In the beauty world, there is no shortage of bad*ss women who are taking over with their stunning makeup looks, incredible products, and internet-shattering launches. Among them are LGBTQ+ allies, environmental activists, and inclusivity advocates, and we love every second of it. We turn to them learn about all the different people-groups in the beauty industry and through them we are exposed to many different viewpoints we may have never otherwise been made aware of. These bad*ss beauties are some of the most influential in the industry today.

Many children grow up dreaming of being astronauts, artists, or superheroes. Cashemere Nicole, however, has always had the mind of an entrepreneur and launched Beauty Bakerie in 2011 as a single mom. She is now an up-and-coming female CEO and part of a new wave of bad*ss female entrepreneurs in beauty. For Nicole, Beauty Bakerie is all about catering to the needs of a diverse beauty community, creating a brand that helps makeup-wearers feel good about adding a pop of color to their everyday routine, and making products that don't have harmful, cancer-causing ingredients.

Most makeup-wearers LOVE a good glitter moment. Glitter roots, glitter highlight, and even glitter beards have all had their time in the spotlight and were all super fun. However, glitter isn't super fun for the environment. Glitter is really just microplastic that gets washed off your face at the end of the day ends up in the ocean, spurring further ocean pollution. Combatting this crisis is Kath Senior and her company EcoStardust. EcoStardust, founded in 2017, is built around sustainability. Senior has worked hard to develop a glitter that is derived from plant cellulose from non-GMO, sustainably farmed eucalyptus trees. Her passions for protecting the earth and removing microplastics from the world have led to a more environmentally-conscious beauty community while keeping it super fun and glitzy.

Sheet masks, faux freckles, and space buns, oh my! In recent years, K-Beauty has taken over the beauty world thanks to one woman in particular — Charlotte Cho. Cho, along with her husband, launched her website Soko Glam in 2012 and has always had a passion for helping people discover Korean skincare, beauty trends, and cosmetics. Soko Glam helps users do just that. The website is full of K-Beauty products and routines that Cho herself has tested and curated for people interested in the trends. Her goal is to curate high-quality products and help inspire others to think "skin first" with good skin care habits in order to help others find beauty without the need to cover their natural faces. Through her work and learnings at Soko Glam, Cho released her own line of skincare, called Then I Met You, in 2018.

Nikki De Jager, aka nikkitutorials, recently came out as a transgender woman following an unknown source blackmailing and threatening to out her in the months leading up to 2020. De Jager, having been an internet celebrity since the launch of her YouTube channel in 2008 said she wanted to start the new year by coming out and said in her video titled, "I'm Coming Out," "today, I'm taking back my own power." While she did not disclose specifics about the situation involving her blackmailer, de Jager used her platform to defend not only herself, but the Trans Community around the world by standing up to her aggressor. After she posted her video, many friends and large makeup brands and companies rallied behind de Jager and the trans community by showing their support on social media.

A Shark-Tank reject turned Target exclusive, The Lip Bar is a makeup company whose CEO, Melissa Butler, is hoping to help change the linear narrative of beauty. Butler found herself frustrated with not only the many chemicals she found in her beauty products, but also the lack of inclusivity in beauty brands. Thus, she began creating lipsticks in her kitchen and The Lip Bar was born. Butler worked hard to pave her way to a substantial business and, eventually, found herself on Shark Tank in 2015 seeking investment in her company. When all of the sharks turned her away, Butler persisted and her line of gender- and color-inclusive products can now be found online and on Target shelves around the world.

HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾

I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
