Black-Owned Beauty Brands//black history month

Hi everyone! On Tuesday I shared a few poems with you all. For today’s post I wanted to talk about black owned beauty brands. The seven brands I’ve listed below definitely deserve a bit more recognition. From developing extensive shade ranges to being vegan and cruelty free, each brand on this list has something amazing to bring to the table.

First up on the list is Juvia’s Place.

Known for their vivid pressed glitter palettes, Juvia’s Place strives to provide long lasting, vivid color for all. Products are priced between $18-$30 for single items. Bundles range from $30-$148. The brand is cruelty free, and most products are vegan as well.

 

Second on the list is Beauty Bakerie.

Cruelty free, Beauty Bakerie follows a cute “bakery” theme with all of their products, with names like “Cake Face Concealer” and “Flour Setting Powder”. The brand also has a blog, as well as tutorials for most of their products and lookbooks. Products are reasonably priced, especially for the quality (roughly $16-$42).

 

An up and coming skincare and haircare brand, Folie Apothecary

The place for anything lips: The Lip Bar.

Frustrated with the beauty industry,  Melissa Butler created The Lip Bar. Providing affordable lip products for all, the brand is also vegan and cruelty free.. The brand also has a blog, with posts about everything from tips to giveaways to hacks. All products are $12-$14.

 

Next up, BlackUp.

Created for women of color, BlackUp is more on the high end. Their products can be found at Sephora, and range from roughly $12 from nail polishes and $45 for primers and other complexion products.

 

And finally, Black Opal Beauty.

Carrying makeup and skincare products, Black Opal Beauty has a product for everyone. Their shade range runs deep, so you’re bound to find something in your shade and undertone. The brand carries makeup and skincare for just about every skin concern you may have, from dryness to hyperpigmentation to aging. When you purchase an Even True® product, 25% of the proceeds will go to Malaika to help solve the illiteracy issue in the Congo. Read more about it here. All products are under $20, which is fairly inexpensive.

 

Hopefully this post added a few brands to your list of places t shop from! All of the brands on this list are great, and I think supporting black owned businesses as well as minority owned as a whole is really important. I hope you all are enjoying this little series, I’ll be back on Tuesday with a new post!
