Beauty blogging is an art – and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! These amazing women open the world of makeup artistry to all of us at home, and are also fierce business women. While it can seem that our Caucasian ladies dominate the space, this can be tough for us ethnic girls since what works on their skin is definitely not for us. Over the last decade though, increasingly ethnic women have been rising stars capturing a world-wide audience. Here are my top 5 brown babes killing it in the business!
