Meet Lakiesha Hicks of Eye Candi Bar in Mesquite

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lakiesha Hicks.

Lakiesha, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
It has always been a dream of mine, to start my own Cosmetic line, I would always find myself playing in makeup and jewelry. This journey wasn’t easy for me it took a lot of late nights and early mornings. I just made it look like it was easy. I planned and prepared day and night on every aspect of details involved with Eye Candi Bar, for a year before launching. I am where I am today, due to hard work and dedication. Pushing myself to continue to step on faith, while building an empowering brand for women.

Great, 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?
No, nothing great comes easy. In any business you will always inquire up and downs. I have had my fair share of challenges, but each challenge has been a lesson learned for me, I was able to improve myself as an owner and business goals. So, in a way, I am thankful for the challenges.

We’d love to hear more about your business.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from my childhood was playing dress-up. I was a Fashionable person at a young age.
