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.

When I was 19, I lost my father, the only caretaker I'd known my entire life.

Growing up in Brooklyn, NY in the '80s, it was common for black children to be raised by drug-addicted parents. My mother abandoned my sister and I while succumbing to her addiction to crack cocaine. But my father, he stayed. And that man loved me fiercely for the years we had, while battling his own addiction to heroin. Despite his own pain, he took care of me. Losing him is still the worst pain I've ever felt in my life.
