MILA Beauty was created for us, by us. With your beauty, in our care. MILA Beauty was established in Austin, Texas in 2020 by two sisters. The story of Melissa LaRae and Ishia Lynette Adams (MILA) starts in El Paso, Texas born to a Black father and Mexican mother. Identifying as Afrolatina we knew long before we acknowledged it, what it felt like to not have a space to be comfortable and free.
The beauty industry is so complex. It's often imitated but hardly credited, and we are often forced to spend our dollars in spaces where we aren't welcomed.
This is why MILA Beauty was created. Not only are we creating a space for all to feel nurtured, catered, and understood, we are creating channels to bring beauty together.
