Did you know seven-time Grand Slam winner and four-time Olympic gold medalist, Venus Williams, is also a beauty aficionado? Neither. But speaking to Allure she said she's the go-to woman for beauty advice amongst her family and friends, "People always come to me with their skin issues. I love it, though."
Taking her love for skincare and passion for protecting said skin, Williams has partnered with Credo Beauty for her very first beauty line: EleVen by Venus x Credo.
"Credo is the leader in clean beauty. It really was just the perfect partner for EleVen to launch a clean mineral sunscreen," said Williams. "I was already using so many of the brands that were on their website and in their stores. I came in as a fan [before] we started to partner together."
The collection, an extension of the EleVen by Venus Williams brand, which includes her athletic-wear, features mineral-based sun protection for all skin tones.
The range is starting with two key products: On-The-Defense Sunscreen SPF 30, a traditional semi-matte mineral sunscreen, and the Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 30, a daily hydrating serum with sun protection that you can wear under or over your makeup.
"No matter what skin tone you are, you want your skin to look like your skin, and you don't want any layers on top," said Williams. "It leaves no white cast and, of course, it's universal for every skin tone and complexion."
As for extending the line in the future, Williams hinted this may not be the end of her collaboration with Credo.
"I love makeup, so don't be surprised if that's next on the list," she said.
