighter products. Most of the times those with darker complexion find themselves in a dilemma of choosing between a meager spectrum of colors, such as ‘tan’ and ‘brown’, as the motto ‘one shade fits all’ is too often mistakenly followed by women of color.

Brands such as Cocoa Swatches, Queen by CoverGirl, Black Up and Sephora, for example, have their own specific powders, foundations and concealers for women of color, to the pleasure of those who are living in a Caucasian country. These options are, however, less variegated compared to the ones meant for fare skin tones, and the Grammy Award-winner is determined to change that for good.

Speaking exclusively with Essence, Kelly Rowland explained why she specifically chose to take such an incredible and important adventure: “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,” she told, “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!”

Given the fact that Sheika Daley is the one blessed with many artistic and beauty skills and does the makeup not only for Rowland, but also for Serena Williams and Lala Anthony, the results cannot be disappointing for sure! She is known for using a light coverage and a flawless touch, so whatever comes from her work will very likely add some divine vibes to any look.

Aside from adding beauty ambassador and businesswoman to her CV, Rowland is about to launch a new album and release a book too, which she regarded as being ‘exciting’ but is still shrouded in secrecy. “[I] “can’t even say what it is yet,” she said. What a busy year for Kelly Rowland!

Fendi Keeps the New Haute Joaillerie Watches in the Family

Other Brands

Name three things that come down best in the family? Cuisine, temper, and fashion style… Italian luxury brand Fendi agrees with us; announcing the brand’s new collaboration on capsule watches with the daughter of co-creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi – dazzling jeweler Delfina Delettrez Fendi. Doubling the Fendi impact? The result should be something unique!

Delfina Delettrez for Fendi Policromia Watches

Well, the result is actually a haute joaillerie collection named Policromia, which means the art of combining different colors in an artistic way. This already gives us a pretty clear idea what the Delfina Delettrez for Fendi watch collection is all about – colors. But wait, there’s more to the designs than just colors. According to the designer herself, the inspiration for the watches lies in the geometric shapes and the layout of the Palazzo Della Civilità Italiana. For starters, that’s where the Fendi headquarters are located. There you go, a true Fendi collection from the family and the heart of the brand… do you really want to miss out on this?

Silvia went on telling WWD more about her inspiration, “To me, the Fendi palazzo itself is like a huge watch,” said she. “It’s a game of light and shadow and it’s home to incredible marbles.”

The inspiration was translated into the watches perfectly, featuring blocks of colors, shapes, and contrast. It all starts with the white diamonds nestled by the malachite and delicate blue mother-of-pearl. All watches contain an internal Swiss watch mechanism.

How about adding more luxury to the piece, like alligator straps fastened with 18-karat-gold buckles? With this design on your wrist, you should keep your hands to yourself… at all times. The watch is in a round shape and is suited for picky customers that don’t miss a chance to reiterate their love for detail. Get excited, there is a lot of detail on these small creations.

Fendi’s CEO Pietro Beccari decided to add some more hot water on the interested parties that were craving to get their hands on the watches. He stated, “Fendi is quite well-known for offering customers the possibility of really getting wild with the fantasy to build the bag of your dreams, the fur of your dreams, and wanted to offer this also to our watches in order to make them more and more an integral part of our positioning.”

Policromia was unveiled by Silvia Venturini Fendi herself this weekend. The event took place at Baselword and announced the price range for the collection. Are you ready? Take a deep breath and a comfortable seat… the designs will have a retail price starting from €3,000 to €150,000, depending on the extravagance of your taste. Why? Because it’s not only Fendi, it’s double the Fendi.

In fact, this is the first time the jeweler collaborates with this fashion house. Her past experience includes numerous collections that have been presented on the best catwalks, but this collection proves to be amazingly unique and special.
