Kelly Rowland's face has been looking all sorts of glowing lately, and while being a newlywed with a beautiful baby boy probably has a lot to do with it, she's not afraid to admit a little makeup goes a long way, too.
Now the gorgeous star wants to help you look your best, too, with a new cosmetics line she's launching with the woman to whom she trusts her own face. “My makeup artist Sheika Daley and I are actually starting a makeup line we’re making sure we make, well, we’re starting off with lashes and then we’re going to have it grow for all women,” she tells Essence. “But definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there! We have to have that, you know. I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!”
Kelly admits that some of her looks from her Destiny's Child days inspired her to start her own cosmetics line — just not for the reason you would think. “I remember going to Europe and there was this one makeup artist — I’m a chocolate girl, and she made me look pink,” Rowland told PeopleStyle. “And then when she tried again, I looked green. And then when she tried again, I looked way fairer than what I really am.”
“Because I love makeup so much, I would teach young girls who are learning about makeup and probably don’t know how to apply it, how to do their own skin color with makeup, and how less is more,” she added. “Teach them the different things about it — that would be so fun. I had to learn how to do my own makeup.”
Kelly is one of those lucky girls who looks amazing no matter what she has on, so we're beyond excited to steal a few of her beauty secrets. After cosmetics, she plans to launch a skin care line, too! While no launch date has been announced as yet, we'll be eagerly checking her social media feed from time to time for more details.
