The Brow Guru

Leslie Mendoza, better known as the Brow Guru took her talents of beauty and fortified them into a business. She owns Prime Boudoir a eyebrow and eyelash salon in Whittier and Granada Hills.  

We talked about finding your passion and developing it into a business that works for you. She is truly inspiring in her work and goes to show how unstoppable a dream can be.

She was gracious enough to offer us 20 percent off her online products and $5 off her stain in salon. All by using the Latinx code. 

Follow her on:

Finding la Brujita

My interview with Leah Guerrero, founder and owner of Brujita skin care was nothing short of magical. We talked about her beginnings in skin care and how her company started. During the interview she said something so poignant and I tempt you to ask yourself the same question. How are you important to yourself?
