13 Highly Recommended Beauty Gems From Black-Owned Businesses


Along with educating yourself, attending protests, making frequent donations (click to donate to the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund, The National Bail Fund Network, and The Emergency Release Fund), and encouraging those around you to have conversations about the #BlackLivesMatter movement, an actionable way you can confront systemic inequality is by redirecting your funds to black-owned businesses. Below, I’ve rounded up a list of truly excellent beauty gems, tried and loved by myself, as well as many of my beauty-obsessed friends, editors, and writers. All of them are produced by black, independently owned skin-care, makeup, and hair-care brands — from an intensely vibrant, high-pigment eyeshadow palette to a tumeric-rich vitamin C serum.



Buttah Skin by Dorion Renaud - Facial Shea Butter Moisturizer

Dorion Renaud created Buttah Skin after noticing a lack of straight-forward, gentle skin-care products suitable for “melanin-rich, acne-prone” skin types. This deeply nourishing moisturizer incorporates noncomedogenic shea butter (meaning it won’t break you out) that is rich in vitamins A, B, and E to protect, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. This is great for any sensitive and acne-prone skin types in need of extra moisture.
