Founded in 2013, dunkle authentic is the brainchild of Molly Dunkle, a longtime advocate for embracing natural beauty and self-care. With the help of her father, an environmental chemist, Molly spent her teendom whipping up batches of her own lip balms and make up, eventually following a career as a make up artist. Now, Molly has opened her first studio on California Lane, where she hand makes a range of feel-good makeup and skincare.
dunkle authentic offers a curated collection of lipsticks, foundation and skincare products made with natural products sourced for their quality, so you know it’s worth shelling out those few extra dollars. But don’t go running to the Valley just yet–the studio is only open on select days, so jump on the brand’s Instagram to find out when you can check it all out. Better yet, head to their website for a deep-dive into each product, or just stop by the window into the studio in California Lane in the hopes of catching Molly at work.
