Also worth noting: It's incredibly rare to see a woman of color with Nyongo's skin tone in a foundation advertisement. Because of the institutionalized racism still prevalent in the beauty industry, women with darker skin tones are often significantly underrepresented. But, the foundation featured — the Teint Idole Ultra 24H — comes in 28 shades. Kudos to her for representing a product that, in turn, represents such a wide range of skin tones.
We can't wait to see the rest of this sure-to-be-lovely campaign. Stay tuned for more, and in the meantime, let us know what you think of this first snap.
