Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Palomino.
Elizabeth, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Inspiration comes to me when I see potential in a product that can be used by anyone of any age, skin color or skin texture. My name is Elizabeth Palomino and I own a small Latin-owned makeup line called GlitznGlamz Cosmetics. I was once a 15 year old girl who loved colored makeup but due to my age, my mother didn’t like me wearing makeup because she would tell me it would age my skin quickly. So I used to sneak to buy cheap pressed makeup powders and mix them myself to get the colors and products I wanted. I felt like a chemist at 15 years old. I enjoyed creating something myself that also made me feel beautiful and confident. When I became a stay at home mother, I chose to launch my business in hopes that I can help other women with their confidence and wanting to wear vegan cruelty-free makeup. My passion is to bring color and life into my products so who wears GlitznGlamz feels beautiful and empowered. Enhancing skin and color through vegan handmade makeup in luxurious packaging. As a victim of breakouts and rashes due to some cosmetic brands, I chose to keep my ingredients minimal and organic to best suit everyone’s needs. GlitznGlamz is not only a makeup brand but a true experience. My brand offers cosmetics, local shows to meet new customers, makeup services, makeup classes and makeover parties. I hope to bring light into everyone who tries GlitznGlamz so everyone can embrace their uniqueness.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Some struggles on the way have been trending products. Being that I handmade all my products, my creation comes from things I am inspired by at that time or season. However, sometimes I feel as if I reflect too much personally on my products of the things I’m inspired by and others may not be feeling the same way at that time. I’ve learned to balance my personal inspiration with what is currently trending. Staying original is always a challenge. I like my products to be unique in luxurious packaging. I find it sometimes it’s hard to create something that someone hasn’t already tried. Constantly pushing my creativity to best serve the women and artists that have high hopes for GlitznGlamz.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
In local trade shows, I am known for my luxurious brand with a beautiful display to showcase my products. My local clients know me for my makeup services which I provide for events and bridals. Online, I am known for my successful GlitznGlamz makeup line which I’ve maintained for four years. My home life, I am known for being a full-time stay at home mom of two which I dedicate all my time for during the day and work in the middle on the night on my business sometimes I only get 2-3 hours of sleep packaging and working on orders. What sets me apart from others is my ability to persevere through anything whether it’s life or a business challenge. I always make a way and constantly push myself. I am most proud when I can help inspire others and other mothers and women trying to make a way in their success. I take pride in motivating and pushing other artists and women being in the makeup industry or in their self-confidence. I am most likely the goofiest person you can meet, but I love interacting and meeting new people everyday whether it’s online or in person. In life it’s important to stay true to your character and confident in your own skin and what is better than helping others do the same?!
Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
My favorite podcasts are with Joyce Meyer. It’s important to me to stay true to my spirituality and it helps me maintain a clear a fruitful mind. My favorite book has to be Rich Dad Poor Dad which helped me distinguish which category I want to fall in life, it’s also important for me to provide a great future for my children and good upbringing.
