Daily Inspiration: Meet Elyahna Burgos

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elyahna Burgos.

Hi Elyahna, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started my journey in 2015. I have vitiligo around my left eye, and ever since I was little I was bullied and it made me self-conscious having it. Until I started doing makeup, at first the mission was to cover up my birthmark and then I ended up falling in love with the art of creating a vision on a blank canvas (the face). I then started helping others feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin. From there on, I expanded my services and have created a small business that my clients feel safe, comfortable and beautiful in their own skin when they come to me. I only aspire to be a positive influence on anyone I come across.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I was very discouraged at first and when I actually wanted to be serious about pursuing my business, my family didn’t necessarily support it. It was always “why are you buying so much makeup” until they seen how serious I was and a year later, they started supporting my journey once they seen that I had clientele. From then and on, I’ve had some ups and downs with traffic but it’s always a good learning experience to learn ways to attract the clientele meant for me.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m a licensed esthetician, Certified lash technician and a professional makeup artist. I specialize in all three categories but as an esthetician, I specialize in facials. My facials are gentle and I’ve been told that I have very soothing hands, delicacy. As a Certified lash technician, I specialize in natural appearance lashes. To enhance your eye shapes and eyes. As a makeup artist, I specialize in a skin like finish for foundation, I believe that the skin should show through and not be altered to cover your beauty. Full coverage but lightweight to the face. I’m most proud of my makeup artistry and perfecting the skin like finish to every look.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
Being kind with a big heart. Being genuine with everyone and treating everyone with respect and show love always.
