We had the good fortune of connecting with LaShanya/LaCroix Brann and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LaShanya/LaCroix, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
LaShanya and LaCroix two sisters launched Blended Cosmetics in July 2019. We have always had a passion for makeup and something that we bonded over. Blended Cosmetics is a brand that allows women of all shades to express themselves through makeup. All of our products are throughly thought out and vegan, cruelty free. Our mission is to uplift and encourage women to be bold and not afraid to step outside the box. Makeup is art and beauty is YOU!

What should our readers know about your business?

We do external research on all our products which includes naming of palettes, graphics, and shades. We aim for the please our customers so reviews are big to us. With that being said, with every purchase, we send a personalized note to our customers. Nothing worth having comes easy — Theodore Roosevelt. We have a goals to reach and running a business is hard. However, with dedication and consistency. We remind ourselves that all the challenges and obstacles will be worth it once we’ve reached our goal.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was in town for the weekend I would take her out for brunch at Breakfast at Barneys. Absolutely one of the best breakfast spot in Atlanta. For fun I would take her to punch bowl social for good drinks and games. We would hangout at the belt line and grab a smoothie bowl at Playa Bowl.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our mother is our motivation and biggest supporter. She constantly encourages us to keep going and to never stop going after our dreams.
