15 Beauty Moments From Afropunk That Truly Slayed

Come through

Brooklyn's Afropunk festival is more than a music and arts festival. It's a weekend of celebration and unapologetic black excellence. It is, perhaps, the best festival for street style, street beauty, and, well, everything else. Solange and SZA brought their A Game this year, and so did Afropunk's festivalgoers. We hit the ground outside the fest with photographer Collins Nai and his assistant Andie Clarkson in search of all things beauty. Boy, did we find it. Afropunk forever. This is how you make beauty trends your own.

See for yourself in our exclusive gallery, presented by Rimmel London.
