Meet Our Diversity Advisory Board

Dear Glow Gang,

In June, we made a commitment to better support Black and BIPOC communities. For us, this work starts from within. We’re committed to making lasting change, and we realize that it’s important to include those with a wide range of experience and perspective in this conversation.

Our Diversity Advisory Board will be working with the Glow Recipe team to…

  • Ensure that we are serving our diverse community in our products, marketing, and content
  • Help leverage Glow Recipe’s platforms for social impact
  • Ensure that we are representing underserved minority groups
  • Test new products and give feedback
  • Work on various initiatives to support our minority communities through our Glow for Good Program

Please meet the members of our Diversity Advisory Board:

Lauren Elyse, makeup artist and drag artist, joins Glow Recipe's Diversity Advisory Board

Lauren also has a skin condition called vitiligo, which they openly talk about and showcase to their audience through their makeup work and discussions. They want to challenge beauty standards and demand more visibility and representation for those who are visibly different in a world that’s hyper-focused on looking “perfect.”
