If you needed any indication that warmer days are on the horizon, just look at your calendar; Mother’s Day is less than one month away. Whether she be your mom, mentor or best friend, it’s important to celebrate each other; especially in the weeks leading up to this special day.

This year, we’re not waiting until May 8 to live it up; the party starts now!

ESSENCE BeautyBox ‘s “Generation Gorgeous” is a tribute to the women who taught us to love our shade of beautiful. Entertainment journalist Alicia Quarles, blogger Jessica Franklin and DJ Kitty Cash are just a few of the fab ladies we’ve enlisted to help us celebrate the unique beauty of black women. For the next few weeks, they’ll be sharing their timeless beauty secrets and we want you to do the same.

Join the movement below and be sure to order a gift subscription for the special lady in your life—it comes with a free bonus box for you, too!
