Inclusive Beauty: Not A Trend, A Revolution - 1
The beauty industry finally gets its ‘aha moment’. Enter the renaissance age of inclusivity, this 2018. It’s the hot, new standard. For brands to stay true to your ethnicity and color and offer a diverse range of skin-correcting shades. Big #shoutout to Rihanna for paving the way though. Who all of a sudden threw a curveball by dropping not one but h-u-n-d-r-e-d makeup products. 40 of which, were just foundation shades, featuring the full spectrum of tones from the lightest to the darkest. They sold out and debunked the market myth that unconventional shades don’t sell. Hurray to that. ’Cause it made other brands join that narrative.
