Moon Cosmetics

Having self-confidence comes from feeling good within and loving the skin you’re in. But having acne-prone skin, oily skin, dry skin, or even eczema can be a battle. It can affect how a person feels about themselves and their appearance. Growing up I struggled with acne, more so when I was a teenager. Even today I am still not 100% confident with the little acne or blemishes on my face, especially having such a light complexion. However, I came across this Moon Cosmetics skincare line a few months ago, before the pandemic, and was blown away by the results I saw via Instagram. The results featured both women and men, of different ethnicities and complexions showing off their new layer of skin, with confidence. But right when the pandemic happened, their manufacturing was put on hold. Then I forgot all about the cosmetics line.

Ironically I had been looking for a new skin regime and product to try out that is black-owned. And here we are five months into the pandemic and I found the Moon Cosmetics line again! I came across the product via Twitter this time! I had seen so many of my followers who are predominantly African American raving about the product being available again. The restock of Rose Galore was what all the tweets were about and within minutes the entire page had crashed and then sold out, again! No, I did not get lucky and purchase my skincare products in time, but I am now subscribed to know when the next restock will be. The newly featured product, Rose Galore, is amazing for all skin types, including dry, oily, acne-prone, eczema, sensitive skin, and more. 

Moon Cosmetics was created by young black entrepreneur Mariee. She has several different products to choose from, besides the new Rose Galore, to complete a skin regime. You can even add her products to your usual skin regime and still see great results according to the Moon Cosmetic webpage and customer reviews on Instagram and YouTube. Below is listed what is included in the Rose Galore beauty product.

    In addition to aesthetics, you might not consider whether you have trouble distinguishing shampoo from conditioner if you have limited vision or if you have problems opening eyeliner caps when you have limited mobility.

    With so many new fashion and beauty trends on the rise, it can be difficult to decide where to start first.

For those out there that are struggling to decide where to begin, I have compiled three super easy beauty trends that are stylish, trending, and can be done at home.

    Let’s Unpack the Mielle Hair Oil TikTok Controversy

    A new trend has taken over tiktok once again but this time, it’s reigniting a discussion of the way white creators all too often, appropriate beauty practices from black and brown communities.

    In a video posted on December 28, 22-year-old influencer Alix Earle listed her top Amazon purchases of 2022. One of her favorite beauty, wellness, and tech finds is Mielle Organics’ Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil, which is often used by those with curly or textured hair.

    Best Celebrity Beauty and Makeup Brands

    To me, beauty has always been associated with celebrities. With this being said, it is also obvious that many celebrities have endorsed beauty and makeup brands throughout time. This has led to the creation of celebrity beauty brands. From endorsing beauty and makeup lines to launching their own product lines, celebs have come a long way. It all started with the launching of fragrances, but as time has gone on, many celebs have ventured into the makeup industry as well.

    Skincare Beauty Tips for Back to College

    Why I Love the Natural Beauty Trend

    Within the last few years, fashion and beauty have grown more daring and bold. Color, creativity, and an overall theme of self-expression have dominated fashion and beauty trends. Most recently, we have seen this demonstrated in the realm of cosmetics through trends like facial gems and embellishments, bold eyeliner artistry, and statement colors like green eyeshadows and metallic accents. But just as every fashion trend grows in popularity, a counter-trend begins to emerge; a counter-trend being a trend that blossoms as a rejection of the mainstream. So naturally, the reactionary trend towards the bold makeup looks that we’ve been seeing would take the form of more toned-down natural looks. The natural beauty trend revolves around the concept of enhancing what’s already there with minimal makeup and maximum skin care. Because of this trend’s emphasis on highlighting people’s natural beauty and improving their skin care, I fully support this trend and its moment.
