Adwoa Aboah debuts makeup with a message
When she’s not fronting the covers of magazines like British Vogue and i-D, English model Adwoa Aboah is an outspoken advocate for mental health. In 2015 she co-founded Gurls Talk—an online platform for young women to discuss everything from self-care and relationships to depression and anxiety. Now, Gurls Talk has teamed up with Revlon to launch three limited-edition makeup kits designed to promote body positivity and mental wellness.
Aboah, an ambassador for the brand, chose three women to represent the kits’ themes. Tasha Jane Bishop, founder of The Pants Project, is the face of the Celebrate Every Piece of Yourself kit: a yellow and gold set focusing on feminine health. Scarlett Curtis, founder of The Pink Protest, personifies the blue It’s OK to Feel Everything kit, which emphasizes mental well-being. Lastly, Mofe Sey, a member of the Gurls Talk community, fronts the Dare to Love Yourself kit: a pink glitter set built around self-care. It’s pretty much what your 16-year-old self (or vestiges thereof) would dream of: a reminder to love yourself… that just happen to be the brightest, most colorful items in your makeup bag.—Andrea Navarro.
