After months of preparing and looking around my sister has finally launched her online shop Sable Beauty, with beauty products and makeup for all and especially dark(er) skin colours.
Be it foundation, lipstick, eye make up, beauty products, she has searched for those , based on her own (often frustrating) experiences of not finding products for her shade and skin tone, or products that go with her skin type.
The idea for Sable Beauty originated from a very personal beauty journey. It started a long time ago for a young girl of colour, who was mesmerised by the 80’s runways of inspirational fashion designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de La Renta, Christian Lacroix. They were notorious for breaking beauty clichés and confronting a wider audience with gorgeous darker skinned models, changing the perception of beauty forever.
However inspirational those days, this has not always resulted in a better, more inclusive service tailored to also meet the needs of woman of colour who love high-end beauty and skin care as much as any other woman on the planet, and acknowledging their diversity.
Shop is open and ready for order from wherever the globe you are.

Shamelessly reblogging myself.
