Organic Beauty Brands For Women of Color

Ever since Rihanna released her Fenty Beauty brand featuring a diverse foundation shade range of over 40 skin tones, other high profile beauty brands are doing the same. But inclusivity shouldn’t be an afterthought when it comes to creating a brand – it should be the first thing that’s talked about. But even when it comes to getting new beauty products, consumers should be aware of what they are putting in their bodies. People shouldn’t have to go to the non-cruelty free brands or brands filled with toxins just because they have more inclusive colors. Here are some brands you should be including in your beauty regimen.

1. Fenty Beauty

We can’t have a list of great beauty brands without including Rihanna’s groundbreaking cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty. Not only does she have an inclusive range of shades for foundations and concealers, but the brand itself has also gotten rave reviews from beauty gurus and consumers alike.

2. Beauty Counter

This highly-reviewed beauty brand might only have 10 shades but the lightweight formula gives full coverage without feeling cakey. The tint skin hydrating foundation has been recommended by many.
