The category is: Beauty. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but the influence of Black aesthetics upon the beauty industry is unquestionable. Also indisputable is the impact of this year’s TGU 50 Beauty honorees, ten incredible artists, entrepreneurs, advocates and activists (or all of the above) who have changed the face of beauty—literally.
