When it comes to black beauty, phenomenal, gorgeous and magnificent are some of the top words that define the beauty of women of African origin. Among the most magnificent of black women are the stars we’ve come to love, who are not only pros in their different artistic fields, but who also lead at setting the contemporary standards of beauty––raising the bar from time to time. In other words, these bombshells know exactly what to do when it comes to serving the hottest beauty lewks.
From sensational hairstyles to dazzling face beats, black celebs never disappoint. Last week, the best beauty looks proved this, as they showcased melanin in its incomparable splendor.
Shaking things up on the hairstyle scene, American actress and activist Yara Shahidi showed up and showed out with two ponytails. The fun hairdo was as unconventional as it was striking, and the Grownish star personified the hairstyle it to a tee. The braided detail placed at the center of the ponytails brought all the drama to the youthful aesthetic of this hairdo and we cannot get enough!
Former Big Brother Naija housemate and content creator Tolani Baj came through with an afro that relayed the message of power. The reality star’s hairdo spoke of an appreciation for black heritage, and the liberty that lies in embracing one’s natural hair texture.
As Esteé Lauder once said, “Glow is the essence of beauty.” Embodying this unapologetically, Kelly Rowland’s electric blue eye makeup and glossy lip combo was a gleaming hit! Her luminous skin dazzled in the picture-perfect moment, which she shared to announce the release of her new EP titled K. The songbird is an absolute stunner and this reflective shot confirmed this.
It goes without saying that nude and neutral tones have a divine way of flattering dark skin. For this reason, it’s no surprise that music powerhouse Brandy took the “no makeup” makeup look to a whole new level with a soft natural glam. The chocolate semblance of her skin was remarkable, and her facial features were subtly accentuated in the right places. It’s safe to say that the overall look was what ethereal makeup dreams are made of.
We’ve got you covered with even more looks to revere.
