If you haven’t heard of MUA AJ Crimson or his cosmetic line, here’s the rundown: AJ Crimson is a self-taught MUA who saw a need for more options for women of color in the world of beauty. On his site, he writes:

Issa Rae, Teyana Taylor, Jackie Aina, Fergie, Serayah, and Tamanna Roashan (@dressyourface) are all fans of AJ Crimson Beauty. We’ve been dying to try out the line and now is the perfect time for a little spring beauty splurge.
