We had the good fortune of connecting with Sheyla M. Perez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sheyla M., can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?

In 2015 after having to start my life all over again, I knew it was time to finally do the things that I’ve always wanted to do in life.  I was focus to finally be able to work on my dreams and become the best version of myself.  Since a young age, i had always been interested in the beauty industry so I was more then ready to fulfill my dreams . I lived in Puerto Rico from 2015-2017 and that’s where I became Certified as a Permanent Makeup Artist.  One day while browsing through Fb and ad of Microblading came up and it looked very interesting. At that time my brows were very thin, so I instantly became interested. It was still a very new technique in the industry so I was ready to try something  new.
Within a few wks I took the course and it’s been great since then. I have taken many courses in the last few years to become better in what I do and also add other services to my business . I am now an experience Permanent Makeup Artist  located in Stockbridge, GA

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
As a permanent makeup artist since 2016, I have been specializing in different types and brands of pigments and inks. I use different types tool and/or machines to create a long-lasting change to the appearance, complexion, and color of your clients’ skin.

The most popular treatments I’m currently doing are Microshading Eyebrows and Lip blushing/ or neutralizing lips. I recently became a Certified Oreola Tattoo Artist and hoping to get connected with surgeons all over the world to focus mostly with breast cancer survivors.

What definitely sets me apart from others is that I am extremely passionate about what I do. I am a perfectionist and will always make sure I always go above and beyond with my clients. I am very humble and caring person that will continue working hard and will always offer the best.

I can say that I am very proud of myself and how far God has brought me. Each day I wake up with a grateful heart and continue trusting God during this process. 

I have been able to get to where I’m at today professionally, first with God by my side and being able to believe in myself and not give up. I always strive to become better in what I do, so I will continue learning and growing.

Has it been easy? No it’s been very hard specially after literally losing everything and having to start all over again.
I knew it was gonna be hard but i I’m very passionate in what I do so i will continue working harder each day to completely fulfill my dreams .

Have I overcome all the challenges in this industry? 

No and challenges will most likely come every single day. I will deal with them as they come and make the best of it. Consistency is the key so no matter what challenges I have to deal with, I’m not giving up .
I will succeed and make it big into Hollywood, Sorry I had to say that.. lol
The lessons I have learned along the way is that when you want something as bad as I do, you have to fight for it. Never compare yourself to anyone, never wonder how they got there so fast, never envy anyones success.  We are all unique in our own way, so focus on you and your goals. Any lessons that have came my way or come in the future, I will always pray and have faith.
What I want people to know about me is that I am a very humble, caring, professional and experience artist with a huge passion.

I want people to know that no matter what they have been through, there’s almost a shining light at the end of the tunnel. God has been faithful and mostly because I have trusted and continue to trust him each day. No matter what you have been through, don’t give up on yourself, go out and get it. Work hard and trust the process.

Is it easy? No but again consistency and believing in yourself is the key. We all have the same 24hrs, it all depends what you do with it!!
