IMAN Cosmetics and LatinasWhoLaunch came together to host the event “Beauty and Business Luncheon”on April 11, 2015 at the Downtown Club in Houston Texas. This event was created for Latinas to empower themselves, feel beautiful, and be successful as business women; I felt so honored to be invited as a press guest to this event!
IMAN cosmetics were advertising their new luxury eye shadow pencils by giving make overs and teaching us that “Beauty is your Business”. There were so many lovely products on display from foundations to blushes. IMAN cosmetics offers great quality! Honestly, I couldn’t get enough of the make up, you guys know I love eye products and their eyeshadow is just to die for! There are so many sexy shades, my favorites are Desire and Seduction. If you guys want to check out some IMAN cosmetics, I will link you guys to their website HERE.
The Event had so many great things! A photo booth with dorky props. and some delicious food.
As a young Latina with big dreams, it was nice to feel empowered and motivated by many people who were there with motivational stories. My favorite speech ” Your Dream is your Platform” was from Alma Alvarez, also known as Miss Houston Latina.
She spoke about self-esteem, loving yourself, and working hard for what you believe in. I recorded her speech and you can listen to it here.
I stand here living proof that if you set your heart on something, it can happen!
Natalie Velasquez with Paychex, had a speech about the importance of financial security in business women. Paychex is a company that helps you run your business financially online; it’s really great for small businesses. There were many Paychex representatives in the event sharing information and having fun!
The last speaker was Eddie Rodriguez, representing Inca Kola. There was the inspirational story of founder Elizabeth Berman titled “Latinas Think Big” who says there’s nothing better than investing in your community. Her hard work is very inspiring. She shows that Latinas can achieve so much, even become entrepreneurs! Eddie also spoke about the product and some fun giveaways being hosted at IncaKolausa.com. Can I just say that this drink is one of the best drinks I’ve ever had! I promise you won’t regret trying it!
