Black makeup is so important to many of us, when often our appearance and presentation are not only tied to how we feel, but also to our survival and navigation of an antiblack world.

It’s amazing to see how makeup for Black folks has become more readily available with the rise of social media, when often so many of us are subjected to not finding accesible makeup artists/makeup products due to colorism, fatphobia and capitalism.

Here are some of my favorite black makeup artists to follow that also share their magic and labor in providing information on products and methods for beauty!

My clients are usually asking for something natural (but still glamorous), so I thought it would be fun to take on the #MFMGChallenge from @MakeupForMelaninGirls and do something different by recreating this face chart!
