Kjær Weis is a visionary and forward thinking cosmetics line created by Danish-born, New York-based makeup artist Kirsten Kjær Weis. It’s a brand that recognizes health and beauty equally.
A veteran of countless magazine covers and fashion shoots, Kirsten noticed something about every woman that sat in her makeup chair: they all had at least a few “conventional” makeup products they found irritating to the skin. “It made me think, if these products are causing short term effects like breakouts and rashes, then what would the long term effects look like? There had to be another choice.”
When experimenting with natural alternatives, Kirsten found many of the organic makeup products couldn’t achieve the same results as their chemical-laden, traditional counterparts. There seemed to be no middle ground between the two in the cosmetics marketplace.
This was the divide Kirsten looked to bridge when she began an 8 year journey to develop Kjær Weis; to fulfill a desire and demand for high-performance color cosmetics that were made with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients, all without compromising luxury or contemporary design.
