Hey, guys!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! In light of the recent events in America, we’ve decided that we need to do everything we can to try to uplift our community. Our first step: the B.O.M.B. Challenge!! If you aren’t familiar with it, B.O.M.B stands for Black Owned Makeup Brands. The challenge started on YouTube when beauty gurus decided to do full face makeup tutorials using only products from black-owned makeup brands. The idea is to spread awareness and publicity for the awesome products that black companies are offering! I’m sure my women of color know how hard it can be to find products that complement our skin tones. We also know how disheartening it can be to find out that brand you LOVE secretly (or not so secretly) has what we’ll call “questionable viewpoints” when it comes to people of color. So why not explore/support makeup that is made for us and by us?!
From now until the beginning of March, the ladies of IHC have challenged each other to ONLY purchase black owned beauty and skin care products. So like I said, WE NEED YOUR HELP! What are those companies that you just love?? If you have a product or makeup line that you just can’t get enough of, put it in the comment section below. Remember they MUST be black owned!!
The goal is to take your suggestions and explore world of B.O.M.B.!!! We plan to showcase the companies via video and/or blog reviews of the products we find along the way. We hope to have enough products by the end of the challenge to do a full face B.O.M.B video of our own!
Whether you’re an owner or a customer, connect with us and let us know what companies/products we should look into! Be sure to subscribe to Indy Hip Chic on YouTube, follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr @indyhipchic, and like Indy Hip Chic on Facebook to see our progress in the challenge! We’ll pop in periodically to tell you our faves so far! We hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to explore your options and put something back into the black community too! Thanks in advance for your help! =D
Indy Hip Chic is a lifestyle blog following the amazingly awesome lives of 4 Indy natives. Originally created to be a creative outlet and place to try new things we thought why not share this experience??? And with that Indy Hip Chic was born. From cosplay to vegan recipes we cover a little bit of everything while showing off the place we call home.
