Unlike plucking a rabbit from a hat or making a quarter appear out of thin air, #BlackGirlMagic is actually and factually real. No tricks, no illusions. When our bright, melanated lights have every reason to burn out (police brutality, wage gaps, cultural appropriation, the usual), they only shine brighter. In celebration of that glorious #BlackGirlMagic, I asked some of my fave women at BuzzFeed to share how they stay lit on the inside with their go-to self-care rituals, and how they stay lit on the outside with one of their fave highlighters. Whether you’re a black girl looking to feel seen, or an ally who likes seeing black girls thrive, scroll on and get your life — and some highlighter recommendations to keep you glowing this fall/winter and beyond!
