From Fort Greene, Brooklyn to the big leagues, this week’s beauty crush is none other than singer/songwriter Justine Skye. The native New Yorker debuted almost four years ago and since then has experienced a steady rise in the music industry. Her talent knows no bounds–neither does her beauty.
For starters, despite the array of violet and turquoise hues that permeate her mermaid inspired mane, the vibrancy of the colors never clash with her makeup or her outfits. You’d think with all the dyes her mane goes through, damage and breakage would be prevalent. But whether cut short in a bob, sporting a curly afro, or with hair down to her waist, it never lacks shine and bounce.
Whether she follows a strict beauty regimen or if she’s just born with it and doesn’t have to scour the shelves for skin products like the rest of us, Justine’s ebony skin simply emits an enviable glow. Her face provides the perfect blank slate for makeup artists to play up her gorgeous features with light contouring techniques.
Whether it’s a nude lip paired with a subtle smokey eye, or a bold pout exhibiting vivid colors, Justine’s makeup is stunning enough to leave onlookers breathless. And it never seems caked on or overpowering.
Talent and looks aside, the 21 year old Purple Unicorn displays such an agreeable and down to Earth personality and has an undying love for her fans and supporters. And being signed to Roc Nation and Republic Records this year is the cherry on top.
So here’s to this week’s Beauty Crush, Justine Skye! Join us in wishing her immeasurable success in the years to come as she’s a welcome addition to our list of black girls killing it!
