My vision is to empower women, by example, change their mindset and ignite that fire within. Be Unapologetically YOU!
 

MEET THE FOUNDER

I had no idea I was going to be an entrepreneur. My background was all theatre. Bright Lights, the Broadway Stage, Television, Commercials, etc. you name it. A true thespian. Heavy makeup was never an issue until NBC created the first Black Family Soap Opera "Another World on national television. I portrayed the character Linda Metcalf. Now, a new genre. I was face to face, with a new television family, right in their living rooms and the makeup was heavy for television. Undeniably, I didn't like the way I looked or felt.. I mixed and matched in an attempt to find foundation colors, to accommodate my skin-tone. I realized for the first time the disparity for high quality products for women of color. I decided to do something about it. I took risk. Thus the genesis of Vera Moore Cosmetics and Skincare
