It’s definitely not a dream, @msjasminerose 😉 so incredible to have you as part of our campaign! #ultabeauty ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Repost @msjasminerose: Who woulda thunk, that I, a regular degular 2nd generation Haitian-American woman with chocolate skin & Type 4 hair from Brooklyn, New York, would end up in @ultabeauty stores across 👏🏾 these 👏🏾 United States 👏🏾 ? I’m still pinching myself only to realize that it isn’t a dream. It’s crazy because it didn’t feel real until I went inside of an ulta store in Jersey today and saw my face front and center! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On top of that, so many of my supporters on YouTube and Instagram have reached out and expressed that they're seeing me in the Ulta catalogs, stores, digital advertisements among other things, and how proud they are of me for reppin!
I am INCREDIBLY honored to be a part of the Ulta Beauty campaign because for so long, I dealt with insecurities about my skin, my hair and my facial features. It also didn’t help that growing up, I hardly saw women with my complexion and my hair texture in the media and so my perception of what was considered beautiful was skewed. I have since removed the “kinks” from my brain and began to embrace the person I was born to be.
It is my hope that little girls out there who don’t feel beautiful can walk into an Ulta store, see me and realize that beauty comes in ALL skin tones, hair types, shapes, sizes and then maybe, they can walk proudly with their heads held high like the beautiful QUEENS that they are ❤️
