Beauty Companies Inspired By Coming 2 America Sequel

The Coming 2 America sequel launches on Amazon Prime and has inspired cosmetic companies to recreate the fabulous looks from the new movie

Coming 2 America will be streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime from today 5th March 2021.
Much like the original film Coming To America which also starred Eddie Murphy, the sequel is filled with beautiful African influenced outfits, make-up and hairstyles. To celebrate the return of Prince Akeem of Zamunda and his court on our screens, UOMA Beauty and Sleek Makeup have drawn inspiration from some of the fabulous looks from the new movie.

UOMA Beauty launches exclusive Black Magic Coming 2 America Range

 UOMA Beauty (UOMA – pronounced OMA which means beautiful) has released an exciting, new, limited-edition makeup collection in collaboration with Coming 2 America, premiering globally on Amazon Prime Video on March 5th. This exclusive edit, Black Magic Coming 2 America Collection, was inspired by the fictional lush and royal country of Zamunda, and showcases African beauty in its most authentic form.

The collection, which has a particular focus on the eyes, draws from African royalty from all over the continent. From the Fulani tribe in Nigeria, Niger and Chad to the Ndebele all the way to the ultra-modern and colourful Aso Ebi/Aso Oke culture. 

The Black Skinned Beauty’ portraits campaign

But before we talk about the makeup, take a look at the collection’s campaign, which was produced by world renowned creatives including Sir John, Zerina Akers and Trevor Stuurman, and features some of the costumes taken from the film. It takes the virtues of nine of the greatest queens of Africa  – Amina, Yaa Asantewaa, Kandake Amanirenas, Nefertiti, Makeda, Nzinga Mbande, Nandi, Moremi, and Ranavalona – and distills them into five odes  represented as ‘The Black Skinned Beauty’ portraits –  – Courage, Pride, Heritage, Opulence, and Resilience.

 Now for the makeup: In addition to the opulent and regal royal blues and golds seen in the cosmetics collection, the bold and vibrant range pays homage to the film with playful and cheerful neon colours, and uses joyful phrases and classic moments from the movie throughout the products and shade names, such as Peaches & Akeem, Queen to Be, and Zamundan Sun.
