Like its wildly colourful and creative products, Hank & Henry is making a loud bang in the industry right now. The brand by Henry Vasquez is all about being bold and fearlessly true to yourself through makeup.
Henry took his first steps into the makeup world at the age of 19 by working as a YouTuber and a Brand Consultant – slowly and steadily converting his talent into his own personal brand. Through the immaculate packaging and top-tier makeup quality, it wasn’t long before Hank & Henry took became a cult favourite amongst make-up artists and beauty bloggers globally. So, all you aspiring YouTubers and makeup artists, hang in there, your break is just right round the corner.
Fearless in his approach, Henry has a vivid imagination, and it shows instantly through his love for bold colours – and when we say bold, we mean bold. While the name might suggest that this is a show run by two people, this is all Henry – the heart and soul of the business. Hank as he explains his artistic persona, the Ziggy Stardust to his David Bowie.
So what makes Hank & Henry so extra? Let us count the ways
Like Glu, the brand understands the need for clean beauty. All of their products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, it gives a part of its proceeds to non-profit organisations that help animals, people and environment.
Second, their Barn Owl logo. For Henry, the own symbolises unending wisdom and honours his grandmother, Frances Vasquez. Henry holds his grandmother responsible for some of the most important lessons that he’s learnt in life along with the priceless values that she’s instilled in him. Not just a simple logo now, is it?
