We had the good fortune of connecting with Juanita Vasquez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Juanita, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to provide a fun, safe environment for my followers to interact with each other & enjoy makeup as much as I do.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what sets me apart from others is that I like to add my own twist to things. Everyone has that one thing that makes themselves, them. I’m most excited about expanding my cosmetic line. I currently have a cosmetic line with my own lashes & I will be adding more products to my brand by the end of this year & beginning of next. Hard work, determination & faith is what really helped me get to where I currently am. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m getting closer & closer each day. No, it wasn’t easy at all. But I didn’t give up no matter how many times I wanted to. I learned to persevere though all the challenges I faced. My faith & the support from my loved ones is what really kept Me going despite the issues I faced. I’ve learned that not everyone is going to be happy for you nor support you, but that’s okay. You just have to learn to keep on going through it all. I want anyone & everyone to know that they are capable of doing anything they set their minds to & more. The sky is the limit. So reach for the stars.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would have to say God before anyone else. I owe all my success to him because without him, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Secondly, it would have to be my boyfriend, Johnathan. He persuaded me to take the step to do my business & create my page. He is one of my biggest supporters.
