“After years of staring at people through a close lens, you get a really tight look at the skin and the face,” he said.
Well, taking that into consideration then, it's no surprise that both ranges, Beauty Equation (a higher-end line for women in their mid-20s and up) and BE Cosmetics (its drugstore equivalent for teens and twenty-somethings) both focus heavily on skincare and are designed to make ladies look "camera ready." (Facebook selfies!)
Beauty Equation products will include a full-stacked lineup of cleansers, tonic mists, moisturizers, serums, eye shadows, lip glosses, and face kits with prices starting at $25. While its little sister will shelve fragrance-free skincare products (priced from $8 for face wash to $18 for night cream) along with hypoallergenic lip, eye, face, and highlighter palettes.
Packaging for both collections are said to feature Barker's original photography. You think that includes Crazy Lisa peeing in a diaper from Cycle 5 of ANTM? Yeah... Probably not. But imagine! Anywho, the real question worth asking here anyway, is which of Barker's reality model shows will rep the brands—ANTM or The Face? Hmm...
