Happy Pride Month 🌈💕
Just a reminder that the celebration we know today would not be possible without the courage of the prolific Marsha P. Johnson (a Black Trans Woman and liberation activist) and the Black Queer community who were the first to protest for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community during the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Please join us in using your voice and platform to stand up for the Black LGBTQ+ community as we celebrate pride month and continue to support Black Lives Matter. Liberation is intersectional.

Black beauty brands to support ✨✨
I want to use my platform on here and say I fully support these black beauty businesses. I truly support the black lives movement and want them all to have equality. Even if only one person learns something then that would be wonderful. I’d love for you all to be aware of what’s going on in the world. Something simple like the color of your skin does not mean you are better than others or worse than others. People have to wake up and see that equality is the right way. Please read up and educate yourself, find articles and read others peoples post on how they have been affected by this. If you’re reading and think to yourself “hmm but I can’t relate to this” then put yourself in their shoes, you would never like it of someone treated you a certain way just because the color of your skin is different or if they find out you are black. Every single person deserves equality and respect. And since it’s also pride month please respect other people on their sexuality. They are their own person and if you have a problem with their lifestyle then you have to educate yourself and not be part of the problem. Black lives matter is saying that they deserve respect as well it is NOT saying other lives don’t matter as well. I’ve seen examples of how to explain this; someone’s house is on fire and you see it happening, you start helping and you see someone walking by and you tell them to call the fire department when they say “well what about my house? It’s important too” yes it is important but right now we need to help the person with the burning house.
BLACK LIVES BEFORE SKINCARE CONTENT 🖤🤎💛🤍
It is redundant for me explain what’s been going on in the United States. With the chaos depicted on media, it is important to remember one thing: black lives have been unjustly taken by police violence for a very long time. There is understandable anger. Peaceful protests aren’t always the answer. Unnecessary destruction on both sides, however, has been committed. POC-owned small businesses that have already been struggling don’t deserve to be the subjects of further destruction. They are last to get bailed out by government. Don’t be fooled by media. Most protestors are still non-violent. White supremists have initiated some of the looting to make people of color look bad. Black people get filmed because it’s a better story. Police have also initiated preemptive violence on peaceful protestors. Stay safe out there. Be conscious. And live intentionally. Remember that racism starts small- from the seemingly “harmless” lack of inclusive foundation shades to the slaying of lives based on skin color. Please don’t tell me that this post is not relevant here. The beauty industry is governed by racist politics. Only recently have there been changes. Beauty trends inherently seek to exclude based on our complexion. High-end brands act as gatekeepers to good skin. The skincare and beauty industry is complicit in anti-blackness and so are we, as non-Black contributors to the beauty space. We all can do better. 🖤🤎💛🤍
Listening & Learning
If you were to ask me 10 years ago what the year 2020 would look like, my answer would probably paint the life we all looked forward to: a world of advancement, a world of peace, a world hope, and a world of change. Before you could even blink an eye, here we are, in the year 2020 and that vision of hope is still a far cry from reality. We still live in a world where we have to fight for basic human rights because hate is based on the color of one’s skin. We live in a world where our justice system fails us time and time again. We live in a world where it is common to tear each other down simply based on appearance. I am disgusted with the world we live in today. Disgusted that after all these years, we are STILL fighting for basic human rights. To the black community and to everyone else that feels oppressed in this cruel world, I hope you find the justice you are searching for. I hope and pray that in light of recent events, people with a voice use it for humanity, and you are brought the justice you deserve. As for me, I am listening, learning, helping, and joining. • • • • With that being said I think it is important, especially now, to lift up the voices of the black community. I’ve listed some of my favorite influencers and black-owned companies for you to show support to and ask that you share your favorites with me as well! • Patricia Bright ( IG: thepatriciabright) • Tomi Obebe ( IG: goodtomicha) • Mattie James ( IG: themattiejames) • lustvcosmetics.com • eparaskincare.com • klur.co Xoxo Em💋

Spotlight @loverosa 🏷 My Go To Hairstyle
Creator: @thebeautyguide In order to manage my hair while it was growing out during my months of work from home, I incorporated extensions in some of my hairstyles. I know you might be wondering why I was wearing extensions, the answer is I had a lot of work meetings that took place over zoom and I needed to look halfway presentable. My go to hairstyle was a half up/ half down look as I didn’t have to use so many pieces in my hair I just needed to add some length as my hair had not yet reached my shoulders. I used some extensions I had from irresistible me (do not recommend at all!) but I cut them from 22 inches to about shoulder length in order to get the style I wanted. I basically only used the three largest wefts that came in my bundle back in order to give my hair that added length as my hair is pretty thick and full naturally. Again I don’t recommend the irresistible me hair extensions, there are actually much better brands out there like Bellami that are worth the money.
