Co-founder & CEO @ Paperstack.

Meet Alicia Scott, Founder of Range Beauty.


Real beauty isn’t all flawless faces and porcelain noses. It has range. For me, that includes acne and eczema flare-ups at any moment’s notice. For you, it may be psoriasis, rosacea or just extra-sensitive dry skin that doesn’t play well with most mainstream makeup formulas on the market. Our skin is ultra-reactive. Ultra-unique. And ultra-beautiful.

I created Range Beauty to help you express your melanin-rich beauty through makeup, even in the midst of a breakout.

With gentle ingredients proven to soothe and heal your skin, like calendula, chamomile, green tea, and French clay, you won’t have to wait until “things calm down” to put on a face. Now, you can wear it proudly - any and every day.

Just like you deserve because #RealSkinHasRange.

Love, Alicia

"First and foremost as a Black woman founder navigating scaling my business with historically limited access to capital, it’s amazing to see another woman changing this narrative. It’s been so great being a part of the Paperstack portfolio. Not just because of the extra capital, but also the hands-on support from Assel and team. They’ve held fireside chats with industry experts for us and Ivan has armed me with my own personal library of supplier and investor contacts. The funding was a great bridge for us to work on increasing brand awareness and cover our overhead including our warehouse rent. We used the funds to improve PR packaging and increased our team of ambassadors from 8 to 40 within one month. Paperstack is truly working to stand out from other providers through the resources they provide, an intuitive dashboard, and feasible fees for small businesses.” — Alicia Scott, Founder & CEO, Range Beauty."
