Must-Have Beauty that is Made in the USA

This week we are celebrating America by highlighting a handful of our favorite beauty brands that are based here in the USA. Supporting local businesses, both statewide and nationwide, is a great way to show you care about your community, so consider trying some of these beauty brands and we promise you’ll be glowing from sea to shining sea.

This brand was founded by Natalya Rachkova, an esthetician who emigrated to the U.S. from Uzbekistan, and beauty industry veteran Murphy Bishop II, who is an Alabama native. What started out as a home-cooked skin cream turned into what is now The Better Skin Co. Mirakle Cream that’s sold in Ulta stores all over the country.

Subtl Beauty Makeup Kit

Subtl Beauty

Our founder, Rachel Reid, came up with the idea for Subtl after spending her post-grad years traveling for work and juggling the various responsibilities of a busy young adult. She needed a makeup product that fit her modern millenial lifestyle, so she decided to create the solution herself. Now Subtl Beauty is based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where we’ve been thriving and growing since 2018.

Fun Fact: Each of our concealer shades are named after the unique neighborhoods that make up the city of Pittsburgh.
