The women of Essence Festival 2019 came to slay, and slay they did!

Every shade, every color, and every hue graced the Ernest Morial Convention Center for the 25th Anniversary of the festival.

Bright colors and bold transitions are the current summer trend, and they were present in full force. But it didn’t stop there. Every eyelid and cheekbone radiated Black girl magic and glowing confidence.

The festival style trend this year was color-coordinated makeup with an outfit to match. Bold red lips were paired with stripes and cheetah printed outfits. Neon pinks and greens were sisters to crisp whites. The Essence Festival is known to bring a vast array of Black beauty to New Orleans, and this year it didn’t disappoint.
