Let's Talk About Jacquie Cosmetics
Okay, so I talk a lot about lady bosses and inspiring women, but this girl is something else entirely. Jacquie Kuntze is a dynamite entrepreneur who works harder than most people I know. Jacquie is the founder and lady boss behind Jacquie Cosmetics.
On July 1st of this year, Jacquie Cosmetics was officially born. This brand of luxury makeup is beauty with a conscience. All of her makeup is ethically sourced, vegan, and paraben free. Right now, she has a selection of liquid lipsticks and a translucent power. While I haven't had a chance to try out the power, I can whole heartily say that I LOVE her lipsticks. These lippies stay on all day and have very minimal transfer. I have a powder coming in the mail and will update you guys with how much I love it! She's recently launched her own line of concealers as well! These concealers are the newest additions to her line-up.
So hear me out, for less than the cost of most liquid lips at Sephora, you can buy a Canadian-made, cruelty-free, lipstick that supports a local artist.
Now enough about makeup, I want to talk about Jacquie herself. This girl is the human form of sunshine. I had the privilege of having a creative conversation with her over coffee, and this small moment brought on so much success. We've collaborated on many shoots together now (she even did the makeup for my first ever collection), and I am so pleased to call her a friend. Jacquie is passionate, kind, hard-working, and just all around amazing. While she's not creating her own makeup, she spends her time as a working makeup artist and full-time university student. This is exactly what I mean when I say that this girl does EVERYTHING. She is my entrepreneurial role model, 100%.
Here are two photos of her work from her Instagram (also you should totally follow her).
I can't wait to see what's next for Jacquie and her cosmetics line. I wish nothing but success for this lady and I'm so thankful to have her in my life.
