Finding a clean beauty makeup brand is hard enough, but finding one created by a Black woman is even harder. But no matter your complexion or skin concern, look no further — LYS Beauty is getting ready to launch, and it has everything you need for a full and safe makeup routine. Aside from the perfect packaging and must-have formulas, LYS Beauty's mission to make clean and natural beauty accessible to everyone is what's truly the most admirable. 

Ahead, check out what LYS Beauty has to offer — and when you can find it at one of the biggest beauty retailers ever. 

The founder mentioned is Tisha Thompson, a true beauty OG. 

Formerly the vice president of marketing and innovation for PUR Cosmetics, she's no stranger to all that it takes to build a thriving brand with products people actually love. "We are launching on as the 1st Black Owned Clean Color Cosmetics Brand to be carried @sephora and @sephoracanada," the brand wrote on its page. "We are so proud to be launching with the very best in beauty and are honored that Sephora is supporting our mission in diversifying #cleanbeauty".

In what seems like something that should have happened ages ago, the first clean beauty brand created by a woman of color is finally coming to Sephora.

LYS Beauty is clean, cruelty-free, vegan, and above all, inclusive. "I’m so excited to finally reveal what I’ve been working so hard on over the past two years," the brand's founder wrote in an Instagram post debuting the products. "I made the decision to follow my dreams and live life to the fullest by creating my very own clean beauty brand and I can’t believe it’s officially happening! Launching 2.14.21."

The brand's launch, which includes a foundation, primer, lip oil, blush, setting powder, bronzer, and brushes, will be available on the official website on February 14, and will hit Sephora shelves on February 19. 

"Everyone deserves access to clean beauty," the brand declares. "And don’t worry, you will be able to get it very, very soon!"
