IMG_0637 copydunkle authentic is a handcrafted makeup label designed for the quality obsessed, style-driven, & curious gal…

founder & makeup artist Molly Dunkle curiously made lip balm for the first time at the age of 12. a slight obsession took over and she continued to explore the world of cosmetic crafting and artistry with the help of her environmental chemist father.

in 2013, Molly launched dunkle authentic to include a collection of handcrafted professional products while her passion for minimalism keeps the ingredients & products richly curated.

thanks to her family’s love for travel, Molly grew up sharing time between both the USA and Australia. these adventures have since inspired the colour collection, including lipsticks and lip glosses each named after beloved places she visited, while the foundation collection showcases a full range of skin tones from around the world.
