Beauty Knows No Boundary with Ashley Brooke | Maybelline

January 28, 2021

One of my favorite projects that I’ve done on my Instagram has been my collaboration with Ashley Brooke.

Ashley and I are on different ends of the makeup spectrum. Ashley often has a hard time finding foundations that enhance her natural tone without changing its hue, due to her fair complexion. While I spent years waiting for brands to even consider making foundations in my shade; much less with enough undertone options.

With the knowledge of knowing the beauty struggles we decided to birth, Beauty Knows No Boundary. With this edition of Beauty Knows No Boundary, we decided to try full faces of Maybelline products! We use all of the same products and they’re linked below with my shades noted!
