When deciding to do a blue eyeliner look, it was clear from the start that I not only needed to show how beautiful this plays on black skin but how it stuns on all black skin tones. Our blackness is beautifully hued and varied; we are a people made up of a multitude of shades but so often it’s our darker skinned sisters who are left out of the conversations around makeup for black women.

This co-washing creme is so much of the business that we can't even express how much. You have to try it for yourself so that you can witness this difference in styling alone.
