Hi Glamour Dolls! Can you guys believe we are already in February? No lie, February isn’t my favorite month, why? Well, because it’s usually very long and really cold here in Michigan. It’s the month that’s in between we are almost close to warmer weather but not quite. It’s the anticipation that winter is almost over. However, I do love that we get to celebrate Black History Month. For black history month, I want to do something different today. Instead of sharing myself, I want to share black brands in the fashion and beauty industry that I love. If you are looking for some new black businesses to support check out the listings below. You’ll find vegan cosmetics, natural cosmetics, lashes, fashion, and fitness styles.
FOR HER COSMETICS

She makes all of her products and the cosmetics are made with natural ingredients. I actually got to meet Alyssa once at an event here literally right before this pandemic. Her products are amazing! ForHerCosmetics delivers great makeup for women all around, and foundations. What’s more, as of recently the mission has advanced as things improve, so ForHerCosmetics has been working on expanding the retention of young ladies in STEAM through “Science in Cosmetics”. I think that is really amazing and you can learn more about Alyssa and ForHerCosmetics here.
