Hey there, I'm Jentri, and I help women over 40 restore their skin.
To be honest, this journey started in my 20's when I was struggling with acne and feeling overwhelmed and confused about what to do next.
To make matters worse, I was in college full time and heading up the makeup department on an independent film working all hours of the day/night, so I didn't even have time to think about my skin.
Does this sound familiar?
When I finally took the first steps to heal, as you can imagine, the real work began.
So how did I start?
Since I was a little girl, I’ve been around the beauty industry. My mom’s at-home cosmetology business inspired me to pursue an independent career in makeup.
I knew I wanted more 'natural' beauty options but back then, there wasn’t much to choose from.
Before Amazon was the go-to, I ordered a book online about how to make homemade products.
After rolling up my sleeves in the kitchen and creating my skincare from scratch, I knew this was something I wanted to do.
As you can imagine, making products in your kitchen isn't a sustainable business model, so I decided to get my esthetics license to help women tackle deeper issues.
As a result, I ended up helping myself along the way, too, because I finally had a foundation of proper education when it came to caring for skin.
When my clients came to me with severe acne or undergoing harsh treatments I found myself with an even deeper desire for wanting to help them restore their skin.
When there are skin conditions and diseases involved you can’t just throw anything on your skin.
For the past decade, me and my partner, Alex have gone from working in our brick and mortar store together in Austin, TX to spending the majority of our time serving you here online with our own 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, non-GMO and organic, whenever possible. Most of our cosmetics are also EU Registered for stricter safety standards.
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 from our family farm 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 businesses, Jentri Quinn Makeup + Skin and Cotone Clothing to non-profits, independent organizations and charities year-round, like Beautifully Loved, who are dedicated to improving the lives of families and children.
