My name is Oluwatosin Aworinde, I’m 21 and I am the founder of WOC Cosmetics. My passion for makeup came from childhood always wanting to start too early; as soon as I was old enough I wanted to desperately try to get it right. I remember watching my first YouTube video and making a list of all the products I needed. My first foundation was a £3 drugstore and it was terrible, I also realised that the shade wasn’t really a skin tone that existed and the undertones didn’t suit me at all. This was the beginning of me realising that there wasn’t as much availability for darker women. This genuinely angered me and the best way I thought I could make an impact was to keep researching and to share this with others so they don’t have to struggle like I did. My obsession with skincare came much later after I realised that my makeup skills were improving, but that my canvas wasn’t as ‘smooth’ as it could be. This prompted me to delve in to the world of skincare to get to the point of giving my makeup a flawless finish. The main aim of this blog is to share with you guys reviews, tips, tricks, products and opinions on makeup and skincare brands/products best suited for women of colour.
Peace and love,
