100+ Black Owned Beauty Brands you need to know

Criticism of the lack of diversity in the beauty industry and the success of Fenty Beauty has led conglomerate beauty companies and large independent brands to finally take the hint and develop diverse product lines that cater to dark skin  or collaborate with beauty bloggers of colour.

Despite the celebration at the increased number of options for multiethnic customers, the onslaught of product launches with 40+ shades has some customers questioning the authenticity behind these new campaigns. 

Whether it's done through influencers or the brand itself, authenticity and emotional connection are what the new generation of beauty shoppers and clamouring for. 

It's definitely questionable when brands that previously let complaints about shade ranges fall on deaf ears previously are suddenly singing the sweet song of diversity to the tune of increased revenue. 

Looking for brands that are borne out of grassroots communities? Look no further than this, the most comprehensive list of Black Owned Beauty Brands you'll find online. 

Since the list is in alphabetical order, we'll do an honourable (we're Canadian, it's not a typo sis) shoutout to our product line MFMG Cosmetics first (Sorry, we make the rules 🤷🏿).

MFMG Cosmetics started out as hashtag #makeupformelaningirls to bring attention to the need for increased diversity in beauty and morphed into a beauty brand after our community of  200,000+ women (now including you!) indicated that they wanted to see more beauty entrepreneurs that looked like them and more products tailored to their unique complexion needs. 

Enough about us, you came here for the goods!

Tropic Isle and EverButter are black owned. I think Fenty is as well

Mrs. Min

Flori Roberts is not a black owned business.

Yassss! I’ve tried a few of these brands. Koyvoca sells foundations and is black owned too!
