Karlie Redd, reality star from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, has recently re-launched her KR cosmetic line. Redd is all about making women of all shapes and shades feel and look beautiful. She has produced a new designer lingerie line called Karlie’s Angels, and now she is in the midst of launching her campaign called “Beauty, Branding & Business,” which will include live meetups with Redd where she will educate entrepreneurs on professionalism in the beauty and fashion industries and speak about the common misconceptions. Also, there will be tons of beauty experts on site sharing their knowledge and giving away goodies. With all the success Redd has had so far, who wouldn’t be interested in knowing more about her cosmetic line and her inspirations on creating Karlie’s Angels? Read on for the inside scoop.
Cliché: What inspired you to create your lingerie line?
Karlie Redd: I always knew that I wanted to design clothing and put out a line. As I’ve become more exposed to fashion and different lines, I noticed the lack of designer lingerie lines that were out there, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to start a lingerie line of my own. I recently partnered with L.A.-based designing duo The Sachika Twins who provided me with a great opportunity to work with them.
How would you describe the style of your Karlie’s Angels lingerie line?
My main concern for the line was helping women of all sizes to feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin. The line contains six different lingerie pieces with built-in contouring shapers for any body type. The collection will also feature three pieces inclusive of shaper dresses and bustier tops. The pieces can be worn with any outfit to fit any setting.
What sets your newly re-launched cosmetic line aside from others?
I strive to redefine the meaning of beauty for women. I wanted to create products that compliment women of all shades, and, ultimately, my line is designed to bring women together and avoid an atmosphere where women are putting each other down because of the way they look.
Can you recommended three products from your cosmetic line that you cannot live without?
The lipstick, eye shadow, and blush from my line are all great products that are must-haves.
