9 Black Beauty Vloggers You Should Be Following On YouTube

It’s no secret that the beauty industry has a pretty dismal diversity record, but thanks to social media, there are a ton of black beauty vloggers out there who are changing the game.

Not only are they bringing attention to the industry’s lack of representation ― especially when it comes to makeup shades ― they’re also providing useful makeup tips and tricks for individuals of color, and doing so in a relatable, engaging way.

The world of beauty vloggers is vast, but these individuals are definitely making their mark. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite black beauty gurus on YouTube. If you’re not already following these women and men, we’d say it’s time to start.

1 Nyma Tang

Aside from the typical beauty tutorials and demos, we love Nyma Tang’s video series called “The Darkest Shade,” in which she tests the darkest shades of makeup to see whether they’ll work on her skin tone. As Allure once noted, “It’s literally the importance of inclusivity for shade ranges in action.”

2 Kaiser Coby

Kaiser Coby is a 19-year-old who considers herself “just a black young Brit who loves makeup.” And it shows. The YouTuber, who posts tutorials for her stunning makeup looks, joined the video sharing website in the summer of 2016 and already has over 250,000 subscribers.

4 Damilola Adejonwo

Damilola Adejonwo videos don’t have the highest production quality or even millions of views, but the beauty vlogger isn’t afraid to get candid about his life experiences, which makes his videos endearing. And, of course, he’s got some serious makeup skills.

5 Jackie Aina

f you didn’t see Jackie Aina’s “Makeup Trends We’re Ditching in 2015“ (she also made a 2018 version) when it went viral a couple of years back, you’re missing out. Those videos aside, though, Aina has so much more to offer — she’s hilarious, real and provides helpful makeup tips through her demos …

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance. And, like the graceful butterfly, the awakened black woman exemplifies the dazzling beauty of that cultural evolution.
