Makeup mogul is not on my resume but it’s on Irene’s. She’s a mom of 2, a makeup artist, and she has her own makeup line called Omolewa. Darker skin toned ladies needed more options, so she decided to create a makeup line that would help. Ballsy and brave!

She’s African, and multicultural African – she’s Nigerian AND Ghanian. And she’s also American. So she has a few cultures under her belt. She’s truly entrepreneurial and travels to Ghana and Nigeria regularly to sell her makeup, plus she runs another businesses at the same time. I love why she started her own line, and her take on why some women with darker skin may not be so confident is interesting. It’s something for all of us to consider when communicating with our children.

We really got into the real nitty gritty stuff!
On Nigerian vs. Ghanian culture…Jollof rice matters!
