BEAUTY BEHIND THE SCENES WITH KIRSTEN KJÆRWEIS
EVEN THOUGH CLEAN BEAUTY IS REALLY BECOMING A BIG THING TODAY, IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR FEW YEARS. KIRSTEN KJÆR WEIS IS A DANISH BORN MAKEUP ARTIST AND THE PIONEER OF ORGANIC, LUXURY MAKEUP LINE KJAER WEIS THAT LAUNCHED ALMOST 10 YEARS AGO.. BUT WHO IS THIS DANISH NATIVE?
Kirsten has had her work appear in the most renowned fashion magazines, like Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire to name a few and has been the in-demand makeup artist around the world for clean, natural makeup looks. During her journey she realised that people were sacrificing the health of their skin by using irritating, synthetic makeup and the natural products that were on the market at the time were not performing as well as the luxury makeup products, she was used to working with.
Growing up in Scandinavia and in a conscious environment, this seemed wrong for Kirsten, and she decided to do things right, leading the movement with high-performing, sustainable and organic, luxury makeup. Her beautiful makeup line consists of everything you would ever need to create a gorgeous, natural looking skin, without compromising on the luxury. Not only do they use ingredients that work, but all of the ingredients are also Certified Natural or Certified Organic, which mean that the makeup works with your skin, not against it.
Besides her consciously created products, lets find out what else she uses, and what beauty really means to her.
