Read on for our list of Black-owned beauty brands you absolutely have to try ASAP. Beauty Bakerie"Beauty Bakerie is a piece of my peace that I want to share with the world." - Cashmere NicoleFounded by Cashmere Nicole, Beauty Bakerie is a color cosmetics line that encourages men and women to feel beautiful in all of life's moments. Cashmere Nicole has an incredible story in which her perseverance and deep faith guided her into starting her own beauty brand. By combining her love for all things beauty, baking, and giving back, Beauty Bakerie adds sweetness to anyones life. From the delightful packaging to the fun, pithy names (a mascara called Eyelash Icing... genius!) there's something in this line to make you smile, and look good! Oh, did we mention that Beauty Bakerie products are made to be long lasting A.K.A. No more spending time touching up, just enjoying life <3Black Opal Beauty"Black Opal celebrates the diversity of culture and skin tones, and invites all women to embrace their unique shades of beauty." - Black Opal BeautyInspired by the nuances and beauty of Black skin, Black Opal Beauty is a staple in the beauty world, known for targeting skin concerns specific to Black skin, like hyperpigmentation. Combined with their range of makeup, Black Opal Beauty has the recipe for a smooth complexion locked in, from beginning to end. Juvia's place"Inspired by the vibrancy of Africa" - Juvia's PlaceCreated to "celebrate the rebels, rulers and queens and kings of African kingdoms of long ago" Juvia's Place is known to have the most incredibly pigmented shadows, liners, lipsticks, and the list really goes on. What's so special about Juvia's Place is that it's truly accessible; from their lowest price guarantee to the range of foundation shades and the eyeshadow colors available that show up on every skin tone. We love that this brand is focused on women of color; when shopping foundation colors, it's sorted from darkest shade to lightest. Also, the product names are sooo empowering, like their foundation is called "I Am Magic"... We have to stan. Sacha Cosmetics"Our vision was to develop a brand of makeup that all our women, regardless of ancestry, could wear." - Sacha CosmeticsSince 1979 in Trinidad & Tobago, Sacha Cosmetics has always catered to a diverse crowd. Because of the demographic in Trinidad & Tobago, Sacha Cosmetics has been creating makeup for Asian, Hispanic, African, American, Indian and other women of color. So, while inclusivity and diversity is only being met by basic American brands as of late, these traits are a cornerstone for Sacha Cosmetics (and all the brands on this list) since their conception. The quality of the products are amazing too, so you're 100% in good hands trying this brand for the first time. AJ Crimson"Giving women the tools and permission to fall in love with themselves again by helping them find their true beauty both outwardly and from within." - AJ CrimsonBeauty expert, Makeup Artist, and all-around lifestyle guru, AJ Crimson's namesake makeup line has the credentials to back it up.
