Happy New Year, Ravens! After months of uncertainty, 2020 finally came to an end and for some, right before the clock struck twelve, they made sure to capture another beautiful photo to end 2020. Others waited for the new year to bless us with their latest beauty take. Whatever the case, we can promise that every look was a fitting end to a year so confusing and a new one now full of hope.
Veteran Nigerian actress Dakore Egbuson Akande shared a stunning shot to usher in the new year. We need a word with her hair colorist or stylist but will you look at that skin work?! To answer her caption question, “what are we hopeful for?” We’re hoping for even more outstanding beauty looks to keep us celebrating the diversity of Black beauty!
Nigerian-American beauty influencer Jackie Aina served her beauty with a bright piercing smile. Jackie’s inviting stare is further intensified by the dark liner and very wispy lashes that frame her eyes. You already know ‘Auntie Jackie’ is the queen of skin work, so nothing new to see here.
We will always celebrate African hair and Afrocentric hairstyles like this fluffy, kinky Afro on LA-based model Choyce Brown. Choyce’s big, black Afro hair against her rich brown skin is such a glamorous beauty look. Don’t you just love it when black women exist boldly?
More braids this year? Amen! We loved how Nigerian muse Jesuféranmi styled her fringe braids. She looked every bit like an Egyptian goddess and queen mixed in one. You’ll have to agree that the best part of this beauty look is the richness of the colors and designs of the beads all around her hair. We’re in awe! For a very honorable mention, we all need to ask voiceover artist, Pamela Mtanga who her braider is! Her Rihanna-inspired locs are so neat and attractive and we want the plug on this pique beauty! There’s so much more makeup looks and hairstyles to see!
Check out last week’s best beauty looks…
