Welcome to our first blog post! I never knew how hard it was to open up to the world about who I am. Well, let's get to it.
My name is Jasmine Hawkins, I am the Founder and CEO of Janel Cosmetics. I am currently 27 years old, I have 4 kids and a husband who I have been married to for 9 years (my high school sweetheart).
As a teen, I grew up being told that I was ugly and my skin tone was as well ugly. Unfortunately, I took this into my adulthood which did havoc on my self-esteem. It wasn't until I learned how to do makeup that I was able to rebuild myself and see that my skin and I was beautiful.
After 6 years of doing makeup, I knew that I wanted to give back and help others feel beautiful and to enhance it for themselves and for the world. Makeup is just another form of art and it's truly amazing what can come from just a few colors. Then one day, God placed on my heart Janel Cosmetics. I would have never thought of creating a cosmetic line, I mean I was obsessed makeup but enough to make a company? We all know when God creates a road we have to follow it through wholeheartedly. I love my new baby and this journey has been nothing but a learning experience as well as a joyful process.
I hope this sheds a little light on who I am. I'll be live on Sunday, July 15, 2018, at 3 pm EST to which I will share a little more about myself and Janel Cosmetics with a little slayage. I hope to see you there.
