Each week, the Reflect Beauty influencers and editors shared trending and classic looks (like the warm-glam makeup look by @ulovemegz, and the “bodylicious” blow-out on @itslesliealvarado) among others. We also tackled our biggest beauty-related challenges, discussing the most effective solutions for us and the winning products that get the job done.  The best part—our judges chose and shared the products that they actually use and love!

Own the Conversation, Drive the Change

The first ever Reflect Beauty Awards provided a platform for leading multicultural voices to own the conversation on beauty inclusion, and drive change. With that, we want to give a special thanks to our powerful collective– top influencers Jessica Pettway, Megz, Sandy Lin, Ada Rojas, Sheba Snow, and Leslie Alvarado; the editors and the Mirror Digital team, partners like Clinique Even Better MakeUp, CliniqueID, and Uoma; and leading publishing partners like xoNecole, Quien, Hype Hair, Vida Latina, and 50 Shades of Snail — for reminding the world that every woman deserves an equal opportunity not only to embrace and find confidence in the hair and skin she’s in, but to see herself reflected in popular media.

We are your mirror in the beauty, fashion, health, and wellness arenas, and strive to celebrate, uplift, and educate women of color, around the world. 

 Together, we are making this radical but necessary shift from a collective beauty standard, to an inclusive conversation where every woman is encouraged to define her own beauty.  And it starts right here, right now… it starts with YOU. So we’re shouting you out, too! Thanks for joining the movement!

What Now?

Follow @_reflectbeauty_ on IG and FB, and head over to to keep the conversation going, year-round! Reflect Beauty is your platform, a consumer-led community, and safe-space where you can share your experiences, frustrations, and triumphs of being your naturally gorgeous self.  We are your mirror in the beauty, fashion, health, and wellness arenas, and strive to celebrate, uplift, and educate women of color, around the world.  Let us help you be a reflection of your best self.
