I sat down with beauty legend @iammikkitaylor to discuss why it is so important for Beauty brands to create products for the needs of women of color. Too many of us have experienced pain and deep embarrassment in the makeup chair and drugstore aisle. Just this week, actress @nicolebyer penned an essay for @lennyletter expressing the same frustrations. Even @kerrywashington said that Neutrogena didn't have her shade when she signed as its ambassador; she took it upon herself to make sure that quickly changed. @iammikkitaylor couldn't have said it better. Thank you Mikki for taking the time to sit down with me, your brilliance and incredible spirit is infectious πŸ‘ŠπŸΎ#NoOneAsked (Full interview on @refinery29 now / link in BIO) ) @cdrdrcdr @lyric_leigh @ron.douglas

I decided to do an investigation into the history of foundation and why, systemically, there has been such slow change to the beauty industry when it comes to making products for women of color. No One Asked is a series dedicated to uncovering both the background and current dichotomies impacting the beauty needs for women of color around the world. EP 1 is live and on @refinery29! Check it out, educate yourself and spread awareness. Link is in bio #NoOneAsked

For most, trying and buying cosmetics is a thrill; to me, it is the source of deep anxiety and complete dread. As a woman of color, I've had more than my fair share of humiliating experiences in the makeup chair at makeup counters and department stores. Rather than be complacent, I decided to write about it and do a historical deep dive for R29 Video. After months of hard work and the incredible support and love from my beloved @cdrdrcdr @lyric_leigh @pieraluisa @ron.douglas @nataliagrosner @brandoncolewidener @catquinn (among many more) -- "No One Asked" is LIVE! Article and Video in my bio. (P.S: Kudos to @ctilburymakeup's Magic' Foundation Broad Spectrum in 9, bless up πŸ‘ŠπŸΎ) #NoOneAsked
