WHEN DESPAIR BREEDS
Can't find your perfect nude shade? You're not alone.
I created the Brown Skin Essentials line a few years ago to solve a major issue I was facing as a woman of color. After hunting for a reasonably priced pair of skin tone tights in the United Kingdom, I found there were no real options despite living in a diverse country. I knew I couldn't be alone, and so my business idea came to fruition.
Before setting out to launch the brand, I wanted to make sure that I was creating high quality offerings that were also gender inclusive. One of my dear friends was a closeted gay man from Toronto, and he felt liberated to be himself in New York, where we were both studying roughly a decade ago. We spent time at night clubs in the city, where I came across gorgeous drag queens and femme fatales of all identities. They made me realize that hair, make up, skin care and accessories products needed to exist for everyone as the consumers were so varied.
'Why the name Brown Skin Essentials?' you may ask. We are all different shades of brown - from very light to dark. And all are equally beautiful.
This business is my true passion, and I am deeply committed to bringing to market quality, affordable items that suit the needs of all shapes, sizes and hues. The brand and its offering is growing day by day, so please stay in touch.
Thank you for supporting me and the rest of the team on this journey!
