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.

The nude is called NUNA or Nu-na, the word for land in Inuktitut the language of the Inuit people. Today that land is the Great North. It’s a pink nude with taupe undertones.
The red is called MAKOC or mah-koh-chay, is the word for land in Lakota the Siouan language. Today the Sioux People live in South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska, also known as Standing Rock. This shade is the perfect oxblood red.
The brown is called OOXOR or o-hor the word for land or earth in the Gabrielino or the language of the TONGVA people, today that land is called Los Angeles. We love this 90’s brown!
