Advocate for Diversity
If you are familiar with the beauty industry then you are most likely aware of the lack of inclusivity when it comes to the products and the actual representation of beauty. Let’s take a quick trip back to the 90s, shall we? Commercials, printed adverts, and the products themselves were practically made for a demographic that honestly did not show much range and 100% lacked diversity. Black women had to work around the ashy, gray tones of foundations and the ghostly powders from the 90s up until recently, thanks to Ms. Aina. She had a platform and not only did she use it to directly speak to consumers and producers about this hole in the industry but she also collaborated with brands to expand shade ranges and enhance the formulas of these products.
Shows Useful Makeup Tips & Tricks
Jackie Aina has built a rapport with her subscribers. She is (amongst a few selected) the go-to for a stamp of approval on any beauty product on the market. Her tutorials are in-depth and super simple to follow. Most YouTubers we know would apply the makeup in front of a camera and post the finished product but Jackie would explain how to apply the product, demonstrate and state reasons why she likes the product or how it may work for people with similar skin types. All components are very helpful when finding a makeup routine that works for you.

Aunty Jackie does not limit herself to beauty related subjects. She is a woman who is wise beyond her years based on the difficult obstacles she has faced in life and how she maneuvered throughout.
