Kelly Rowland To Launch A Makeup Collection

Superstar Kelly Rowland has announced that she is set to launch a makeup line for women with darker skin tones. The Destiny’s Child legend’s career has gone from strength to strength over the years and now she’s turning her attention to make up.
Kelly was inspired to create a make-up range after the success of one of the world’s greatest supermodels. She told Essence “I think Iman has done a beautiful make-up line and I want to do the same”. She added “Definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered”. Kelly has often spoken out about her ‘chocolate skin’ and how she felt that dark skin had held her back. She once said in an interview with Nubian Planet “I went through a period where I didn’t embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown skin girl and being proud of that”. Kelly has recently spoken out to let the world know, like most women, that she’s had her own nightmares when it comes to finding her perfect shade of foundation. It’s likely she’ll draw upon her own experiences and ‘dilemmas’ (had to be done!) to help create her new line.
Kelly will be working alongside Sheika Daley, red carpet celebrity makeup artist from New York, and are rumoured to be kick-starting the launch of their new cosmetics range with lashes. Sheika started out in high fashion and editorials and then quickly moved into the entertainment industry where she’s worked with some huge names including Nicki Minaj, Serena Williams, Brandy and of course Kelly herself!

This isn’t the first time Kelly, 35, has worked on beauty lines as she previous concentrated on skincare as the 2014 spokesperson for Caress. She’s also had a hugely impressive career as a member of multiple Grammy Award-winning R&B band, Destiny’s Child, selling over 50 million records worldwide. Kelly then progressed as a solo artist and is due to release her fifth studio album in 2016. If this wasn’t enough, Kelly also became a household name as a film and TV actress, an author and popular judge on the X Factor. Is there no end to her talents? She certainly likes to work!

The release date of the range is yet to be announced, but could be set to join the big players in the makeup-for-darker-skin market including Iman Cosmetics, Black Opal, Black Up, MAC, Nars, Becca and Make Up For Ever.
