The Beauty Bible for Women of Colour
By Funmi Fetto
Written by Vogue Contributing Beauty Editor Funmi Fetto, Palette is the beauty bible aimed at women of colour who are often left out of beauty coverage in mainstream publications.
'This ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind book is not only destined to become the beauty bible for women of colour everywhere, it is also a significant, relevant and influential voice in the conversation around inclusivity. Essential reading' Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief, Vogue UK
The idea for Palette came to Vogue Contributing Beauty Editor Funmi Fetto after years of being asked by friends, family and strangers on the street for advice on products suitable for women of colour, who often find themselves excluded from mainstream beauty coverage.
Following on from her career in journalism where she has extended the beauty conversation in publications such as the Observer - for whom she writes a weekly column - and written in an honest, elegant and engaging style, Fetto covers all the hair, skincare, makeup and body products available today which really work for women of colour.
Funmi Fetto is a former Beauty Director of British Vogue and currently Contributing Beauty Editor and Columnist there, with 15 years' experience as a fashion and beauty journalist. She has worked and written for numerous publications including The Sunday Times, Harpers Bazaar, Guardian, Elle, Tatler (where she was beauty director) and Vogue (UK and International issues). She is the author of Shopping For Vintage: The Definitive Guide to Vintage Fashion (Quadrille, 2007). As a Contributing Beauty Editor at British Vogue working under new Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful, she contributes features to the magazine and website, and also writes a Vogue online beauty column that focuses specifically on women of colour, the first of its kind.
