The Chemistry in Cosmetics (feat. Alyssa Space)
This week, Evann sits down with Alyssa Space, the founder of ForHerCosmetics. ForHerCosmetics is an all-natural, vegan and cruelty-free cosmetic line that helps women bring out their natural beauty within. Alyssa has a Bachelors in Chemistry from Michigan State University, and uses her knowledge to create products that are suitable and healthy for all skin tones and backgrounds.
In addition to creating lipsticks, glosses, highlighters and lashes, Alyssa also runs a STEAM enrichment program where she focuses on increasing the retention rate of young girls and boys in science related fields through alternative exploration. Alyssa’s “Chemistry in Cosmetics” program shows youth how they can use science to create their own beauty and skin products.
When it comes to cosmetics, Alyssa believes that women shouldn’t be afraid to step outside of their comfort zones just because of what society deems as suitable. Take a listen as Alyssa talks to Evann about her creative process, her favorite (and least favorite) makeup trends of the moment, and so much more!
