What made you start your business? 

1. I always wanted to wear false lashes but could not master the application technique and I didn’t want to invest in lash extensions. When I saw how easy the Magnetic liner & lash was to apply on Facebook,  I decided to try it. I applied the liner & Magnetic lash in 5 mins. I was blown away because it did not harm my natural lash, they stayed on all day, and I was able to wear my initial lash 36 times! 

2. I believe that each person should feel good about themselves inside & out. It’s amazing how much a difference a lash makes. It brightens up your mood, boosts your confidence while enhancing your beauty. 

3. The fact that our lashes are high quality, range from very conservative to longer full-lengths is one reason why I said yes. 

How does it empower you as a Black Woman in the Beauty Field? 

I’m empowered when other people on our team, The Magnetic Dynasty, are empowered. Especially when they achieve their goals, wear our products for the first time, able to make enough additional income to pay their mortgage, put money away in savings, or simply doing something for themselves that was made possible because of the business. We have over 400 Affiliates on our team nationwide. As their leader, I encourage them to always have a Builders mindset. We believe in building people to build hope and build wealth. I have 30+ plus years of experience in women’s empowerment. I’ve always had the heart to see other women win! The reason why I continue to persevere to build this beauty brand is to help me invest in my own healing home for women. 

What are 3 of your favorite beauty items you can’t live without? 

1. Cranberry Velvet Kisses 2. Selfie Magnetic lash 3. Black Classic liner 

Anything else our beauty readers should know about you? 

I’m excited about how our company is evolving in the beauty industry and we are only 2 yrs old. Our flagship products are Magnetic liner & lashes, however, we have launched lip stains, foundation, highly pigmented eye shadows, and more! I can’t believe I have an entire lash wardrobe now, lol. I’m passionate about our mission of creating a culture for women to win regardless of their race, education level, experience, etc. My goal is to empower 1,000 men & women by December 31, 2021.
