hey say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and our favorite Disney love story, Beauty and the Beast, resounds this truth. Nevertheless, last week, the beauty looks on Black stars and influencers were not to be second guessed as they topped off elegant fashion moments with an array of standout beauty details clear enough for all to behold and instantly admire. For us, it undoubtedly was love at first sight. 

The looks

Alicia Keys was a knockout as she posed as a double cover girl for Marie Claire US and UK in anticipation of her upcoming double album “KEYS“. Staying true to her natural beauty course, the multiple-award-winning-singer opted for barely there soft glam which highlighted her well-arched brows. In addition, she chose a ponytail with perfectly laid edges accompanied by her signature captivating smile. A beauty in her own right.

Some weeks might be routine while others spark up something and last week was the latter for Hollywood actress Kerry Washington who partnered with brand Aurate New York to launch “Be The Lead“—a classic jewelry collection. All donned up in sparkling jewelry, the star re-imagined Hollywood glamour in a short wavy hair and bold Lippie. Indeed, a great example of being “the lead.”

There’re looks we bumped into on Black stars and influencers and we were reminded of Greek goddesses of old who had their “a bit of all right” aura. That was the same energy exuding from South African Thulisile Phongolo who was wrapped up in an all over embellishment ensemble, glossy eye makeup and lip stick. Striking beauty is what comes to mind at first glance because, why not? 

Check out our favorite hair and makeup inspirations served by Black stars and influencers last week…
