Our founder began her beauty career as a licensed cosmetologist in Madison, Wisconsin. Her passion for skincare and cosmetics led her through a professional journey in retail cosmetics, then to high end salons and spas, and now to her current role as a Professional Makeup Artist and Creative Director of Marie Hunter Beauty. KéNisha Ruff isn’t just another lipstick aficionado; she’s an expert in the entire process of cosmetics formulation - from product development to package design. This explains why when launching Marie Hunter Beauty, she spent five years traveling the world to identify the best and most ethical cosmetic laboratories fit for the creation of her beauty brainchild. Today, those same laboratories that produce MHB’s cult favorite lipsticks like Boss Lady and sought-after fragrances like Prosecco are the same factories whose artisans and scientists produce the products of some of your favorite luxury beauty brands across the world.
100% WOMAN OWNED AND PROUD MEMBER OF THE FFC.
Our Founder KéNisha Ruff is a proud member of Rebecca Minkoff’s Female Founder Collective. Women have the power to change the world. Our purchasing power increases the wealth and opportunities for women-owned businesses and our communities.
We globally and ethically source all of our ingredients and packaging to create products using unique and innovative formulas. Our formulations are clean and effective and backed by science and nature’s most potent ingredients. We boast violet and crimson lips that stay all day, candles with aromas that light up the night, and skincare creams that rival your mother’s tried and true chemicals. Every Marie Hunter Beauty lipstick, candle, cream and fragrance is certified cruelty free and vegan. We call that non-compromise of safety and sassiness, “Real Innovation.”
If there’s one thing that wakes us up every morning, it’s the belief that beauty should be simple and not complicated. Our mission is to boldly empower women like you with the beauty, confidence and class to feel like the best version of yourself on the inside and outside. For us at Marie Hunter Beauty, that’s where real beauty begins. Our iconic packaging and statement-making modern collections are designed to help you discover and walk in that reflection. We’re just here to help you Be Bolder™ as you do it.
OUR CORE VALUES
ETHICS COME FIRST.
Acting responsibly and caring for our environment translates into how we develop our products at Marie Hunter Beauty. We pride ourselves on using green chemistry to discover new ways of pushing the envelope of innovation in the clean beauty industry.
BEAUTY SHOULD BE SIMPLE.
Looking and feeling your best doesn’t have to come with a complicated routine. At MHB, we believe that beauty should be simple. For us, starting our day means taking small steps like the ignite of a candle, spritz of perfume, or single swipe of lipstick to make a statement, without ever saying a thing. After all, cosmetics aren’t the main event; we are.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE MATTERS MOST.
We’re challenging the stigma and raising awareness around mental health issues within our community. With that in mind, we donate a portion of our proceeds to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Your product purchase enables ADAA to continue their mission of promoting the prevention, treatment, and cure of anxiety, depressive, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma-related disorders through education, practice and research.
