12 Beauty & Fashion Brands That Should Be on Your Radar for Black Business Month

August is Black Business Month, which is a great time to support and buy from Black-owned brands. Luckily, there are plenty of beauty, home and wellness brands to shop from (and there just might be a few that you haven’t discovered yet). To get you started, we rounded up 12 of our favorite brands that should be on your radar (and in your carts) all month long and beyond.



CEO and founder Rebecca Allen always had trouble finding a nude shoe that matched her skin tone. So, she decided to launch her own shoe collection featuring five nude shades for women of color. The eponymous brand has three styles to choose from—pumps, flats and two-strapped heels—that can be worn to work, a night out with the gals or a dinner date with the beau. (While you’re at it, get a nude face mask to match your new shoes.)

Shop the brand: The Skim Flat ($150); The New Pump ($165); The Two Strap Sandal ($178)
