The Academy launches its new Black Beauty training

June 30, 2014

On June 26th, 2014, MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy Paris met up with Fatou N’Diaye, french beauty blogger, for the launch of its new Intensive Training « Black Beauty ».

Fatou N'Diaye, 36, is the creator of the famous beauty blog BlackBeautyBag.com. She created it in 2007 to share her passion and to promote black beauty, especially since she thought that there was little information in existing beauty magazines. It is by looking at what was happening on the other side of the Atlantic in terms of beauty innovation for black women that she decided to share her discoveries and beauty tips on the public space that is the blog. It is both a diary and a guide to beauty opened to her readers.

You are the creator of one of the most influential blog dedicated to black woman. What is your job?

I have been making a living off my blog for 3 years now, I am also brand blogger ambassador for the clothing brand Kookaï for the next two seasons. In addition to my blogging activity, I am also a consultant for major cosmetic brands and I am often led to travel abroad for beauty and fashion events where I lead conferences or beauty workshops.

You're always seeking tips to share with your readers. What role does makeup play in their daily lives?

Makeup is a form of expression and well-being. Through makeup, women express their personality, and we can also hide flaws. Just look at the representation a product like lipstick has. It symbolizes strength, glamor and sensuality. A woman who dares to put red lipstick on is a woman who is not afraid and who assumes her femininity and sensuality while remaining glamorous. Makeup is seen, it gives us a healthy glow and a woman wants to be seen.
Makeup plays an important role in the daily lives of my readers, mostly black women, known to be very self-conscious. Beyond a gesture considered futile by some men or women, I think makeup reassures women.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy launches its first training dedicated to makeup for dark skins. What do you think of this initiative?

I find this initiative from MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy excellent, training center of a respected and loved by all women regardless of their origin cosmetics brand.
Beauty is universal, all women like to be pretty and beautiful. It is time to address all these women because we live in a time where there is a lot of crossbreeding. Not to mention that the world population of individuals with dark, black and mixed skin is growing.
I find that in France, few Makeup Artists know how to sublimate black skins, especially for the foundation. Many women are left to fend in shops to choose the right color of foundation because they are often poorly advised. And for people who are not Makeup Artists, this type of training is perfectly suited, as it will allow them to learn how to apply makeup and how to sublimate their face.
