About The Founder

Hi, I’m Markeeta!

Throughout my childhood, I struggled with a lack of confidence and self-esteem and I found that a swipe of bright color across my lips gave me a temporary boost. Sort of “fake it till you make it” energy. As an adult, I suffered from bouts of severe anxiety and depression. While the pain was far greater than my childhood stresses, I found myself again reaching for those pinks and reds. Lipstick couldn’t heal my depression, but it could give me the little boost I needed to keep going.

Bright reds made me feel stronger. Hot pinks made me feel bolder. Oranges gave me the sass and sparkle that had buried themselves deep within me. I discovered that how I showed up to the world impacted how I showed up for myself. Slowly but surely, I allowed those colors to seep into my skin and become a part of me - so I’m never really without my favorite confidence boosters.

I created Kourageous Kosmetics because I wanted to empower women to define and embrace their own idea of beauty. Because that’s what real self-love and acceptance feel like. And when you truly love yourself - ALL of yourself - you can take on the world.

Couldn't your morning makeup routine use a heavy dose of sparkle and self-love.
