A complete makeup line with colors for everyone, founder GraceAnn Long introduces Shades by Gal. The company’s mission is to create a cosmetic that includes every woman. “There’s a shade for everyone, a perfect match,” said Long.
This line is designed for different skin tones regardless of your ethnic background, and shades target the right color to compliment any skin tone. Colors are rich, fresh and fashionable.
The brand features every kind of makeup. There are 119 shades of eye shadow, brow tint, blush, concealer and mascara. A papaya-based toner and cleanser are included. The products are created with minerals infused with antioxidants and vitamins. Lipsticks are long-lasting and come in a wide variety of shades, too.
Although the company is only two years old, Shades by Gal participated in New York City’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for spring 2014. They supplied a professional makeup team and makeup gift bags for more than 16 fashion shows. They were also the official makeup sponsors for the Malan Breton fall-winter 2014 fashion show. The Shades by Gal line has sponsored major events, such as the BET Awards, the Grammy Awards, the movie premier of “Blue Jasmine” and the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
