Reflect Beauty Awards

The Reflect Beauty Awards is a first of its kind celebration of the very best in makeup, haircare, and skincare products that meet the unique beauty needs of multicultural women. For the next 4 weeks, we’re celebrating the brands that celebrate us!

Our Judges

Your favorite influencers and editors will be tackling our biggest beauty hurdles, and discussing the most effective solutions and winning products to get the job done.  The best part—your faves are actually objectively choosing and sharing the products THEY love! This is not a drill! #ThisIsNotAShill This is an educational tool, a platform for each of us to learn, and share our experiences, frustrations, and triumphs of being our naturally gorgeous selves! 

In partnership with key thought leaders in the beauty space, and high profile influencers, we’ve planned a fun, fabulous and educational month for you, and we truly hope you’ll join us.  Please stay tuned for plenty of bomb tutorials, wholly relevant articles, weekly beauty box giveaways, and even a few special guests! Next up, Makeup Week!
