8 Inspirational Black Beauty Influencers You Should Know ...

I don’t know about you, but I have always found the world of online beauty a space that has been way too white for way too long. All of the gurus that seem to be the most followed and most famous are all of similar look and race, and I think that it is about time we changed that! There are so many amazing women of colour out there doing their thing, that I think they need to be just as well known and regarded as the likes of Zoella etc. Here are eight inspirational black beauty influencers you should know about!
