Since it’s October, I want to do something special, and focus on the gothic and spooky side of life. So why not combine two of my favourite things, makeup and Halloween. Before, it was very difficult for those in the Goth subculture to find makeup, among other things, catered towards them. Nowadays it’s easier than ever to find gothic makeup brands. Many of these brands on this list are indie, vegan and cruelty-free. Each one is unique in their own way, so make sure to check them out.
When I was younger, I was heavy into media like anime and alternative music. I was even into Japanese fashion and scene culture. However as a young black girl, there was literally no one that looked like me. As such, I was easily discouraged when I wanted to get into say goth or kawaii fashion. Nowadays the game has changed and a lot more people who are doing blogs and YouTube. But if you don’t know where to look, it can still be a bit difficult. Therefore to help you out, I’ve made a list of five alternative Black YouTubers that you should check out.
This post is not the end all be all of black alternative YouTubers, or one based on popularity. It is a list that I compiled based on the YouTubers who I want and videos that I enjoy. If you want to see who made my list, then continue reading after the jump.
