I've been helping black women bring back the glow for over 12 years.
I started my own mineral cosmetics line "Nique Cosmetics/Lady Minerals" back in 2009, helping women of color in their 40's and 50's find their perfect foundation shade.
I had some successes but couldn't get it off the ground. I still make it for my OG customers though, and of course for myself.
And yes, you read that right...I MAKE IT.
Women would come to me because they wanted to cover and camouflage their skin while maintaining a youthful appearance. But what I saw was a lack of a good skincare regimen. Most of the time, if they'd upgrade their skincare, I knew their skin would improve 100-fold.
I also knew that this was easier said than done because the product options were non-existent.
But creating a skincare line seemed as possible as going to the moon. So, I never pursued it.
Fast forward 10 years later, I'm a Beauty Advisor for a major department store and little has changed.
Sun People Beauty has created a full-circle moment for me, as I have dreamed of this FOR YEARS. I've accomplished something that I believe was possible...and I LOVE doing it. I cannot wait to show you all that I have in store...I have so many ideas.
And so, I thank you...thank you for taking the time to read this long a** bio page and for supporting my dream.
P.S that mineral foundation line will be relaunched this summer!
