Look who popped in to Grazia HQ yesterday afternoon! None other than British soul diva Beverley Knight. She wanted to tell us all about her new range of make-up, K, launching in Selfridges on 17 September. After 15 years in the music business and countless make-up trials and tribulations, Beverley thought it was time to get things straight. ‘My make-up has come out of necessity to be honest, as there is a real need for good base products for women with black, dark and Asian skin and there’s a huge lack of knowledge about skin tone and complexion,' she told us. 'Unfortunately there’s a lack of choice, with only two companies catering for this market and there’s a huge demand so I’m really proud that I’ve been able to create this range.' There are currently 10 shades of foundation and a powder range, as Beverly found base make-up was the hardest to find and create. Beverley explained that she spent a long time testing it out on her friends, family and on stage. ‘My backing singers would tell me if they thought the foundation wasn’t working after a set. I can rely on them to be brutally honest with me. Trust me, I had some disastrous foundation moments whilst testing!’ The range also consists of lip glosses, blushers and eye shadows (to name just a few). Beverley will be at her counter in Selfridges
The range will also be available in Selfridges stores nationwide, and will roll out to John Lewis stores later in the year.
