16 Black-Owned Mother’s Day Gifts Across Makeup, Skincare, Hair and Wellness
1. THE NO-FUSS MOM
For the mom who doesn’t fuss about makeup. She’s not concerned with Insta-ready, glammed up face. She wants something fast and simple so that she can get out of the door and seize the day.
The Lip Bar’s Easy Beauty Bundle does just that. This kit comes with a foundation, concealer, quad face palette, brow pencil and lip lacquer – all housed in a cute peach pouch.

2. THE FOODIE MOM
Her kitchen is her oyster. Her oven is her tool. She’s the type to awe her guests with freshly baked, heavenly cookies to die for. And, she wears makeup!
If so, she’ll adore the entire Beauty Bakerie line, especially these egg-shaped beauty sponges. They come in an egg carton (not even kidding). While you’re at it, you can grab the finely-milled Flour Setting Powder to help set her foundation. That’ll bring your total to $42 plus shipping.
Vegan | Cruelty-free | Paraben-free | Sulfate-free | Latex-free | $6.95 U.S Shipping
3. THE BOUGIE MOM
When it comes to makeup, she loves to treat herself to all things glamorous. You might find her binging a Real Housewives franchise or the latest season of Shondaland’s Bridgerton. She’s that mom that loves to look good and knows she looks damn good.
Treat her like the queen she is with Pat McGrath’s limited edition Bridgerton Totale II set. The extravagant blockbuster set contains an eyeshadow palette, seven lipsticks, a blush quad palette, khol eyeliner, and two body shimmers. It’s extra, alright.

4. THE MAKEUP ARTIST MOM
To her, makeup brushes matter. Her brushes are her babies (except you, of course!) and they must be maintained at all costs. If makeup artistry is her expertise, then wow her with FENTY Beauty’s 4-piece makeup brush set.
The Artistry Pro Complexion Essentials set consists of four different brushes to apply her foundation, concealer, setting powder, and highlighter with. Customers rave about how soft the bristles are and how seamlessly it blends. The result is a flawless finish that’ll have mom looking like a movie star.

5. THE SHEA BUTTER MOM
You know it. Bathroom? Shea butter. Dressing table? Shea butter. Vacation bag? Shea butter. She believes in the power of shea butter for glowing skin! So, what better black-owned mother’s day gift to give than one from the experts of shea butter themselves, Buttah Skin.
The Customizable Buttah Body Trio is everything mom needs to soak her skin in all the goodness of shea. First comes the luxurious shea cleansing bar for an all-over polish, followed by the rich lather of Buttah’s shea body wash. Then comes the delightful whipped body butter to seal all that moisture in. It’s all the experience of a spa right from the comfort of her home.

6. THE ISLAND MOM
She loves the sun, the sea, the waves. That’s why we feel Fenty Skin’s Start’rs Bundle from our Barbados queen (Rhianna) will suit our vacay-loving moms.
Here’s what’s in it: Total Cleans’r with Barbados Cherry, Fat Water Niacinamide Toner Serum, and the vacation must-have Hydra Vizor SPF 30 sunscreen. The best part? Each item is full sized, so it’ll last long. P.S: The SPF does *not* have a white cast, so mom can flaunt her melanin confidently.

7. THE AGE-DEFIANT MOM
When it comes to luxury skincare, this mom doesn’t skimp. She looks for derm-approved products that helps to rewind the visible markers of time. She’ll splurge if it makes her feel (and look) like a million bucks. Plus, it must be safe for skin. Black-owned Epara Skincare is here to give her just that.
Epara Hydrating Serum is an all-natural, barrier-repairing serum powered by exotic actives such as onopordum acanthium, licorice root extract, and frankincense oil. They work in sync to target wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. It’ll leave mom’s skin looking brighter, softer and nourished-er.

8. THE D.I.Y MOM
This mom would typically visit a spa and ask her clinician for at-home equivalents! She just loves to take control of her own skin rituals, like the boss she is. No, we aren’t going to recommend a skincare recipe. What we are going to do is introduce her to dry brushing – a bougie method for full body exfoliation.
Meet Gilded Body’s marble body brush – an aesthetically-pleasing brush with soft, natural bristles for gentle exfoliation. This award-winning product flakes away dead skin cells – anywhere on the body – for an instant glow-up. There are 5 unique patterns of 100% authentic marble to choose from.

