The beauty bloggers network is no longer focused on focusing on black women’s looks.
Instead, it’s working on the next step in its evolution: making the black women it serves feel as much like the rest of us as possible.
“Black women are our future,” says Katie Rink, who co-founded Black Beauty Blogs in 2013.
“Black beauty has been in decline for a long time, but now we can actually start to address it.
We want to take the best of what black women are and make it more accessible to other people, whether that’s young black women, women of color, or even non-black women.
The beauty bloggers community has become a hub for women who want to share their knowledge, experiences, and tips with other black women.
But I think what we’re really trying to do is give them more of a voice and an opportunity to share what they do.”
Black women, especially Asian women, are now the majority of beauty bloggers.
Asian women represent a whopping 35% of the world’s population, but they are only 15% of beauty blogs.
In addition, Asian women tend to be much more likely to post more pictures of themselves, with the majority posting their looks on Instagram.
For Rink and Nash, their vision is to help bridge the gap between Asian beauty bloggers and the rest, by creating a community where Asian women can be themselves and not feel limited by other people’s assumptions.
They have launched the Black Beauties Network, a Facebook group that allows Asian women to share and discuss their beauty blog experiences.
It’s one of many ways they’re trying to change the way beauty blogs are perceived in the world.
One of the first posts on the BLNB Facebook page, titled “Who are we?”, was from a female blogger who said she had been trying to make her look less Asian for years.
Her post, titled “I was born in Thailand, but I’m Asian now,” was quickly shared over a thousand times and received more than 2,000 likes.
She explained that she had long wanted to be more like a woman from her own country and countrywoman, but was afraid that the world would judge her for her race.
In February, Rink and Nash posted a photo of themselves with a black face on Instagram with the caption: “I’m not sure if I want to be an American or a white woman, but this is the world we live in.”
The post garnered hundreds of likes and over 2,400 comments.
Black beauty bloggers are a diverse group of people, but it’s not uncommon for them to have different backgrounds, tends to be a little bit more affluent than white beauty bloggers who tend to work from home, and have less money and more of an understanding of what they want to do with their lives.
There are many different kinds of beauty blogger, but the diversity of the community has been on display since the rise of Instagram’s Black Beauty feature in 2017.
According to Instamatch, more than 90% of Instagram users post pictures of their faces, not just the ones they have on their phones.
And many beauty bloggers post photos that aren’t as obvious as the majority that are shared on Instagram: for instance, Instagram has a 60%+ percent chance of seeing a picture of a black woman on a daily basis, which is a lot of photos for a few minutes of Instagram photos.
This isn’t to say that there aren’t beauty bloggers who don’t follow the guidelines of the platform, and it’s certainly true that they aren’t the only ones.
But the beauty bloggers community is growing.
Earlier this month, Black Women for Social Justice, a group of women who are involved in Black beauty blogging in the US, launched the Black Black Beauty Bloggers Network.
It’s a platform where Black beauties can post their own beautiful posts, describe their experiences, and talk to each other about issues that are important to them.
Nashes and Rinks have been using the BBLN platform to talk about issues related to race in their own lives, and the Black beautys have started using the platform to share the stories of their own experiences.
As more Asian beauty blogs launch, they are also trying to reach more Asian beautyles and celebrate Asian culture, and also to give Asian women more space to express themselves.
Rin Wang is a 24-year-old beautician from Hong Kong who has been blogging about Asian culture for more than two years.
She said that she wanted to start her
