Get to know the woman behind the Blushes & Brushes brand – Bunmi Shonibare
More and more women are starting businesses these days – especially among Black women with a passion for beauty. Bunmi is one such woman. A medical doctor by training, Bunmi founded blushesandbrushes.com in 2015 to put an end to the ghettoisation of afro cosmetics and make product shopping for men, women and children of colour a more pleasurable experience.
She believes that each customer is more precious than rubies - therefore deserving of an online store as unique as they are. Blushesandbrushes.com is home to a variety of products to suit any budget – you are sure to find something just for you!
Bunmi shares her current three favourite products -
“Being a doctor, I can't wear nail polish on my fingernails but I love to wear bright colours on my toenails and choose a subtle nude for my fingers on my days off”. The OPI Do You Take Lei Away is a perfect nude shade.
“This is an amazing leave-in for natural hair. It really leaves my hair conditioned and eliminates frizz. I even use it for twist outs.”
“I love this oil because it is very light and non-greasy. I use this at night all over my face to keep it radiant and on my body to keep those ashy elbows and knees at bay. Works a treat!”
