Rowland rolls into the makeup industry

While the fashion industry is slowly becoming more inclusive of different body types and sizes, the makeup industry is also about to get a little more inclusive with the help of singer Kelly Rowland.

According to The Huffington Post, Rowland told Essence magazine on Monday, March 21 that she will be launching a makeup line especially for dark-skinned women.

Partnering with her makeup artist, Sheika Daley, Rowland said they will begin the line with lashes and grow it from there. However, they will be “definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there!,” said Rowland. “We have to have that, you know. I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!”

The Huffington Post reports that her line will join other products for darker-skinned women, including  Cocoa Swatches and Queen by CoverGirl.

While no release date has been announced, the line is certainly something to watch for.
