12 Black Makeup Artists Who Are Changing the Game

Black History Month is here, and although I celebrate industry leaders of color every day through my work, there's something special about showing them even more recognition during our month. Fact: Celebrity makeup artists of color have been breaking boundaries in the industry since the beginning.

They've navigated an industry that has not always been built to celebrate people of color. Considering the torrential cultural climate of our world, their artistry has stood the test of time and made women of all ethnicities and skin tones feel absolutely beautiful—on the inside and out. And for that, they deserve to be celebrated.
