Sephora’s Black Beauty Bosses Picks
Danessa Myricks Beauty
As a makeup artist, photographer, and entrepreneur Danessa Myricks has mastered the perfect beauty application and image and made a name for herself as one of the most creative in our makeup industry.
Here’s what we love from her collection at Sephora:
Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette
The Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette focuses on eye-catching shades and opulent multichrome textures that work for the entire face. It also features a selection of 4 different palette finishes and 14 different hues that deliver intensity with each application. The palette allows wearers to easily achieve both subtle & dramatic effects with multichrome, metallic and glass-like finishes.
Pattern by Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross is our best friend in our head. Tracee says PATTERN focuses on healthy hair & encourages each hair texture to take up as much space as it desires.
Wash Day Essentials Kit

A super-duo designed to help strands start fresh, the Wash Day Essentials kit contains two of Pattern’s most loved formulas.
