Zhenia Cosmetics is a dream made for reality. To feel beautiful inside and out; is a must in today's demanding society.
A sixteen year old entrepreneur who aspires to be successful in the beauty world. However, I need funds. Funds that I can use to contact a cosmetic laboratory for the production of my products.
I am a Singaporean-Filipino and my main customers are my fellow Asian beauties, but I will gladly cater to the needs of other people. I happen to be the only girl in my family and growing up; I was a tomboy. I loved to get dirty and play roughly, but I was always drawn to the way my mom put on makeup, dresses, or even how she wore her heels. I used to get her heels actually, and imagined I was walking down a runway in my room. Soon I was not only getting her heels, but her makeup too! From Mac to Maybelline, you name it; I took it.
I started to take makeup seriously when I started homeschooling. I had time to go online and watched countless YouTube videos on how to create the perfect smokey eye or watching the best way to put on eyeliner for hooded eyes. I was obsessed. For the next few months, I was tuning in to Jaclyn Hill and MannyMUA videos. I loved the way they expressed themselves in the form of makeup. I still do.
Troubling times came onto my family and I had to do what I can for our well-being. I started selling food and tutored some kids so my family can get by. I started an online makeup store in the Philippines but, was not successful due to the time and management it took me. I was not happy with my online store because, the quality of the product was not worth it. Ali Express and Ebay, never ever doing that again.
After a while, I decided to make an Instagram beauty page. It was there; where I learned to love the authentic makeup products Instagram produces. My page @ZheniaCosmetics was born on February 14, 2017. At that time, I knew I wanted to do something for my family. I wanted to give back to my parents for all their handwork that they have done for my brothers and I.
It was then that I had the idea of starting my own cosmetics line. I then to talked to my mother of my dream and she suggested that I look for a lab and a chemist to help me. Of course, she helped find the perfect lab but, I need money.
I got the idea of Zhenia cosmetics from my dad. He suggested that I use my first name as my brand name. My first product that I would love to launch is a liquid lipstick line. My products will be named after places around the world, especially Asia.
Thank you for your time and I hope you can make this dream into a reality.
