THE SIXES

 

Jacqueline Carrington decided to create her line of nail lacquers designed specifically to compliment women of color’s skin tones; after her daughter took an interest in nail polish. The brand’s vegan, cruelty free polishes come in a range of nudes, as well as bright shades like lime and orange.

Finally, a line of sunscreens are specifically made for darker skin tones, Unsun, founded by Katonya Breaux, is one of the few sun protection brands founded by a Black woman. This came expert-recommended as one of the best tinted mineral formulas out there that works for a wide range of skin tones.

Brooklyn-bred Franci Girard was five-foot-ten by the time she hit fourth grade. So this brand was born out of a very real and longtime struggle to create actually stylish clothing for tall women (five-seven and over). The line launched in 2019 with all types of pants, jeans, leggings, palazzos that are extremely flattering.

BROOKLYN TEA

 

THE SIP

 

This little tea shop in Bed–Stuy is run by a couple: Ali is a tea sommelier who can laugh at the fact that there’s such a thing as a tea sommelier, and Jamila has a background in teaching that’s apparent in her constant positivity and patience in explaining tea to clueless skeptics like me. Their shop, tea, and brand exude the couple's warmth in every aspect of the store, including the other customers. 

Founders Erica Davis and Catherine Carter created The Sip, a membership-based Champagne brand only offering high-end sparkling wines, to bring diversity into the world of Champagne. By subscribing, you’ll receive bi-monthly boxes of mini bottles of sparkling wines. And do we really need another reason to drink more? No, but this brand certainly gives us every reason to!

SunBloq founder Alexis Hood, for years has made it a priority to protect her face from harmful Sun Exposure and UV’s.

Living in Southern California those activities without protection can be so dangerous for your skin. Alexis, determined to find an outdoor enthusiasts solution to protecting her skin began designing The SunBloq UV Shield.
