fall
Dust off your fluffy sweaters, and seasonal fall candles, and unbox your favorite pumpkin-spiced recipes because the first signs of autumn's anticipated trends have finally arrived – that means smokey eye/power lip combos, toasted color palettes, and never-ending shelves of Halloween home décor. After a summer of scorching heat waves...
Girl, before we even get to this Hailey Bieber dragging on TikTok, let me tell ya'll something about my 90's experience! I am from the 'left side of an island' as our girl RiRi would say, so traditional lip gloss from high-end stores was not a thing for me or...
nude
Fall is almost here, which means we’re switching the freezing-cold froyos for steaming lattes, lightweight skincare staples for heavier options, and sparkly nail shades for a sultry nude hue (this isn’t a standing summer-fall rule, though). But while we love rocking a sexy brown sugar or milky ivory nail look,...
pH-reacting makeup lip balm
Have you ever tried pH-reacting makeup? If not, it's exactly what it sounds like: makeup that contains ingredients that react to pH levels of your skin by changing color. In other words, the color and shade of the makeup—be it lip balm, blush, or even foundation—changes as soon as it...
Body highlighter is already a shimmering, shining dream for those of us who love a sparkly finish to our skincare and makeup, but Keys Soulcare turned it up a notch by infusing this glittery goodness with some truly healing, uplifting ingredients.  That's right—this beauty-meets-wellness brand is aiming to make us...
Even though most of us have body hair, it seems to be a touchy subject, generally. In my family, for instance, shaving our legs was a right of passage and we couldn't wait to get rid of it all as soon as puberty hit. For others, things may have been...
If we were to break down Kelly Rowland’s impressive qualities, we would need more than a few pages in a magazine because this woman is legendary. From her unmatched work ethic to her powerhouse voice that soars from R&B ballads to club-bumping music and record-breaking artistry that isn’t always synonymous...
black-owned
The number of Black-owned lifestyle brands continues to triple each year. However, the reality is that these incredibly inclusive products aren’t always available in various retailer and beauty supply stores. we’re glad that there’s progress in inclusivity, pharmacies and online markets have historically discounted the needs of WOC and failed to...
Rapper-singer Doja Cat has been an internet sensation since she became famous with the iconic ‘Mooo!’ music video. So, as a legendary star and icon, it makes sense that Vogue tapped her to do a Beauty Secrets video. If you’ve been wondering how she’s been able to maintain that ‘Juicy Juicy’...
Zoë Kravitz
Anybody with a face knows how incredibly challenging it can be to keep it ever-so radiant, blemish-free, and healthy-looking. And although a celebrity-approved skincare routine might be intimidating (and hella bank-breaking) for us mere mortals, Zoë Kravitz keeps hers refreshingly simple and affordable. E! News spoke to Zoë’s makeup artist, Nina...
Eyelash growth serums always sound a bit gimmicky because the idea of growing out your lashes isn't something we think is entirely possible or even realistic for some of us.  I mean, we can curl them, add extensions, put on mascara, and do whatever else we can to accentuate what...
No makeup freckles on dark skinned woman
The concept behind the "no makeup" makeup look is pretty simple: wear makeup as if you don't have any on. The whole idea here is to elevate what you have instead of changing or hiding it under thick layers of makeup.  You could do a quick BB cream, a light...
If there’s one product, no beauty enthusiast can be caught dead without it’s a bold, time-honored red lipstick. It’s not only the beauty equivalent to the iconic little black dress (LBD), but it’s both edgy and sexy –yet still refined – making it the perfect must-have product in anyone’s beauty...
Most people think that being able to keep your hygiene together is something that comes naturally with adulthood. But the reality is, some of us need more help than others. And that's absolutely no shade! Knowing what you need to improve is the first step to fixing it. Between keeping...
Vegan skincare for black women
Vegan skincare is incredibly popular these days, and that shouldn't be a surprise! A great deal of it is healthy for your skin, better for the environment, and not to mention that it's not tested on animals, so that's a win-win for our furry friends, too!  Because it's so popular,...
