They imagined every human that marched donating and the change it would create, and it was an AHA moment. They saw an opening for activist beauty, and thus Fempower Beauty was born.
The initial idea that Alexis and Christina had was for a product that femmes interact with on a daily basis to spark magic and create impact.

BITB TEAM’S TOP PICKS FOR #NATIONALLIPSTICKDAY

Posted by 07.29.19

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Color’Ink – Love this long lasting natural looking color that lasts without drying out my lips. My perfect shade is L111 Flawless, a neutral beigy nude. With well done up eyes and a few coats of rich glossy black mascara, it’s a good look. And did I mention that it smells light and kind of fruity… For night time or on camera, I go with YSL Rouge Pur Couture. It’s a luxurious silky texture, the shades are pretty fabulous and it glides on beautifully, no lip liner needed.
