We’ve asked exceptionally accomplished women to reveal how to create a look as impressive as your resume. Read our exclusive interview with Michaela Angela Davis, Editorial Brand Director at Centric TV and Image Activist.
*Describe your own ‘sure-thing’ beauty look at work:
My entire look and spirit is rooted in my hair. I rock my “happy hair”, a healthy, hydrated, textured, and touchable blonde ‘fro—c/o Dicky and hair rules (love all things Monoi for hair by Carols Daughter).
I keep my skin simple, allowing natural colors to come through. I wear Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer and if the day requires more coverage I’m OBSESSED with Edward Bess’ Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector. I also think NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is a gift from the Gods. I use a fluffy brush and dust bronzer on my cheeks, forehead and chin..maybe a hot pink on the apples (Edward Bess 02 Filled With Desire) and soft olive or bronze eye liner (Urban Decay), mascara, and a mauvey matte lip (not so into gloss because I’m grown).
DooBop suggests Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Smog for a subtle eye pop and Becca’s Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold for luminous skin.

Who’s your beauty inspiration and why?
This may be really corny but my #1 inspiration is my daughter Elenni aka @dopedaugter. She is a TRUE beauty girl, she pays such thoughtful attention to her GORGEOUS skin and she genuinely gets excited by beauty and ALWAYS smells amaze balls! She’s currently a beauty professional at TOCCA.
As far as celebs go, I’ve always thought Grace Jones was brilliant in how she could look so modern and classic at the same damn time. She could be extreme yet chic, a very delicate balance. Largely because she too, has incredible skin (I’m a skin girl obvi) that can take color, shine, and design. Grace also keeps her hair quiet and lets those cheek bones give us all life!
The other is my mentor Susan Taylor and her Afro-centric chic timelessness.
…and Honorable mentions for hair realness to Angela Davis and Janet Mock!
My beauty represents happiness, culture and equality.
