These makeup, skin care and hair care brands deserve your support today and every day.
Now more than ever, Black people need to be empowered, uplifted and supported. Whether you join as an ally on the front lines to protest racism and injustice, hire Black people in leadership roles (#PullUpOrShutUp) or support Black-owned businesses, the time is now to put your money where your #BlackOutTuesday post is.
One of the first ways to do that is to buy from Black-owned businesses. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many Black-owned businesses had to shutter their brick and mortar stores or suspend their e-commerce sites because of supply chain issues, yet only 12% of Black and brown business owners got Paycheck Protection Program loans. Even when the world isn’t in the midst of a pandemic-induced recession, banks routinely deny Black businesses access to loans and capital, which makes them more susceptible to failure.
