Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen Black entrepreneurs take over the beauty world. After years of asking brands to create products with us in mind to no avail, they finally flipped the script. Gone are the days that beauty lovers feel left out of the industry.
Beauty lovers are finding bronzers in their desired shades, sulfate-free haircare products and skincare products designed with melanin in mind. No matter what you’re missing from your collection, you’ll be sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. That’s why we always make it a point to show our fellow Black creatives as much love as possible—and that means spreading the word and opening up our purses.
With the end of the year almost upon us, you may find that you’re running low on the the essentials. So, instead of doing without, take the time to browse some new finds that have potential to become your new must-haves.
You already know the deal. It’s time to take out your credit card, secure an internet connection and browse our weekly picks of Black beauty products. From makeup, skincare, haircare and more, prepare to scope out some new favorites and some staple picks. Happy shopping!
