Beauty Diversity

With everything that is happening in the world, especially as of late, I want to bring some diversity to the table. I believe that we can all learn from different cultures and here at Y. Beauty, I want to do just that.

This week, I am taking my little beauties for a trip around the globe to learn all about different beauty tips and tricks! No Passport? No Problem!

P.S. You may even be surprised where some of your beauty habits originate from!
