As women of colour finding the perfect shade of lipstick or foundation can be a daunting task. Only very few good make-up companies cater to our needs and then, not perfectly.
Ofunne Amaka started her Instagram page called Cocoa Swatches to address this problem. On her Instagram she showcases the latest makeup swatches on various complexions.
Her page was greeted with a collective grateful sigh of relief from women of colour round the world.
Now she has gone ahead to build an app with the same name – Cocoa Swatches! The app is available on Android devices as well as iOS and can be downloaded on both phones and tablets.
The app is amazing as with it, you no longer have to search endlessly for shades that suit your skin colour- everything is laid out perfectly based on the colour you are searching for.
Indeed beauty is going through a revolution championed by Nigerian women!
