“I started learning how to do makeup when I was 15 and instantly fell in love with the art of it. That’s when I initially thought of the idea to create my own beauty brand. I wanted to create a cosmetic line that is inclusive for everyone. My “HERSHE” makeup collection not only focuses on the aesthetics of chocolate, but has a very important meaning. HER/SHE = HERSHE, are feminine pronouns. Makeup is an important aspect in feminine energy for most women. The confidence that makeup gives and the art of it is my favorite part of beauty,” she says.
Toni Clay’s perseverance and unflinching concentration on her main goal of unifying the beauty industry continues to prove worth it.
