If you can’t get them on speed dial, at least stalk these Black estheticians on the bird app for serious #skingoals.
Do you want skincare advice from knowledgeable, reputable, and, most importantly, hilarious professionals? Are you looking for someone who can recommend a product for your dry, irritated skin? Do you want to get your skin together and live your best life? Well, allow me to introduce you to the Black estheticians of Twitter.
These professional estheticians combine years of education and real-life experience to give you (and me!) the absolute best skincare advice.
Nai is the creator of the #60secondrule, the viral movement that literally changed my life (and my skin! Thank you!). She’s an esthetician based in Los Angeles and specializes in facials, waxing, and body treatments for people of color. Wanna see her before and after photos of her clients? Head to her Twitter!

Tiara Willis @MakeupForWOC
I feel like I’ve watched Tiara, aka MakeupforWOC, grow up before my very eyes. At the age of 16, she managed to create a haven for makeup looks for WOC and has since received her esthetician’s license. She frequently tweets both skincare advice and bomb ass makeup looks.
