Women of Color Makeup Ideas & a List of Black Owned Makeup Companies!


Hi everybody…

This past week has been sooooooo stressful; I took a job that I knew I had no business taking. On the job posting it had a nice pay rate, but when I got hired the pay rate decreased immensely. What makes matters worse was the job was not going to pay us until the end of November, so I literally packed my snacks and notebook up and left.

On top of the work situation, I’ve been stressing about moving out my parents’ house… I’m 22 and ready for the world; and they think I should stay at home for like 37 more years, so yeah… life has been extremely unlit.

But hey, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes… and I refuse to be in my feelings today; so let’s touch on a lighter topic… Makeup! My best friend Crystal helped me orchestrate this post, so shout out to her. (Her Instagram is noted at the bottom)

Everyone wants a beat face nowadays, unless you are Alicia Keys and want to let everyone you don’t wear makeup every chance you get, so I decided to do a piece to highlight some amazing YouTube Makeup Gurus that everyone should check out.

&& To my male readers, don’t fret… This article is for you too, because if you know of anybody who is having some issues with makeup; this is an amazing passive aggressive way to address it 🙂

This could come off as problematic, but I decided to organize my videos by skin tones so it’ll be easier to figure which YouTube series works for you the most.

(So to my fake deep followers, no I’m not trying to create more of a divide in the Black community, I’m just trying to help everyone find a makeup artist who’s skin matches with them. It helps me out because, I’m able to see what colors work on women like me…)
