In the latest BDB Beauty Bites instalment, BDB looks at Valentino’s first-ever make-up collection, TikTok beauty trends, and how the beauty industry reacted to the BLM movement over the past year. 

Valentino Beauty Launches its First-Ever Make-Up Collection

It looks like Zara isn’t the only fashion house to jump on the beauty train recently. Haute couture fashion house Valentino has launched its first-ever makeup range, Valentino Beauty, which includes 40 shades of foundation and 50 different lipstick colours. Inclusivity is at the heart of the collection and when formulating over 40 matte foundation shades, the brand conducted research on the skin tones of 5,000 women in eight countries across every continent. 

Since BLM Protests, Have Beauty Brands Made Real Strides Towards Diversity?

Inclusivity and diversity should always be at the forefront for beauty brands. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. This can be seen through a lack of representation of all skin tones, for example, in advertising, social media and foundation shade ranges.

This article delves deep into how the beauty industry has reacted to the BLM movement over the past year and highlights initiatives and examples of beauty brands making positive change in regards to diversity.
