Influencers you should be following for Black History Month

There are hundreds of Instagram influencers out there, so to save you trolling through Instagram for hours on end, we’ve done the leg work, or thumb work?  

At Fashion North we think you should be following people who inspire you. We don’t always want an outfit too outgoing and we don’t always want something too casual so, whether you’re looking for some casual inspiration or something a little bit more outgoing, we’ve got you covered.

She has a large following on YouTube where she shows makeup routines, try on hauls and her hair care routine (however, in the video Sephora speaks French so unless you’re fluent you might need subtitles)!

So, I’ve recently incorporated @elizabetharden’s new Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Hydra-Plumping Serum Capsules into my skincare routine over this past month and let me tell you this is hands down the best addition I’ve added into my skincare routine this year! I remember my Mum used to have a product similar when I was much younger and I was enamoured by it as it looked so expensive and ladylike. I didn’t even know what it was but I promised myself when I grew up, I’d be using them too and how perfectly has it turned out for me?! It leaves my skin so soft and smooth and I’ve truly noticed a massive difference. What makes it so special is the Hyaluronic Acid penetrates the skin 4x times deeper so my skin feels more hydrated and the ceramides lock in the moisture. It’s definitely one to consider. Head over to my stories to see how I use it and for 2x complimentary 7-day capsule samples (retinol and advance) when purchasing any Ceramide Capsules 60 pcs from you can use my code MELISSAHA.
