honored to announce my partnership with @urbandecaycosmetics as their newest global citizen 💜 growing up, i always admired them as a brand that championed diversity and celebrated individuality, and i feel that stronger now than ever. it’s important to support brands that actively do the work to be inclusive. beauty comes in all shapes and colors, and it’s imperative that we see that reflected in the beauty industry. stay tuned for more! #urbandecay
we showed up, we listened, but that is still not enough. sharing this video is not enough. one of the speakers today encouraged us to stop being individuals and start joining organizations. he said it’s not enough to be an individual in today’s society. i definitely needed to hear that, and i’m sure many of you do too. do your research and find the organizations that need you. #defundthepolice #jackielaceymustgo @janayathefuture @blklivesmatter @blmlosangeles
these are the voices that need to be heard. follow @janayathefuture @blmlosangeles @blklivesmatter and if you live in LA come to the official BLM protest at 3 PM today! see you there. link in bio if you can’t show up and want to know other ways to take action. #blacklivesmatter #amplifymelanatedvoices
black lives matter. this is not a trend. this is a movement that calls for serious action. i’m always skeptical of social media trends because they run the risk of framing the BLM movement as a trend. there’s nothing inherently harmful about sharing this black square, it’s important to express solidarity, but just remember that saying “i stand with you” and throwing in a hashtag is literally the bare minimum of what you can do. don’t use this as an excuse to become complacent and inactive. the goal of #blackouttuesday is to disconnect from work, reconnect with your community, and amplify black voices. link in bio for ways to take action. ♥️
the amount of truffle content i‘d be showering you with if it weren’t for my wiser self fighting the impulse with every ounce of my being. hope you’re all taking care of yourselves and others around you, especially those more vulnerable than us. let’s tone down the panic, check our sources for reliable information, and focus on containing this thing reasonably and efficiently. mandando beijos virtuais // sending virtual kisses 😙
