The Future of the Black Beauty Industry
Wed 30 October 2019 18:00-20:00
Attenborough Lecture Theatre 1
“When you don’t see people like yourself, the message is: you’re invisible. The message is: you don’t count. And the message is: ‘there’s something wrong with me.” In this talk on why representation matters, we will be looking at it from the lens of the beauty industry: how the sudden shift in advertisement, make up products, YouTube, and many more factors have greatly influenced the beauty industry, exploring the prominent black figures who are at the forefront of the industry. The event will also provide non-eurocentric beauty tips and tricks.
