Hey there, I'm Jentri, and I help women over 40 restore their skin.
MORE THAN JUST A BEAUTY BRAND.
My two siblings and I were raised by a single mom who worked full time as a cosmetologist. Her beauty shop was attached to our 100-year-old Sears & Roebuck kit home.
Most of her clients were over 60, so from an early age she taught us how to answer the phone politely and say 'yes and no, ma'am (which I still do to this day).'
Growing up, I’d often hear customers repeat the same stories over and over again to my mom, and it never seemed to phase her. I didn’t know what magic she used with them other than she talked louder and repeated herself a lot. All I knew was that they always left our house happier than when they arrived.
In 1997 our family home burned down, so my mom began doing her beauty work in a retirement community where she often provided services to elderly women who would scream obscenities at her because they had diseases like dementia. By this time, I had a better understanding of her magic; her ability to have empathy, tolerance, and understanding. These qualities in my mom always made her customers feel seen and heard.
When I decided to start my beauty business about 25 years ago, I didn't realize all of the responsibilities it would eventually come with. You see, I didn't set out to specifically treat women with skin conditions and diseases -- but they chose me, and I listened. Like my mom listened to her customers.
Learning from brave survivors and warriors over the years, hearing their stories and witnessing their deep reserves of strength have given me a certain type of fulfillment I could never find from just making 'beauty products.'
To this day, whenever I give an esthetic service or someone uses one of my beauty products (maybe that's you!) my hope is that you'll feel special, cared for and seen the way my mom made everyone around her feel.
My partner, Alex and I have gone from working in our brick and mortar store together in Austin, TX to spending the majority of our time serving you online with our line of restorative JQ beauty products. We have no plans of slowing down.
What makes Jentri Quinn Makeup + Skin different?
We're committed to serving you with high quality restorative formulas that deliver real results.
Since 'clean beauty' is often misused as a marketing term, in addition to being unregulated with different guidelines and meanings, (depending on who you ask) we decided to set our own thoughtful standards that you can rely on.
Our high quality ingredients are carefully selected to help improve your dry, devitalized, dull skin. Our restorative formulas are cruelty-free (we never test on animals), non-GMO and organic, whenever possible. Most of our cosmetics are also EU Registered for stricter safety standards and many of our skincare items have undergone clinical testing for customer satisfaction.
JQ skincare is formulated with mature, sensitive skin in mind and without the use of potentially disruptive chemicals like phthalates and controversial ingredients, like parabens.
We infuse many of our key skincare items with raw Olive Oil, thanks to our family in Italy.
We believe that the benefits of our cold pressed olive oil are superior to many other oils because we know exactly when and where it's sourced. EVOO is essential in helping you prevent water loss, especially after the age of 40 when your oil production slows down.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT US
I've always been multi-passionate. In addition to makeup and skincare, I also love animals, writing, filmmaking, and all things wellness.
Since 2015, I've transitioned from being a freelance makeup artist and a full-time esthetician to co-owning my own brick and mortar store with my partner, Alex, and creating my own restorative beauty brand.
Since 2020, we've been focusing on serving our beauty community remotely through educational videos online.
Me and my partner, Alex, donate a portion of our time and event proceeds from our business, Jentri Quinn Makeup + Skin, to non-profits, independent organizations and charities year-round, like Beautifully Loved, who are dedicated to improving the lives of families and children with diseases.
Remember, the more you know, the more you GLOW!
With love and appreciation,
