    Beauty & Fashion

    “I don’t want to look fake.” It's probably the most frequent thing I hear my clients and my girlfriends say when it comes to wearing makeup.

    In honour of Black History month, we’re celebrating notables who survived and thrived to become pioneers in the fashion industry.

    Dear Beauties: Let me introduce myself: my name is Christina and I help Brown skin women find their own self-expression, develop their personal magnetism and feel extra confident through makeup. I first started my career in the beauty industry ten years ago when I joined L’Oréal, the largest cosmetics company in the world. 

    Toronto-based fashion label, Kaela Kay has debuted its Fall/Winter 2014 collection full of its signature looks and staples.

    A preview of The Scandal Collection is out and I’m lusting over everything I’ve seen so far. 

    I love me some Olivia Pope of ABC’s hit political drama, Scandal. Especially ‘Livy’s’ style.

    To fashion worshippers, it is the Holy Grail and its believers include women the world over. Yet, the front pages of Vogue Magazine have often failed to capture the various complexions of the women who read it.

    It’s finally on the map. Especially since top designers such as Stella McCartney and Burberry have brought it onto the catwalk. And just as it’s many diverse countries in the continent, African prints come in an array of styles and prints. Ankara, Ntuma, Dumas, Super Wax, Java, Kente, Basin are some of its many names.

    Lack of diversity has plagued the fashion industry for years.  This is why Tom Ford’s announcement of 21-year old Nigerian-British model, Betty Adewole as the new face his Beauty Spring/Summer 2014 campaign is newsworthy.
