As an entrepreneur, I understand that it is vital to have extended avenues of revenue coming in. My company started off as a small service-based business. I've never been the kind of sales person to sell something just to sell something. I have to BELIEVE in it. When I value something, I want to share this gift with everyone. I value my skin. Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It's the first thing we see when we look at someone.
I'm 30 years old now and wow did that happen quick! I found a love for modeling and performance arts in my early 20's. I spent the last 2 years constantly in the spotlight while working in the film and entertainment industry, when something happened... my beautiful skin started to break out! I started noticing my imperfections. Wrinkles were beginning to spread. I noticed blemishes and acne, OH no! I thought to myself "It's time" I needed a natural solution.
I began my mineral makeup journey through a hair client of mine. He specializes in Chinese medicine. Every month I'd show up to his wellness shop. Typically, we would sit and drink tea and talk about herbs, acupuncture, and energy meridians. Then, I would set up for our hair appointment. When I was all finished with his appointment, he would pay and often times he would tip me with his hand-made makeup. After a few months I had experimented with a lot of his makeup, but I wanted to know more. I wanted to learn how it was made. I wanted to make the switch. My skin was screaming for a change and I knew I was on to something magnificent.
It's been many moons now since I have made the switch. I wanted to produce a product line that was 100% natural, safe, hypo-allergenic, derived from the earth and would protect our skin from sun damage. Thus, I created "Lillian Minerals".