9. THE JET-SETTER MOM
There are some people who spend their lifetime in a single country. And then, there’s mom. Mom loves to travel. She loves adventure but also convenience. So, she’s after travel-sized products tailored to her black hair. Enters Adwoa Beauty’s Baomint Deluxe Trial Kit.
Make no mistake – this trial kit is anything but small in terms of quantity. Each bottle comes with a generous 3.3oz (100ml) worth of product that can last at least 4 washes. So, this kit belongs in mom’s bathroom cabinet as much as it belongs in her luggage.
Cruelty-free | Paraben-free | Sulfate-free | Alcohol-free | Silicon-free | $10.20 U.S Shipping
10. THE PONYTAIL MOM
Satin cap by night, ponytail by day. We stan a mom that cares about protective styling. For the mom that keeps it together – hair included, gift her this 100% Mulberry silk 2pk scrunchies by Sienna Naturals. It’s extra stretchy, zero-tugging, and cute like her tresses. The adorable scrunchies set come in light or dark green.

11. THE WASHDAY-OBSESSED MOM
This mom is totally into hair care. Her washdays are her ‘me time’. Between the oil-heating pads, scalp massages and air-drying wraps, she doesn’t skip a step. She knows the buzzwords too, and she’s down for the newest hair oil in town.
That’s why we think Pattern by Tracee Ellis Ross’s Deluxe Treatment Bundle is perfect for her. This bundle contains everything she needs for shiny, bouncy curls. It contains two hair masks, a scalp serum, self-heating packs, argan oil blend, microfiber towel, hair clip and satin cap.

12. THE HAIR-Y MOM
She’s blessed with the kind of hair many wish for! While she may embrace her natural curls, she may also appreciate a smooth canvas. For her, shave day should be as seamless and cut-free as possible.
Grant her wishes with Oui The People’s shaving duo for sensitive skin. The rose-gold razor gently removes hair without burns, while the citrus-scented Gel-to-Milk shaving cream moisturizes, brightens, and soothes.

13. THE ZEN MOM
She might thrive in the chaos, but she also craves the calm. Help her escape to perfect bliss with this luxurious, mood-boosting candle by Brown Girl Jane.
The Warm Cashmere Perfumed Candle is ‘feminine, sophisticated, and fresh’, with hints of rose and musk. It boasts a 65-hour burn time to help mom decompress whenever she needs to.
Vegan | Non-synthetic | Non-toxic | Paraben-free | $5 U.S Shipping
14. THE TEA MOM
This is for the coffee, smoothie or tea-drinking mom who doesn’t mind an extra side of collagen. Sure, you could get her a serum (see Epara’s Hydrating Serum). But, if she stays sipping on something, she’ll appreciate beauty teas even more.
GOLDE’s Daily Glow Bundle gives her all that and more. The trio kit contains cult-fave collagen-boosting powder, hyaluronic acid-rich supplement, and a brightening papaya face mask. We picture a masked-up mom sipping on her collagen-rich liquids, while she reaps all of their anti-aging benefits.

15. THE STRESSED MOM
Every mom needs her beauty sleep, especially after a hard day’s work. That’s why she’ll appreciate this sleep drops by Brown Girl Jane. This quirky, functional gift will calm her nerves through the night. She’ll wake up to a brand new, refreshed and destressed her.
Vegan | Cruelty-free | 100% Natural | $5 U.S Shipping
16. THE PERFUME-HOARDER MOM
She has a go-to scent, but she’s also open to new fragrances. She seldom heads to an event without a few spritz of her faves. Just a whiff of it makes her feel on top of the world. That’s why we think she’ll love Lost in Paradise eau de parfum.
Black-owned Chris Collins is no stranger to unisex fragrances that transport the senses to another place. Perhaps the most feminine of the collection, Lost in Paradise is ‘serene, wistful, intuitive’. Inspired by the Caribbean Sea, it’s an earthy floral scent with a blend of coconut, bamboo and marine notes.

Fouyolle, UNWRP is where art meets function. They offer eco-friendly wrapping papers and/or gift bags. You can get these from unwrp.com, Nordstorm, Target, or West Elm.
That completes our 2022 editor’s picks of the best black-owned mother’s day gifts in beauty. We hope you find an amazing gift that’s as unique as mom!
