16 Black Owned Fashion and Beauty Businesses to Support Now

As a white person I have privilege. I have never feared for my life while wearing a hoodie, nor lost a loved one to police brutality. I will NEVER even begin to know the struggle or pain the black community is feeling. It is not my place as a white person to speak on behalf of the black community, nor accept glory for advocating for black lives because that is something we ALL should be doing. Not just today and tomorrow, but forever. As you are posting your stories on Facebook and Instagram, make sure you stand by them once the protests die down. This is not the time to sit silent or become defensive about your privilege (which if you are, please educate yourself on what white privilege is here), use it to speak up and help those who don’t have it.This isn’t a trend to hop on, these are people’s lives.

With that being said, there are various ways you can support the black community and fight for equality. One of them being shop black owned businesses. Here are a list of some amazing black owned fashion and beauty companies:

Sorella

A personal fave, I have shopped here many times both in the storefront and online. Their clothing, shoes and accessories are so cute.

The Lip Bar

A vegan and cruelty free makeup brand.
