Marjani Beauty Celebrates Women of Color
Love the Skin You’re In with a Beauty Company that Celebrates Women of Color.
It’s no secret that finding beauty and skin care for women of color can be a daunting process. Although many of our favorite beauty brands are stepping up to the plate by creating products for those with deeper complexions, there is still progress to be made. Add the fact that many of the images that are often used to advertise products, whether it be on a magazine cover, billboard or website usually do not represent those with deeper complexions.
Enter Marjani Beauty, an e-commerce site founded by Kimberly Smith, an Ivy League educated attorney and beauty enthusiast. In a recent pop up shop launch party, Sugar in DC, local beauty influencers and fashionistas had the opportunity to meet the woman behind the brand, hear her inspiration for launching the e-commerce site and savor delicious sips and bites while experiencing some of the products first-hand.
Smith, who was inspired by her extensive world wide travels, launched Marjani Beauty in late February to bring the products she loves to local women. It is a destination for a diverse selection of beauty products. It’s also the go-to destination to find products we know and love, as well as, independently-owned and international brands such as AJ Crimson, Marena Beaute, Afrodeity, and Melanie Mills Hollywood. The site is beautiful, easy to navigate and includes imagery of beautiful women of color. New products are added to the site bi-weekly. There is also a Buy It and Try It Foundation Match Program which allows you to try a sample of the foundation you have purchased. Try this program and many other great products on their website.
