Gabriela Goldberg-Kosinski ’12 says that no job has been as rewarding as becoming an entrepreneur.
On December 28, 2020, she launched the website for her new cosmetics business, B • LIVELY BEAUTY. It can be found at www.blivelybeauty.com
Kosinski majored in Biology with a double minor in Chemistry and Psychology. She recently returned to her alma mater as an adjunct, teaching Microbiology lab classes. She’s run the gamut of careers from retail to research.
But through it all, she never forgot her dream to open her own business.
Combining her Mount education, her Master’s degree from New York Medical College, and her experience in the beauty industry, Kosinski created her own clean, vegan, and cruelty free cosmetic brand that is rooted in philanthropy. She makes all the products herself and adheres to both US and European chemical standards.
For every product purchased from B • LIVELY, Kosinski donates either money or her cosmetics to those in need, including local and national organizations.
“The idea of giving back is what started the brand, and it excites me so much to be able to do that,” Kosinski said.
The Mount is what gave her the foundation to become successful, she said, crediting the Natural Sciences department with molding her into the business owner she is today.
