Makeup is about so much more than just playing dress up, and nobody knows that more than Francine Behati. After escaping civil war in her home country of the Congo, she lived as a refugee in Uganda, and faced discrimination and bullying due to her family’s situation. After coming to Canada, Francine eventually founded Queenfidence, named so to “empower and inspire everyone that beauty starts from within and can be enhanced with makeup.” The cruelty-free and vegan line boasts affordable but high quality products for all makeup lovers, inclusive of gender and skin tones. —Josephine Cruz
