About Us

” The art of making what does not exist exist”.

We believe your skin is the perfect color, and that your makeup should reflect that, making you feel like the powerful, stunning queen you are.
We understand that looking your best helps you feel your best, and when you feel your best, nothing can get in your way.

Born in Côte d’Ivoire and raised in Burkina Faso, art was a part of every aspect of life. As a first African immigrant, Raissa decided to pursue her passion in modelling and her adventure began. She experienced so many unjustified rejections based on the “perfect beauty standard”.

It is through this journey that the idea of starting a beauty brand “Raissa Yame Beauty” was born. An inclusive beauty place with a mission to uplift women of color by embracing their uniqueness and be seen for who they truly are.

As part of our effort to give back to our community, we are working closely with women’s cooperative in Africa by promoting trade to enhance the feeling of inclusion, fostering women’s partnerships, and creating business opportunities for them.

We are more than the color of our skin and we can achieve more“- Raissa Yame
