She tells stories through content creation and is proud of her platform where Black women and women of color learn how to cultivate their best lives inside and out through their day-to-day routines.
“Quite often, the voices of Black creators are hidden and getting the opportunity to create and follow my own agenda on fashion, beauty and lifestyle is exciting. I’m extremely passionate about creating content that is not only eye-catching, but communicates a positive message. I also try to create content that depicts Black people exactly the way I view us—as beautiful.”

Originally from Harlem, China grew up surrounded by creativity. She creates a wide variety of beauty content including everything from simple everyday tips to creative makeup like her strawberry lemonade look below.
“My family noticed my interest in the fashion and beauty world and suggested that I enroll in Barbizon Modeling School. It was there that I was handed my very first set of makeup brushes and supplies. Little did I know that would spark my career path.”
We love China’s Jumprope content because her expertise as a makeup artist shines through and helps women branch from beyond their everyday makeup bags. China encourages her viewers to try a little something extra or to go bold the next time they attempt a new makeup look and is there to guide them each step of the way.
Meet Kayla Boyd of @kaylaboyd

As someone who writes about shopping for a living, she loves to share products with her audience, especially when it comes to sneakers, cool Black-owned businesses, curly hair tips, and home decor.
“My main area of focus is body positivity and fashion. As a plus-size woman, I know the struggles of not being able to find stylish clothes in your size—or being made to feel like you don’t deserve to be fashionable or desirable because of your size…I want women to feel empowered to express themselves, have confidence, and feel good at any size.”
