Black-Owned Beauty Brands

Spending so much time at home and limiting our contact with others, has proven to be the perfect time to discover and test new beauty products. If you’re like us and enjoy discovering awesome new brands, especially those with strong values and an emphasis on inclusion and respect of others, you'll love these 7 Black-owned beauty brands!

B.Simone Beauty: B.Simone Beauty offers beautiful neutrals and bright and shiny shades featuring everything you need to make your lips pop.

Pear Nova: Whether you’re like us and haven’t made it to the nail salon yet, or DIY manicures are just your thing, Pear Nova’s vegan, gel lacquer is for you. Show off one of their 10 beautiful shades that last for up to 3 weeks!

Ace Beaute: Their super-pigmented eyeshadow pallets come in shades for everyone. If you’re looking for the perfect everyday eye, try the Scarlet Dusk palette. For something bolder and summery, dip your brushes in their Oceanic palette.

Lamik Beauty: If big, bold brows are your thing, Lamik (which stands for ‘Love and Make-up in Kindness’) offers super pigmented brow powders and refillable compacts to reduce the amount of plastic in their packaging. A win for the environment and a win for your brows!

UnSun Cosmetics: SPF is the most important part of every beauty routine, no matter what your skin color is. UnSun’s mineral, tinted sunscreen doesn’t leave a white residue and easily blurs blemishes -- all while protecting you from harmful UV rays.

Base Butter: Ditch your one-and-done make-up-removing wipe for Basebutter’s Microfiber facial cleansing cloth. A soft, washable cloth is so much better for your skin and the environment!

The Lip Bar: With more products than their name implies, The Lip Bar creates vegan, cruelty-free make-up for ‘busy people.’ Their fast-face kits include everything you need to get ready for that important Zoom meeting in record time -- and it all comes in your perfect shade. 

Let us know if you try any of the products we mention! We’d love to hear what you think on Instagram and Twitter.
