Black-Owned Beauty Brands That Were So Good We're Taking Them Into 2019

Beauty & Fashion

2018 was a big year for Black-owned beauty brands and we hope that 2019 is even bigger.


We got to see some great Black-owned brands be put on the map, and even some like The Crayon Case grew quickly, amassing a huge following and bringing in over $1 million in revenue on Black Friday alone. The best way to see Black-owned brands flourish, no matter the industry, is by supporting them unapologetically. Whether it's sharing a post or making a purchase, supporting Black-owned brands, especially in the beauty industry where women of color contribute billions of dollars as consumers annually, should be a priority for your new year.

From body care to makeup, if you're looking to support some more Black-owned beauty brands in 2019, here are 9 brands that need to be on your radar in 2019.
