This partnership is something that both Christi Belcourt and Cheekbone Beauty could not be more excited about.
Christi’s beautiful painting titled This Painting is a Mirror — which aims to reflect to the viewer all the beauty that is already within them — and Cheekbone Beauty’s goal of helping Indigenous youth feel seen and represented are in perfect synergy.
