2019 TOP 5

Nominee in the Lash Educator Category

Mentorship Award

 

"I am fortunate enough to be able to serve women looking to become part of the lash industry, teaching them the art of lashing, helping existing artist up-level their skill set and helping them grow their business.

 

I am a mom to 3 beautiful girls and have an amazing man who supports me 100% in all I do in life. I have a big personality in a goofy, quirky and spontaneous way, I am an addict with anything having to do with personal growth as well as with continuing education within this industry. 

 

Being in the beauty industry since 2001, having built Eye Candy Lash + Brow Boutique and now opening Eye Candy Lash Academy, I have learned and have grown a lot. I am here to share my knowledge and experience. Helping women to be able to build + create a life where they can financially take care of themselves is the stage of where I am at in my life. Let's learn share and grow together!"
