While representation is slowly progressing, it’s important to see and recognize the hard work behind many of these businesses that are being created for people of color, by people of color. The reality is Black-owned beauty brands are making their own beauty rules, one product or client at a time.

These brands are the stories and products of hard work, experiences, and generational beauty secrets – all of which come together to give us these fabulous businesses providing us with the products we desperately need. So the point is it’s important to support brands and businesses that are available because of the work it takes to get here.

With all that being said, here are 65 Black-owned makeup, skincare, and hair care brands and businesses that should immediately be on your radar (and add to that cart, right now!):

1. 127 East
