It is likely that many black people have already found it difficult to find, mainly, a foundation that corresponded to their skin tone . Although this situation is changing little by little, it is not as if the problem is already solved. Thinking more about the diversity of people, Selena Gomez announced that her new cosmetics line, Rare Beauty , inspired by her latest album , will have 48 base tones . It is not necessary that this novelty made the fans very happy, right? After all, it’s past time for brands to understand the plurality of colors that exist in the world.
Selena Gomez has been talking about Rare Beauty since the beginning of the year and in an interview with Interview , stated that her goal is to increase people’s self-confidence. “I want to start a conversation about how you can feel good. It’s not necessarily about needing these things to feel beautiful. People of my generation have all this pressure to follow standards and I wanted to create a line that would alleviate that a little bit” , declared the owner of the recently released single “Boyfriend” .
Complaints about the lack of diversity in the cosmetics industry are already an old agenda for those who work and fight in this field. One of the first to revolutionize this market was Rihanna , with Fenty Beuty , when launching a line with 40 base tones . Even today, Riri is praised for owning such an inclusive brand. Do we have someone inspiring Selena Gomez? I hope so. For more news, just keep an eye on Purebreak here .
