In the midst of the countless beauty influencers and vloggers on social media today, there’s a small subset of Black male influencers who slay their beats with no apologies. And this fall they’re serving up seasonal realness with gorgeous makeup that nods to the warm and vibrant colors we love to wear right now.
Whether it’s how to contour like a professional, or how to layer colors just right, they always have something to show us. And they’re doing it just as beautifully as their female counterparts.
Kaliff aka Makeup Messiah is feeling the blues in this look that lets the vivid color pop with just a touch of pink and full nude lips. He even broke down all the products he used to achieve this flawless beat.
Kenneth D. Senegal is serving up vamp beauty with this beautiful gray lip and subtle metallic eye makeup. His cheekbones also have just the right amount of highlight and shimmer, giving them Naomi-like pop and grandeur.
The self-proclaimed king of highlight Markevious Harris is using his Halloween demon glam to show us a spin on sexy vamp. The red skin takes a serious back seat to his impeccable dramatic smoky eyes and perfectly painted black lips. And his highlight is devilishly heavenly.
Michigan-based makeup artist Christopher Ingram makes purple reign. He shows us how to layer our eyeshadow creatively, and how to do faux freckles the right way. He also bakes and contours like a true veteran.
Kameron Lester plays with colors in this look he served after two weeks off from giving us the goods. The bright and vivid colors are complemented by the metallic shadow and perfectly executed winged liner. With the blond curls, it’s fall perfection.
NeonMUA shows us how to incorporate orange into our eye makeup without looking like a Halloween costume or a pumpkin. The look might be dramatic for a random Thursday, but if you’ve got the face for it like he does, we say go for it.
While makeup artist Dee Seven might be focusing on his fearless coral lipstick in this look, it’s the dramatic and dynamic mod-style lashes that truly stand out. Not everyone can pull this off but he is making it work. The bright lips and perfect skin don’t hurt the look either.
