Self-Expression

True self-expression happens when everyone feels free to confidently be themselves. But the beauty industry hasn’t always provided the right access or tools needed for everyone to be who they are. We’re changing that.

We want to break down traditional beauty barriers and create a space where everyone feels welcome and is celebrated for who they are. Since certain communities aren't fully represented in beauty, we are starting by amplifying and investing in Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities and brands.
