The Cut Launches "Black Beauty Matters" Celebrating Black Excellence

Good morning and welcome to 

#BlackBeautyMatters. Every day, but especially this month, the Cut is taking up space to celebrate Black beauty. We’ll be celebrating Black excellence and influence and all beauty content will center and highlight Black women. Everything from Black women in the world of nail art to an essay on Black perfumers changing the industry and incredibly comprehensive roundups of the best sunscreens, nude lipsticks, and tinted moisturizers for Black skin. Since becoming the Editor-in-Chief — and long before — it has been Lindsay Peoples Wagner’s mission to shine a spotlight on the biggest and brightest voices of our generation, saying, “we as Black women deserve to take up space, no apologies, and that’s exactly what this month is about.” Head to the link in our bio to read the full announcement by Lindsay Peoples Wagner.

It never feels like being Black is good enough or pretty enough, yet our features are exalted when not attached to a Black body.

But as a Black woman leading this publication, I am so proud that we get to use this platform to listen to Black women — women just like you — and have conversations that are too often pushed under the rug. This partnership with Sephora brings me so much joy, and I hope it does the same for you in experiencing a month of Black-beauty content that will spotlight some of the biggest and brightest voices of our generation.

I’m particularly excited for an editorial that centers Black women in the world of nail art; an essay on Black perfumers changing the industry; interviews with perfumer Chris Collins, inclusive-beauty-brand owner Danessa Myricks, and Carol’s Daughter’s Lisa Price; and incredibly comprehensive roundups of the best sunscreens, nude lipsticks, and tinted moisturizers for Black skin.

We as Black women deserve to take up space, no apologies, and that’s exactly what this month is about. So I hope you feel loved, celebrated, and as phenomenal as you are, and that you call the Cut home, as this is not just a month of content to us but a holistic part of inclusivity I so deeply care about. ~ Lindsay Peoples Wagner
