It's no secret that the beauty world is dominated by white women. While we're splurging at Sephora, it's also very important that we also support our Black-Owned Beauty companies as well! Here are some Black Girl bosses that have brands that we love! There are direct links to every product talked about, just click the picture! :)

Honey Kissed Cosmetics is an upcoming brand. If you're on twitter, I'm 99% sure you've seen her lipglosses breaking makeup twitter!

Fashion Fair is a high-end makeup brand that is Black-Owned and caters specifically to colored girls! Their most popular product amongst their consumers are their "Fast Finish Foundation Sticks". In this case, it's easy to guess your shade because it was made by a colored woman, for colored women. Their products are currently sold on their online website and at Macy's (online and in most stores). Click here to shop Fashion Fair!
This is only part 1, I'm on the hunt for more beauty brands for my colored girls! Until then, enjoy!
"Be the girl who turned her cant's into cans and her dreams into plans"
I may not have a super huge platform but this is how I feel. Every night I'm terrified that something might happen to my loved ones. It's so frequent now, nationwide. When I heard about Alton's murder, I said damn another one. That's sickening & I had to check myself like is it really getting to that point where that was the first thought in my head. I don't know what to do. I don't have the answers but someone in this generation does. I honestly believe that. My generation, although were hard headed & sometimes don't realize our worth, we are so powerful. We're not gonna be like the rest. We HAVE to turn this shit tf up. Excuse my language but it's time. KKK just lynched a man in Georgia & it was ruled a suicide. It's getting real. I hope y'all prepared & ready to ride. What's happening now determines our futures, our lives, our children's & grandkids lives. We gotta fight like how our parents & grand parents did. This is not saying that I'm against white people. Some of the people who had the biggest influence in my life were white but at the end of the day, I am a young black woman. I date a black man. I have two black brothers. A black father. A black mother. Two black nieces & one black nephew. With that being said, I love you all. Stay safe, change is coming. I hope y'all ready.
R.I.P to all victims of police brutality including my cousin Russell who was murder by the NYPD. My condolences to the families as well
