“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” but these top seven beauty influencers are very good at expressing it. These beauty influencers have made our list because of their originality and achievements.

Temitope Adesina

According to her, she started blogging some years ago when people would constantly ask her about my hair routine. “I am Nigerian and many Nigerians don’t think they have good hair” She said. She wanted to show that you can indeed be 100% African and have beautiful hair. What sets her apart from other beauty influencers is that she adds her own style with her looks. She is definitely a whole package, outfit popping, makeup on point and hair just big and bold.

Jackie Aina

You would have to search very hard to find a beauty lover who hasn’t heard about Aunty Jackie. Jackie has been catapulted into superstar status with many women, particularly women of colour, following her every move. What makes Jackie so special is she is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Jackie has been very vocal about the lack of diversity in the beauty industry and is not afraid to call out brands. As a result, she was given the chance to put her money where her mouth is and created an extended range of shades for beauty giant Too Faced’s ‘Born This Way’ range.
