Beauty Inclusivity

Ruby Hammer MBE Beauty Editor

Inclusivity has always been at the heart of my career from makeup artistry
to brand consultancy and launching my
own brand.

I was born and raised in Nigeria, West Africa, to Bangladeshi parents before moving to South London in the early seventies. I have had many incidences in my life where having a minority skin tone has been flung in my face, but I have also used it as an asset driving me to make change… My identity does not force me to be inclusive –I choose to be inclusive! I choose to listen and educate others.

Beauty is personal and universal, a reflection of our values and our cultures. The notion that one person can define what is beautiful in modern society is outdated, the global reach of social media allows for unique and representative imagery to be seen by all.
Over the last month the atrocities highlighted in the media have made me pause and reflect on the industry and for this edition of Millionair I want to honour black founded beauty brands. We all need to see representation, have discussions on inclusivity and what it means to each of us and ensure that everybody can see themselves within the media.
