As part of the initiative, Clinique collaborated with a diverse group of leading global makeup artists and creators, including Tess Daly, Sheika Daley and Emira D'Spain, to design the exclusive NFT "Metaverse More Like Us" campaign that challenges unrealistic beauty standards and champions individuality.
In the metaverse, only 20% of users and creators are women, less than 16% of all NFT artists are female and NFTs with avatars of color and disability are valued lower than white avatars. The "Metaverse More Like Us" campaign celebrates all beauty and highlights communities currently under-represented in the digital world.
"From the beginning, Clinique has always been committed to developing products that deliver exceptional results and address all skin concerns, whilst delivering better experiences for our consumers along the journey," says Carolyn Dawkins,
"Over the past 20 years, Daz 3D has consistently created inclusive representation in the digital environment and is thrilled to continue this tradition with Clinique," says Jessica Rizzuto, senior vice president, e-commerce, Daz 3D. "Our groundbreaking NFT collections, like Non-Fungible People and our partnership with Clinique, are breaking barriers and challenging the status quo. Through this campaign and the stunningNFT
makeup looks, we are proud to bring this to life in the metaverse."
The campaign's inclusive group of makeup artists and creators (Daly, Daley and D’Spain) each curated two looks to round out the campaign's six looks. All were created with diverse NFPs in mind, allowing them to fit all skin tones, face shapes and hairstyles.
Each of the three NFT makeup drops will be offered to 1,968 randomly selected avatar NFP collection holders. The three drops will kick off this summer, with the first 1,968 avatars receiving their NFTs in July, the second drop in August and the third drop occurring in September.
