A Brand Making Self-Care Fun and Accessible

 Welcome to the MLC Family! 

At Mary Louise Cosmetics, we believe that everyone should have easy access to wholesome, natural, and organic beauty products. My grandmothers Mary (maternal), and Louise (paternal) are the inspiration behind our mission and everyday we aim to channel their fun loving and playful spirits through our work. 

I've always been obsessed with natural beauty products and would often make them for myself. I started  Mary Louise Cosmetics in my dorm room at Howard University in 2017. I was a premed major and instead of doing Chemistry homework in my dorm, I was creating  face masks instead! Mississippi Mud was the first product I shared with my floor mates and was shocked when they told me that they weren't just using it as a face mask...but as a body polish as well! This feedback inspired me to create a line of dynamic and multi-use products that give people the freedom to experience beauty and self-care on their terms. 

I'm so thrilled that you get to be apart of this journey with me. If you have any questions (or just want to say hi) can reach us at
