Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
When I started in the cosmetics industry a little over eleven years ago, my journey was all ordained by my creator. It has been a colorful journey full of ups and downs, but by faith is what has kept me going. I have been placed in the right places, at the right times to meet people that have paved the way for me to succeed. And I am so grateful for this path of greatness and excellence that I am on.

Please tell us about Eyes By Erica.
When I started EyesByErica, I had nine years of cosmetics management experience on my resume! But I had a BIGGER vision to start my own freelance company! I had nothing by faith and prayers, and the connections that I made throughout the years as the foundation of my company. Now, I am one of the most sought-after makeup artists in the greater DFW area. And I so excited for what the future holds for EyesByErica.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would have started EyesByErica way sooner than I did. I was too caught up in EGO and FEAR of failure to start before… But I glad that I did muster up the courage to step out on faith and follow my dreams.
