Welcome to MN8Beauty (pronounced emanate beauty)
MN8Beauty is an inner wellness and beauty brand that combines useful mindfulness practices, metaphysical knowledge, and makeup artistry to empower individuals. MN8Beauty believes in the power of alchemy, artistry, and authenticity. More specifically, MN8Beauty believes that aesthetics are a form of self-care, self-love, and reclaiming agency over one's physical experience.
MN8Beauty is dedicated to empowering EVERY beauty, whether through a personalized makeup experience, masterclass, or chakra session.
Our ideal beauties are those who LOVE turning heads, shaking tables, making moves, and living unapologetically!
Our commitment is to create inspiring SIGNATURE looks, complementary fragrances, and safe spaces that affirm your innate beauty!
Birthed by a former makeup artist Candice (pronouns she/they), MN8Beauty was the result of learning how to affirm Black and Indigenous folk, rejecting Eurocentric beauty standards, navigating the cosmetic industry, all while managing symptoms of bipolar disorder. As a person whose Black, Queer, Non-Binary, and Neurodivergent intersections often contribute to being othered or dismissed, MN8Beauty was an affirmation of existence and radical self-acceptance.
One of the defining moments that led to MN8Beauty's birth was when Candice was given "professional feedback" that her aesthetics and communication style were intimidating to her employer's demographic, and that she needed to soften her looks and tone in order to be more approachable and profitable. In that moment, it became evidently clear how Black and femme bodies and voices are policed and subjected to the longstanding effects of colonialism and capitalism.
As a result of her frustration, Candice began dedicating hours developing her craft. She decided to honor the ritual of applying makeup as a meditative practice. Drawing on inspiration from beautiful crystals like rose quartz, citrine, red jasper, and chrysocolla, Candice used artistry to align with intention. Eventually she began sharing these crystal-inspired makeup looks on IG Live, which led to the hashtag #makeupandmeditation and #makeupismyritual. Through these live sessions, Candice and countless others shared intimate space and in-depth conversations about agency, affirmation, awareness, and so much more.
MN8Beauty continues to evolve and examine ways to cultivate community to help people discover all parts of themselves so that WE can all emanate beauty.
"Snatch Someone's Sons Soul" oil (I named it that) decadently handcrafted with bomb intentions and vibrations by my Sistar Candice. This scent is uber feminine and supremely magical and peep those crystals charging the "good good" on up. Liquid Gold, bout to dab some on, hit the gym and ask for some help with these weights and holding my posture during those squats!

"Bae-be let me tell you something. This oil is on one thousand and the streets ain't ready for me. It's so refreshing and smells like new beginnings. It gives me a sense of peace, prosperity, love, and everything that represents me. I literally just got it and put it on and started feeling myself and I didn't know how to act, lol. I went into my daughters room and she says waht do you have on and I want some. Thank you for your time and your gift. It's me against the world in my Tupac voice.
