Black Opal Takes a Step in a New Direction

Since 1994, Black Opal has been celebrating brown-skinned beauty by offering products that cater to our specific skin needs. However, since becoming one of the first cosmetics and skincare brands to solely cater to melanin-rich skin tones, it seems to have gotten a bit lost in the shuffle. In my opinion, the launch of similar lines and mainstream makeup companies finally addressing the void in the marketplace caused the brand to somewhat fly under the radar in recent years.

That's all about to change with the help of  celebrity makeup artist, Frank Guyton, who will serve as the brand's new Artistic Director. Under his guidance, Black Opal will continue to serve and take brown beauty to exciting new heights by developing color trends, shade palettes, cosmetic techniques, and more. First up, the lovely Paradise Passion and Colada Cocktail compacts for summer.

The Caribbean-inspired palettes will transform peepers into tropical delights. With bold shades of cool ocean blues, dazzling bronzes, and unexpected yellows, these shadows and shimmers capture the true spirit of the season.

Tropical Sizzle compacts will be exclusively available at blackopalbeauty.com starting June 21st

Do you wear bold and bright shadows during the summer or do you tend to stick to neutral palettes throughout the year?

I'm loving those colors! I need to experiment more. I'm attached to earth tones.

These colors are so outside of my ordinary makeup, but I think I'll give them a try. I'm an earth shades kind-of-girl too!
