We can show our support for black creators by shopping and putting our money into black-owned businesses. The launch of Fenty Beauty and its success got the attention of the beauty industry and turned their heads to the need for inclusivity. Many brands released various products and shades to accommodate women of color, particularly, Black women. While its important to note the increased inclusivity of the industry, we must recognize and celebrate black-owned brands that create products to specifically accommodate their communities.

KNC Beauty

Kristen Noel Crawley created this brand after discovering the lack of natural lip masks available- so she created her own. KNC Beauty sells the first all natural and collagen infused lip mask in Mint and OG Rose flavors. The Supabalm retails for $22 and is also infused with Moringa and Kuikui oil.

Beauty Bakerie

Breast cancer survivor and single mom Cashmere Nicole created Beauty Bakerie, a makeup company that focuses on baking supply inspired packaging.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
