Beauty is an ever-changing industry but when it comes to people of color it has always been challenging to find beauty products that work for us. Representation matters whether it be offering an inclusive shade range or diversifying models used in beauty campaigns. From the looks of the industry recently some beauty companies understand this and have come out with collections that include products that cater to deeper skin tones.
