Founded by Danish-born makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis living in New York City, Kjaer Weis fuses together a minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic with that unapologetic NYC spirit, creating a makeup that is as beautiful on your skin as it is to hold in it’s uniquely designed luxury and sustainable case. They are two things that we usually compromise for in beauty, but Kirsten knows how to celebrate the seeming opposites in life. “Scandinavia has a calmness, a minimalism. New York City is fierce.” She says, “They seem like they are so different but they can work together. Kjaer Weis is both. A trailblazer, merging these two worlds of luxury and sustainability without compromise. We are making the new norm.”
Ingredients That Work
Whether it’s developing a lip color based off the hue of an old tee-shirt or personally inspecting each new batch for consistency in color and texture, Kjaer Weis ensures that not only are all Kjaer Weis ingredients Certified Natural or Certified Organic, but that they always reach the standards of luxury beauty. That means makeup that really works and works with your skin, not against it.
Beauty That Keeps on Giving
Just having an ecologically and health conscious product is not enough. When designing their sustainable packaging, Kirsten wanted something that looked and felt luxurious, not just another thing to discard. Award-winning creative director Marc Atlan did just that, creating an architecturally stunning bold, metal compact that can be easily refilled with your favorite KW product. The metal, inscribed with white enamel “KW” logos, are housed in a red lacquer, grain-textured cases similar to jewelry boxes.
Like a true relic, these compacts holds weight and will last – the perfect embodiment of how beauty, luxury and sustainability can coexist.
