Kelly Rowland: 'A great outfit can change your whole world'
Kelly Rowland wants to create a make-up line which "nails every single foundation and concealer colour for women".
Singer Kelly Rowland makes herself feel better if she's having a bad day by putting on a fabulous outfit.
The former Destiny's Child star has always been partial to a gorgeous gown or a stylish ensemble and during a chat with Elle.com, she opened up about a recent shopping trip, which reminded her exactly why clothing is so important.
"The other day I was in Bergdorf Goodman (store) and there were these snakeskin, multicolour Louboutin pumps that I bought," she said. "They are beautiful. For a second I was like, 'They hurt!' and my sister was like 'It doesn't matter... you take the pain and you take it well because that shoe should go everywhere you go!'"
As her sibling was giving her speech, Kelly noticed her whole body language had changed because of the shoes, she was more upright and poised and instantly felt happier.
"I was like, 'I should get the shoe' because it didn't matter whether I put it with a beautiful dress or even jeans and a white shirt, it's going to change my mood," she added. "And it did. If you're having a sh**ty day, you can put on a great outfit and it can change your whole world."
It isn't just clothes which have this affect on Kelly - cosmetics do too, and it's prompted her to develop her own make-up range, called For All Created Equal, with her make-up artist Sheika Daley.
"It's make-up for everybody," the 35-year-old explained. "I think that a lot of women of colour will sometimes feel like their colour either is discontinued or, you know, not there... And I am making make-up for everyone. I'm going to make sure that I nail every single foundation and concealer colour for women."
