Hi you guys! This is my 2nd to last post to end out Black History Month! I’m hopeful that you all have loved all of the varied content! From the podcast, to the YouTube video, and the Black Beauty of the Day posts on my IG, I can say I have loved doing it and the feedback that has been given to me. For this post, I wanted to highlight a few Fashion, Makeup, and Skincare brands that are #blackowned! I was going to do beauty and include Hair but I just know wayyyyyy too many hair companies local and non-local and it would take all day lol so let me know if you want me to do more hair content or not. But it was very important for me to support black brands especially around this time of the year even though I do it year round I think between January and Febuary I’ve spent close to $550 supporting #blackowned business in some way shape or fashion. So here are a few brands I think you should check out when you get some time if you are looking to #buyblack. These are just a few of the brands you can support but not all of them of course! If I forgot anyone charge my head and not my heart, Some of the brands I’ve used and some I plan to buy from at some point. The brands I’ve used I’ll have pictures for but all of the brands will have a link to the website, Instagram or the Facebook page for the brand.
