The Asian beauty community, despite being a minority, has consistently offered a plethora of offerings in the industry. Let’s not forget the trailblazing Michelle Phan, the original beauty blogger, who skyrocketed to fame in 2008 with her viral Lady Gaga makeup tutorial.
As the year progresses, the Asian beauty community remains steadfast in challenging the industry’s double standards. Through platforms like TikTok and Instagram, these beauty gurus have repeatedly demonstrated that Asian beauty encompasses more than just surface-level aesthetics. They provide us with invaluable knowledge about skincare, makeup techniques, and product recommendations.
Hence, it is important that we continue to wholeheartedly support these Asian beauty gurus who have paved the way for emerging talents.
