Beauty Full Stories Podcast - Dawn Konofaos


I’m so excited for this week’s guest!  Dawn Konofaos is a visual artist and baker who makes the most beautiful cakes.  Dawn and I had a candid conversation about colorism, racism, the history of both and how they have affected her life as a dark-skinned Black woman.  We spoke a couple of weeks ago so this is a timely episode.

Our email question (50:00) is about easy lip color options that are a step up from clear lip balm.
