A MELANIN REASONS WHY…
There are a million reasons why I decided to create TASNEEM Cosmetics, the most important reason relates to inclusiveness. I wanted to create a brand that celebrates all types of people, cultures and colours.
For many years I personally struggled with feeling the love when it came to makeup especially when finding the perfect lipstick shade, for some reason if you're 2 shades darker than "almond" you're going to face nightmare nudes and off-tone reds. Having had enough of being left out of the commercial beauty industry, I decided to create my very own custom lipsticks, with shades carefully crafted to suit not only my skin tone but also a variety of complexions!
Aside from providing a killer colour range and quality formula, TASNEEM Lipsticks are a 2-IN-1 product that can be applied to the lips, cheeks, and eyes. TASNEEM Lipsticks come double-ended with a matte lipstick on one end and a liquid lipstick on the other.
Being a third-generation South Asian woman living in a Western society I wanted to foster a brand that acknowledges and celebrates my personal cultural background along with a multitude of backgrounds. For too long brands and society have happily utilised people or colour for their appearance/aesthetic but not given them a voice/identity or even considered them in the development process of creating their beauty products.
My personal cultural upbringing has defined the person I am today, from appearance, mindset, interaction, and character. So I am making it a KEY focus for TASNEEM Cosmetics to unify Beauty, Culture, AND Colours!
HOW IT WORKS:
2-IN-1 lipsticks come with a full size matte lipstick and full size liquid lipstick.
All 2-IN-1 lipsticks are multi-diverse and can be used as a lipstick, cheek tint, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. Allowing you to create a complete colour matching makeup look, with just 1 product!
For lips - first, apply the matte lipstick for a pigmented and hydrating base, then seal with a thin layer of the liquid lipstick for long-lasting results.
For cheeks - dab the matte lipstick to the apples of the cheeks and blend out for a beautiful pigmented and hydrating cheek tint.
For eyeshadow - dot the liquid lipstick to the centre of the eye and blend out for a beautiful wash of colour that is water-resistant and long-lasting.
For eyeliner - dot and glide the liquid lipstick across the edge of the eyelid, customising your ideal winged liner look. Results are high defined pigment, water-resistant, and long-lasting.
