Jennifer Harper

Jennifer Harper

Founder of Cheekbone Beauty

Passionate about supporting her First Nations community, raising awareness and closing the education gap, Jennifer Harper has built her business around an important cause. Jenn, who originally hails from Thunder Bay before moving to the Niagara region, identified the need for an ethically-designed, Canadian-made cosmetics brand whose mission lies in giving back to the First Nations community. This brand did not exist, so being the visionary she is, Jenn created it! Cheekbone Beauty proudly gives 10% of all profits to the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada.

In addition to Cheekbone’s mission, Jenn strives to educate as many Canadians as possible about the Residential School System and the effects it has had on her family and friends through decades of generational trauma. As a vocal advocate for female entrepreneurs, Jennifer was invited to sit at the table with Prime Minister Trudeau to discuss what women need to be successful.
