I had the pleasure meeting three young ladies, Aleena, Aleezeh and Naseeha Khan during their visit to Los Angeles. They identify themselves as citizens of the world: being born in the U.S., raised in the U.A.E., with Pakistani ethnicity. Aleena, Aleezeh and Naseeha are currently based between London and Dubai, and are the founders of CTZN Cosmetics.
The creation of their line came when shopping for cosmetics at a major retailer. They realized that not a single model in mainstream beauty looked like them. The CTZN founders soon learned that many of their friends of color felt the exact same way about their own demographics being underrepresented in industries such as beauty. They also noticed that the lack of diversity in the beauty industry spans way beyond skin tones and gender. The mission became clear to them: to truly be an inclusive makeup brand, CTZN Cosmetics needed to be genderless, catering to all skin tones.
