Best believe there’s no mediocre outcome once a black woman makes the decision to live her best life. Last week, black stars across the world pulled out all the stops and put the boujee on black beauty glam. The best beauty looks were all glowed up in so excellent a manner that we were left scurrying off to grab our makeup boxes.
Braids are that hairstyle that suits an array of skin tones and last week, it showed up and bounced out in its usual timeless flair. While model Ebonee Davis made a statement in a super dramatic updo, serving up an edgy and eccentric switch to the braids game, singer Hailey Bailey played it cool in dreadlocks tied into a ponytail of twisted locs.
As we keep charging boldly towards normalizing self love and embracing our resplendent black beauty, Nigerian Big Brother reality star Venita Akpofure divulged a stylish view of her rich natural mane in a beguiling shot. On the opposite length of the hair game, influencer Whitney Madueke displayed a near-bald hairstyle which gave off the type of seriously confident vibe we love to see.
South African beauty influencer Mihlali Ndamase brought a summer-day glow in the perfect 90s inspired glam look. Contouring may not have been as popular then as it is now, but that didn’t stop Mihlali from incorporating it into this look. Still in the summer spirits, Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union-Wade kept her face beat simple with rosy cheeks for that summer sunburnt aura. The star kept her hair sleek with a headban-inspired braid, makeup simple and hoops retro enough to keep things spicy, or make that sexy.
Eye makeup is an art worth mastering and when done right, it acts as a perfect stroke of paint on a melanated canvas. London-based beauty influencer Lesley understood this as she traced a stunning teal blue cat eye that effortlessly lit up our TL. From barely there makeup looks to actress, singer and songwriter Ryan Destiny’s artsy makeup, there’s enough inspiration for every event on your calendar this week.
Here’s how the stars accentuated their black beauty glam last week…
