Black Entrepreneur Develops the First Hybrid Beauty Product for Dark-Skinned Women

Faridath Dibawssette, a makeup artist who is well known on Instagram, is expanding her reach of the critically acclaimed makeup foundation, Queendom Cushion Foundation.

DIBA, Dibawssette’s beauty company, was inspired by Korean beauty products to create a foundation that will allow dark-skinned black women to nourish their skin and look great at the same time. Based in Canada, DIBA’s vision is that nurturing health, confidence, and self-love is embraced by self-care according to their website. Even more empowering is the fact that her line focuses on black women whether they’re light-skinned or dark-skinned. According to, to DIBA, black women are queens, therefore the Queendom Cushion Foundation “promotes their natural shine, in the safest way.”

The Queendom Cushion Foundation’s effectiveness lies in the shades and ingredients Dibawssette developed, learning from her own experience dealing with oily, acne-prone and hyper-pigmented skin. She created the core ingredients to suit sensitive black skin and bring out the natural beauty of it. According to, “the formula combines not only a daily moisturizer and foundation but also essential vitamins such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Quinoa Extract, and Jojoba Oil, for complete coverage and naturally matte face.”

Even better is that the foundation is not only lightweight but long-wearing as well. Not to mention, Dibawssette is also committed to restrictive chemical production, refusing to do animal testing, and cutting out chemicals as well as additives that have side effects such as parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, and phthalates.

Dibawssette’s foundation also recently extended the number of shades for its brown and dark-skinned customers, releasing its line with nine new shades according to The Queendom Cushion Foundation is now known as one of the most efficient foundation ranges for dark-skinned women.
