I was super excited to receive products from Maréna Beauté because they are a brand that makes products specifically targeted toward darker complexions.
According to their website: “Maréna Beauté is a Swedish cosmetics brand providing high quality products for darker skin types. The color palette of the makeup collection was exclusively developed to match complexions of consumers of color.
Behind the Maréna Beauté makeup brand is Swedish makeup artist Diarry Maréna. Originally from Senegal, Diarry arrived in Sweden as a teenager. Here, beauty and cosmetics became her true passion and she has accumulated more than ten years of experience as a makeup artist, over the course of which she has also studied color analysis in New York. Maréna Beauté is the product line which sums up her extensive experience from professionally working with darker-complexioned models. The result—a high-quality makeup collection with precise coloring to match a vast array of skin tones.”
