We Are Fluide is a mission-driven beauty brand that creates vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free cosmetics designed for all skin shades and gender expressions. We believe that makeup is joyful and fun — as well as powerful and transformative — and nobody should be left out.
Through providing a platform and amplifying the voices of queer and gender expansive identities and through showcasing queer beauty, we hope to inspire others to create their identities on their own terms, opening up possibilities for everyone’s self-expression.
We Are Fluide is based in Brooklyn and is run by a small team of passionate, multi-talented, multi-taskers including:
Laura Kraber, Co-Founder
she/her | @fluidebeauty
Inspired by her experience as a parent of NYC teenagers, Laura founded We Are Fluide to showcase and celebrate gender-expansive beauty and under-represented faces and voices, and to support young people’s self-expression and creativity.
My dream was to create a beautiful and intimate online universe where everyone is comfortable being themselves—to evolve the mainstream conception of ‘beauty’ while creating a space for people to express themselves authentically.

We Are Fluide holds such a special place in my heart as a non-binary makeup lover. Growing up I never thought that I would see a beauty brand truly celebrate people of all backgrounds, shades, and experiences. It means the world to me!

When I’m wearing We Are Fluide I feel like a bad b! I found a place where I could express my creative mind set knowing that it would be accepted. As someone who grew up afraid to express their full potential in art I finally moved to NYC living the dream and joining We Are Fluide was just the icing on the cake. No judgement, non-stop fun and never ending makeup love!

Fluide has taught me that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to do makeup. Makeup is simply a form of self-expression. What’s lovely about Fluide’s products is that they are universal; these products can all be used anywhere with no limits! I love how much Fluide embraces uniqueness and diversity. We strongly believe that there are no rules to beauty, just do whatever feels right.

We Are Fluide has been a gateway for me to express myself in not only my makeup and art but with my entire identity. I found the brand at a point in my life where I didn’t know who I was and being around such amazing and inspiring people allowed me to really find and understand myself. We Are Fluide has pushed me to take risks, responsibility, and has given me a platform and family that I can be honest with. And the makeup is the most fun out there, I might add!

What I love most about We Are Fluide is how welcoming the company is. I have worked closely with the team and have grown to love and appreciate the wonderful people that make up our awesome team. It means a great deal to me to be a part of something that lets people know, especially queer youth, that you are special and you deserve to be who you want to be—so... make up the rules, only you can!
