My Black Owned Beauty Wishlist

My Black Owned Beauty Wishlist

It’s black history month! So I want to encourage you all to support indie black owned beauty businesses. We all know every beauty company basically makes the same shades of - well - everything. So why not use that money you were gonna spend on that mauve pink shade from Sephora, and support a great black owned business! Or find a great new product to obsess over. Here are four products on my black owned beauty wishlist!

The Grape Life x Beauty Bakerie Makeup

Beauty Bakerie really is the most adorable brand. Everything is baking related! This metallic grape color is literally what I’m all about! Despite my blog colors (lol), my favorite color is purple and who doesn’t like metallic. Plus, they are working with Gabby Douglas to create a new lipstick collection. Please just take my moey!

 

Mary x Coloured Raine

Coloured Raine is a black owned brand I have been dying to try! I literally want every color, but this red metallic color really stood out to me. It’s a classic burgundy with pink and purple undertones with a metallic twist.

 

Masquerade Palette x Juvia’s Place

I keeeeeep saying I’ll learn how to do my eyeshadow. Mainly because I keep lusting after these gorgeous palettes. The color shades is Juvia’s Place are so pigmented and look amazing on everyone! And even if I don't ever master the fine art of eyeshadow application, this palette is certainly Instagram worthy.

Savage x The Lip Bar

A post shared by @thelipbar on

I openly stan for The Lip Bar. It was one of the first indie black owned beauty companies I became familiar with! You might know them from Shark Tank, or more importantly from their mobile trucks, Forever21, Nasty Gal or Target. I have the red shade “Bawse Lady” and I love their liquid matte formula so I’m dying for another shade.

What black owned beauty products do you love?
