Both beauty and brains, Scarlet Were was chosen as model for Celfie Cosmetic’s newly established Shades of Life Foundation. The different lip shades of the new line will represent the company’s mission to cater to beauty from all shades of life. The proceeds will then go to the foundation to help raise drug addiction awareness. The charity’s focus is to fund poor families who are unable to pay for their loved ones’ rehabilitation expenses.
According to Scarlet, addiction is an illness that has impacted people from all walks of life across the globe. Every person addicted to drugs should be given the chance to recover through proper medical and psychiatric treatment. Scarlet emphasizes that these people should be shown with love, care and encouragement and she knows that her collaboration with Celfie Cosmetics will be for a worthy cause.
