The beauty industry brings in big bank, but there's still a disconnect between brands and shoppers when it comes to making sure everyone feels "represented."
Beauty aisles and counters have undergone a dramatic makeover. A decade ago, the selection of cosmetics and skin and hair care was largely driven by a small group of manufacturers and the industry’s history of perpetuating blond European women as the faces of beauty. But in the past ten years — and in the past year especially — a shift to creating products that are inclusive of America’s diverse population has radically transformed the beauty space as we’ve come to know it. This is why Yahoo Lifestyle is thrilled to announce our second annual Diversity in Beauty Awards (the DIBs), which highlight the personalities , brands, and products that embody inclusiveness and innovation. The leaders of this movement? None other than the shoppers. Frustrated with wasting money on hair care that doesn’t live up to its promises, mixing multiple foundations to find the right match, or engaging with campaigns that present one image of beauty as superior to others, consumers are no longer settling or remaining silent. Social media has given them a platform to call out brands for their shortcomings and communicate that they will spend their hard-earned dollars only on products that meet their needs. Industry insiders refer to this seismic shift as the “Fenty Beauty effect,” linking it to the groundbreaking launch of Rihanna ‘s beauty line in 2017, when the singer-turned-cosmetics mogul unveiled a 40-shade foundation range that reflected her rainbow of fans and followers. Our judges gave Fenty Beauty the “Most Inclusive Foundation” nod in this year’s DIBs Ginger King, the founder of cosmetic product development company Grace Kingdom Beauty and one of our 2018 judges, believes Rihanna’s connection with beauty fans contributes to the brand’s success. “With her celebrity status and that kind of drive, you have people saying, ‘Yeah, we have been waiting a long time for this. Finally, someone has spoken up for us,'” King says. Tellingly, Fenty Beauty’s darker shades sold out first. Some brands, including Iman Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, and NARS, have always offered a wide range of makeup for different skin tones. But many brands still offer just an eight or 16-shade foundation line with an average of two deeper hues. The financial impact of women of color shouldn’t be overlooked. African-American consumers buy into beauty more than any other ethnic group. According to a recent Nielsen report, last year “black shoppers spent $473 million in total hair care (a $4.2 billion industry) and made other significant investments in personal appearance products, such as grooming aids ($127 million out of $889 million) and skin care preparations ($465 million out of $3 billion).” For the 2018 Diversity in Beauty Awards , Yahoo Lifestyle’s editors collaborated with six experts who champion diversity in their careers and cover all bases of the beauty industry to vote on the best in makeup, skin care, hair care, and more. Judges include celebrity hairstylist Vernon François , wellness advocate and personal trainer Massy Arias , beauty vlogger Ellarie , cosmetic chemist Ginger King , celebrity makeup artist Joanna Simkin , and Beauty Director Dana Oliver of Yahoo Lifestyle. A Diversity in Beauty Awards seal is awarded to winners in 16 categories, including the Influencer for Change award to beauty king Patrick Starrr, Beauty Campaign With a Powerful Message award to CoverFX for its thought-provoking “Nude Is Not Beige” campaign, and awards for Best Inclusive Foundation and Best Beauty App .
