Kelly Rowland Is Working on a Makeup Line for All Women: 'We Have Our Chocolate Girls Covered'

Posted on

Kelly Rowland has been a source of beauty inspiration since her Destiny’s Child days — and now she’s taking her expertise one step further by creating a makeup like for all of her fans to enjoy.

about her quest to create the perfect beauty line, making sure all skin tones are covered.

“My makeup artist Sheika Daley and I are actually starting a makeup line we’re making sure we make, well, we’re starting off with lashes and then we’re going to have it grow for all women,” she said. “But definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there! We have to have that, you know. I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!”

Rowland knows first hand how difficult it can be to find your perfect shade — the singer recently told PeopleStyle that she’s had a few of her own foundation nightmares, which are bound to be of help when creating her new line.

“I remember going to Europe and there was this one makeup artist — I’m a chocolate girl, and she made me look pink,” Rowland told PeopleStyle. “And then when she tried again, I looked green. And then when she tried again, I looked way fairer than what I really am.”

And with such a passion for beauty, it’s easy to predict that her line will help girls everywhere find their perfect match.

“Because I love makeup so much, I would teach young girls who are learning about makeup and probably don’t know how to apply it, how to do their own skin color with makeup, and how less is more,” she shared. “Teach them the different things about it — that would be so fun. I had to learn how to do my own makeup.”

But makeup isn’t the only area she’s after — she also told USA Today that skincare is an area that interests her, saying, “I’m also the type of person that feels like we don’t need to be covered up all the time, so I want to eventually get into skin care as well, but I got to pace myself,” she told USA Today. “I keep having all these great ideas. Like, they’re all on my vision board, but I have to pace myself.”
