When Is Gizelle Bryant's Makeup Line Hitting Stores?
The #RHOP mom reveals the heartwarming inspiration behind her new business venture.
After all of the craziness that went down during the girls' trip to Bethany Beach, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast members got back to business during last Sunday night's episode. Gizelle Bryant even revealed a brand-new business venture: a mineral makeup line designed for women of color. "It's very difficult for women of color to find tinted moisturizers and/or foundations that match their skin tone. And if they do find it, then it's ashy, then it doesn't have the ingredients in it that aren't irritating to your skin," Gizelle told The Daily Dish. "I'm trying to alleviate all of that. I want everyone to look beautiful when they wake up in the morning."
Gizelle's RHOP castmates seemed to enjoy the samples of her makeup line when they acted as something of a focus group for her new product during the episode. "My makeup focus group party was nothing but a huge success," Gizelle wrote in her most recent blog on Bravotv.com. "The ladies got to touch and feel the product, as well as discuss their personal concerns with their own makeup." And that's saying something, considering the fact that Ashley Darby and Karen Huger carried over their Bethany Beach drama into the event.
Gizelle, who is a self-proclaimed "girly girl" and lover of "all things makeup," has made a lot of progress on the line since then. Her company is planning on launching a tinted moisturizer first around mid-2016 and then build up her makeup empire from there, she told The Daily Dish.
The RHOP mom has now even thought of a name for her new makeup line. No, it's not going to be Caramel Cutie or Just Buy It, as Gizelle joked during Sunday's episode of RHOP, but a more apt title of Every Hue.
After all, trying to find makeup that will keep her skin looking and feeling great as well as that of women of all different types of skin tones, such as her own daughters when they start wearing makeup, is what gave Gizelle the idea for Every Hue in the first place. "It has been difficult for me to find things that don't irritate my skin and that don't have me looking ashy or a different color than what I am. So I was kind of trying to fix a need for myself," she explained. "And then also, my kids are brown girls, and I know when they get older, they're going to wear makeup, and I want to be able to give them something that's on the market that matches their skin complexion as well."
We can't wait to see Every Hue hit stores. In the meantime, get caught up on the much-less-heartwarming, latest beef between Ashley and Karen, below.
