For Women of Colour, beauty has no skin tone. We look to a day, when women will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their heart. You are limited not by your skin tone but the size of your hope. The Complete Fashion and Beauty Box team celebrate diversity in our newest cover shoot campaign with two media personalities Folu Storms and Samantha Walsh tagged “Women of Colour” The campaign aims at supporting self love.
Here are some of their beauty secrets:
What is your beauty regimen?
Folu Storms: I keep it simple. Wash my face with a moisturizing black soap ( I’ll use a specialist face wash periodically if I have one handy but regular soap works just fine. About 3 times a week I exfoliate also using the mineral peel scrub from Sleek or pure Baking Soda.
After the wash I tone using a mix of Water and Apple Cider Vinegar and then seal/moisturize with pure Coconut Oil or a bit of the Ours By Juliada body butter (Shea Butter mix)
Samantha Walsh: I wash my face before bed. It’s really all I do when I remember.
What beauty product will you always be caught with?
Folu Storms: I always have my “Ours by Juliada body butter” which I use for head to toe moisturizing and skin conditioning.
Samantha Walsh: My lipstick
What is your go-to hairstyle?
Folu Storms: I have locks which are usually up in a high bun or just left down to be as they please!
Samantha Walsh: My signature low cut or hair in a bun (when I have hair)
What is your favorite beauty brand?
Folu Storms: Hmm Hard to say… I’m pretty impressed by Sleek who have affordable and effective skin care range. I love their Sunscreen. Also I just discovered the Oriki products which are great. I swear by my Ours by Juliada body butters and a close favourite is also the Ajali souffle butters as well!
Samantha Walsh: Iman or Zaron are my go to beauty brands
Which hairstyle will you never get caught wearing?
Folu Storms: I can be pretty adventurous so I won’t say never but it’s unlikely that you’ll see me (as myself) with relaxed hair. I have no intention of cutting my locks in the near future or putting chemicals like that in my hair ever again. But maybe a weave for a movie role. Who knows!
Samantha Walsh: Afro
What is your favorite perfume brand?
Folu Storms: I’m in love with Oud Oil perfumes, my absolute favorite. Other than that, Guerlain and Givenchy are my loves.
Samantha Walsh: Amouge
