How we started
Amara Lashes continues to grow and expand nationwide! Thank you for your support - posting on social media, engaging with our photos, sharing with friends and family, and sending us encouraging words! Your support and prayers means so much! I'm incredibly thankful every single day!
I launched Amara Lashes in 2018, not only for my love of luxury lashes (I've been wearing lashes for about 17 years, and it's the one beauty product that I can't live without) but to provide myself the ability to earn a living doing something that I love, while taking care of the needs of my children. At the time, my daughter Khloe was receiving speech and occupational therapy. My previous position did not give me the flexibility to care for my daughter's needs. It felt like a never ending battle, trying to request for time off, being told I would not get paid for time away from work, it was very draining. It was frustrating, and I felt totally defeated. After completing my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology, I launched Amara Lashes in September 2018. A month later, I said goodbye to my clinical career!
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! It never gets old seeing Amara Lashes on our customers, it's so special, and we feel so inspired by you all everyday!
