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.

It's no secret that the key to success lies in what we do on the weekends. You could spend it catching up on all things Shondaland or taking steps to get closer to your goal.

As life would have it, as I'm starting this piece, Kelis' music video for "Bossy" is playing on the tube. Something that I've always liked about Kelis, as an artist, is she's gonna do whatever she wants to do. We don't have to get it, so long as she does. If we like it, that's merely a bonus.
