I launched Amara Lashes in September 2018, not only for my love of lashes (I've been wearing lashes for about 17 years), but to create a business for myself, doing something that I love, while taking care of the needs of my children. At that time, my daughter was receiving speech and occupational therapy. I was working for a corporate company that was giving me a difficult time when requesting leave to take her to her appointments. At times, I was told that my absence would be leave without pay. After completing my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology, I took a giant leap of faith... and said goodbye to my corporate career in October 2018!
In 2019, when the former lead makeup artist of the hit television show 'BLACKISH' emailed me back requesting for Amara Lashes to be mailed to Los Angeles, at ABC network (after reviewing samples) I was OVERJOYED! This is one of the many opportunities that Amara Lashes has been apart of! It fills my heart with so much happiness seeing Amara Lashes on our customers everyday. It's UNREAL. I am so inspired by you all!!!
