Jenn Harper, Founder, Cheekbone Beauty

Cheekbone Beauty is an Indigenous owned and founded, digitally-native, Canadian cosmetics company established in 2016 by Jenn Harper. Cheekbone Beauty was started with the vision of creating high-quality, cruelty free cosmetics that could shine a light on the incredible history of Indigenous culture. Jenn’s goals for Cheekbone Beauty include the desire to be a zero waste company by 2023, but also to give Indigenous youth representation in the beauty industry.

Since inception, Cheekbone Beauty has appeared on Dragons’ Den in 2019 and has donated over $56,000 to a wide variety of causes, making the philanthropic goals of the organization the forefront of their values. “True to our roots, Cheekbone’s definition of success is not based on what you attain for yourself, but instead in what you give back to your community.”
