The cosmetic industry is not speaking to me

Beauty blogger Jackie Aina believes the cosmetic industry is not doing enough for women of colour. The former make-up artist has more than one million YouTube subscribers. She believes it is harder for men and women to get hold of the right products. She says it is not as bad as it once was, but firms could still do better.

The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) said: "Cosmetic manufacturers are very aware that different skin and hair types require very different cosmetic product formulations."

It said: "Manufacturers of all sizes will do their utmost to ensure their products are made available to the intended segment of the market."
