"There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise."
It is amazing to think that there is an increasing amount of female-founded businesses from a variety of industries. You can find them on Forbes, billboards, magazines, and more. This just shows that the community of women are being recognized for their work ethics as the decades go by. In honor of Women's History Month, Beautyque is dedicating this blog post to female entrepreneurs who have changed the game within the beauty industry.
Here at Beautyque, we stand for women's empowerment. Our goal is to gather influential and like-minded businesswomen to join our team so that we could bring a spotlight on what they've achieved. Many of the ownerships for the indie brands that we work with are females who embarked on a vision that would make a difference in cosmetics.
Sue Katz and Lisa Thurman wanted to implement a diverse aspect to their cosmetic line by catering to all ages of makeup fanatics.

They believe that less is more, therefore, using a formulation that would enhance one's beauty while still letting one's natural aura peek through.

Not only does she bring business to the table, but she is also an advocate which led her to create #SpeakYourSexy as a way to give people a voice on the topic of empowerment.

The definition of a "girl boss" is not just the act of running your own business. It is the positive influence you project towards other women of the world. It is the effort of fighting through societal issues that women face. It is the notion of supporting the voice of women and their power to make an impact in the world. It is the way you gracefully embrace your true self.
