Since her days in Destiny’s Child, we’ve known Kelly Rowland to be a vocal powerhouse and effortless beauty. Now, she is showing us more of her entrepreneurial side. In the past month, the singing vet has premiered “Chasing Destiny”, her docu-search for the the next big girl group on BET. She has also had our faces patiently waiting to be beat by her forthcoming makeup line for “chocolate girls”.

After telling ESSENCE about the line created in partnership with her makeup artist Sheika Daley, we knew  it would provide coverage for even the deepest of shades – and kick off with lashes. Now, she has revealed the inspiration for starting the line: an epic beauty fail.

“This [makeup artist] made me so pink,” Rowland told in a recent interview. “And then she tried again and I was green. She tried again and I was way fairer than what I really was—my neck and my face were a different color. She tried, and I can’t be mad at her for that, but it just, it was an epic fail.”

Her new line, ‘For All Created Equal’ is “makeup for everybody,” said Rowland.” I think that a lot of women of color will sometimes feel like their color either is discontinued or, you know, not there…And I am making makeup for everyone. I’m going to make sure that I nail every single foundation and concealer color for women.”

No word yet on a launch date yet, but we’ve got our lash glue and makeup brushes on the ready.
