When it comes to makeup, I typically end up buying two different foundation shades in order to find a match. And even then, it’s never perfect.
For many black women, especially those who don’t want to shell out $40 or $50 for a high-priced foundation, drugstore brands are a staple. But those brands sometimes don’t cater to the range of skin tones black women come in.
Neutrogena is typically known for its skin-care products, but it also has a makeup line. Recently, the company brought Kerry Washington on as its brand ambassador and creative consultant.
Washington noticed that even though she was repping the company, there wasn’t a foundation that she could use because there wasn’t a range of shades suitable for brown skin.
“When I first started out at Neutrogena, there was not a foundation for me, and there was actually some pushback about that online, ” Washington said in an interview with Refinery29. “I very purposefully did not address it [then], because I knew that I was about to engage in this labor of love.”
The company heard not only Washington’s complaints but also the complaints of black women who wrote the company about the lack of diverse shades.
With Washington’s help, the company has now introduced four new shades to its Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20. And to make it a fun announcement, Washington actually surprised some of the women who wrote into Neutrogena with complaints.
“I wanted to personally deliver the message of our expansion and how proud I am of it, and it really meant a lot to me in particular when people asked about why Neutrogena would bring me on if there wasn’t foundation for women of color, ” Washington shared with a woman named Ebony in the video. “I’ve been working really hard on expanding our foundations.”How to qualify for food stamps How does davis blane do his tricks Tips for those who have never taught Microsoft surface pen how to remove tips what does inversely mean what does the name reese mean what does insolvent mean what does dpo mean How to put air in tires How to test for pneumonia Tips and articles on how to take care of a flute Flee time who heaven thrives we soar, fate, oh hero, tricks tricks for one is from what work How to get good at vape tricks what are olympic gold medals made of what does butt mean what are wet dreams How to use bongs what does fewer mean what does plan b do What are the 5 first ledge tricks to learn on a skateboard How do bussers get tips How to pronounce google?
