Invented by Rachel Vicknair, a global beauty educator / former pro dancer / film / TV talent, Leopara was created to solve a major problem she repeatedly faced when travelling ... bad lighting.

"I was tired of having to sacrifice makeup results and the joy of getting ready when I traveled because of bad lighting. One weekend in Vegas, while sitting on the floor applying makeup under terrible overhead lighting, the idea came to me, and I just knew I had to create this solution." -  Rachel Vicknair, Leopara Founder & CEO

 Having had her makeup done by professional artists for various brand videos, backstage on game days and on numerous film & TV sets, she has experienced the best of the best in professional makeup lighting and makeup techniques and made it her mission to bring this same beauty experience to everyone.

"With Leopara, I've combined professional makeup lighting specs into an affordable, yet high-quality system that changes the game for us makeup-wearers on-the-go."

She left her corporate beauty career in 2016, filed her patent and began her quest to create the world's 1st take-anywhere lighting system that checked all the boxes that other lighting solutions did not. After 2 years of working with lighting professionals, engineers, fellow makeup-wearers and testing rounds of prototypes and system configurations, Leopara is finally traveling the world and changing the travel makeup game for "glamazons" everywhere.
