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 Executive Editor and Beauty Director at Glamour, a columnist for the Observer newspaper and a former beauty editor at British Vogue where she also wrote a beauty column aimed at women of colour. In her 20 years’ experience as a fashion and beauty journalist, she has also written and worked for numerous publications including The Sunday Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Guardian, Elle, Marie Claire and Tatler. Funmi also consults for and has worked with a wide variety of global beauty brands and has spoken on numerous panels covering topics relating to beauty, identity, race and journalism.
