Comcast Xfinity and FaceForward Productions are hosting a special “black carpet” premiere event for the upcoming 3-part docuseries.
From creator and executive producer Andrea Lewis (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Black Actress); and executive producers Emmy-nominee CJ Faison (Giants & Junebug), Jackie Aina, Kahlana Barfield Brown and Keesha Boyd, the docuseries will spotlight the social change that has taken place in the beauty industry, as told from the perspective of the successful Black women who galvanized it. The Black Beauty Effect is set to premiere on Comcast Black Experience on Xfinity on November 25, 2022.
The Black Beauty Effect captures the current evolution, revolution, and disruption taking place within the beauty industry. Each hour-long episode examines a different aspect of beauty – hair, skin, and makeup – through the lens of some of the beauty industry’s most iconic game-changers. The Black Beauty Effect peels back the gorgeous glow we see in advertisements to tell the ugly truths that have plagued the beauty industry for far too long. Featuring candid conversations with brand executives, celebrity makeup artists, beauty editors, and more, the docuseries focuses on the impact influencers have had on the industry’s changing perception of beauty.
