“I’ve always been into aesthetics and design. The love and the passion for it have always been there,” Camille shares. “I like to experiment. I like put bold accents every now and then, but at the end of the day I make sure it’s young but sophistica­ted.”

As Camille showcases her closet and her go-to poses, she also recounts her mother’s principle on clothing: “Whatever you are wearing is important, and it is something that you should put time and effort into.”


The Kings, cosmetics supplier owned by couple Joey and Angie King, collaborat­es with Colourette Cosmetics as part of its celebratio­n of the Pride Month. For both parties, this is a meaningful partnershi­p as it “stands for diversity and celebrates the LGBTQ community.”

Inspired by Angie and Joey’s contrasts and complement­s with each other, the Kings and Colourette comes up with what they call Dualitint, lip tint packaged in a duo of unique shades and infused with Argan oil and Shea butter. “As we were growing together, Angie wanted to keep things very simple. So I would find products that would make her life simple. This is what I talked to Nina about—I wanted to have the packaging or the containers to be a dual and that’ s when we came up with the duality diversity,” Joey narrates.
