UP’s latest release of the fashion magazine was women empowerment and what better way to embrace the fall issue than to get to know some black women influencers you should be watching on YouTube.
- Jackie Aina
Jackie Aina has come so far as her background entails working in the U.S. Army! She is the definition of women empowerment as she fought for the country while mastering makeup. Two very hard things to do and now she is at 2.7 million Youtube subscribers and on her way to 3 million!
From Jackie’s theme song, “Jackie, Jackie, Jackie, Jackie…” I digress to her shady yet comical personality, Jackie Aina is a great role model for women of color and just about everyone! Jackie is most known for her brutal honesty of makeup products and calling out her haters in her makeup tutorials, did I mention she was hilarious? She also collaborated with Too Faced Cosmetics for her new Born This Way Foundation.
Shayla is another beauty guru who takes the opportunity to let her viewers into her daily life. She has been known for giving weekly updates on her new Keto diet while showing viewers her results and claiming it is the best thing that has happened to her! By doing this, she has used her beauty platform to reach another audience on Youtube which is the fitness gurus. Her signature saying during her makeup videos are “Okurrrr..” and Shayla also has had the opportunity to collab with Colourpop.
ItsMyRayeRaye got her to start on Youtube by producing beauty hacks such as “DIY: How to turn your old tights into a cute top,” which has gained over 4 million views. She is known her for signature bold lip color, and in the past, collaborated with BH cosmetics. She recently announced her pregnancy to Youtube and is doing spectacular things!
All of these females are great inspirations for our generation and scream women empowerment.
