Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight takes an inside look at Bahi Cosmetics.In this interview talk with 20 year old Maryland native and owner, Danielle Bahi on how she started her dream cosmetics line and the obstacles she faced since launching.
Dasia: Tell me something about yourself?
Danielle: I have a level of creativity that makes me seem odd to others
Dasia: I came across this company on Twitter and seen how bomb you are and how everyone really likes what you have to offer . What inspired you to start your own cosmetics line?
Danielle: I’ve always wanted to create a makeup line. I’ve been constructing Bahi for over 2 years mentally but lacked funds. After two years of holding off on a dream because of funds, I refused to let the funds stop me from accomplishing my dream. So I accomplished the mental dream I had. Didn’t want to hold back any longer
Dasia: How long has it been since launching Bahi Cosmetics ?
Danielle: Bahi has been running for 4.5 months now
Dasia: What are some pro’s and con’s to owning a business?
Danielle: Owning a business yet alone a business where you are your own distributor isn’t as beautiful as people paint it. It’s hard work, restless nights and a lot of dedication. You will see things, experience things and get frustrated over things all for a greater outcome. You will sacrifice all of you for your business at times. But it does provide freedom for a creative. You’re working on your own time, you’re your own boss & most importantly, you’re doing what you love.
Dasia? What are some of the obstacles that you faced since launching Bahi Cosmetics ?
Danielle: Bahi faced issues from software issues to misunderstandings. A while ago, Bahi’s men (the men who ran the Bahi page) held a discussion on the Bahi page that backfired because of misunderstandings and plays of words but we learned from it and grew from it.
DasiaL How did you come up with the name ?
Danielle: It’s actually my last name.
Dasia: When did you know that you wanted to become a makeup artist ?
Danielle: 5th grade, when art became a form of escape for me & I vowed never to let it go.
Dasia: What do you love about makeup?
Danielle: I love everything honestly
Dasia: How long have you been doing makeup ?
Danielle : I have been doing makeup for 7 years now. I’ve been an esthetician for a year now
Dasia: What makes you different then any other makeup brand ?
Danielle : I don’t do this for the money, I do this to actually bring a smile to someone’s face and that’s the best goal I can have. Seeing people happy about my products and seeing how my products change people is my form of therapy. It makes me feel as if I’m doing something right.)
Dasia: What product(s) are your best sellers ?
Danielle : So far? The serum had been selling like crazy & It’s because it’s magic in a bottle.
Dasia: Have you hear of Fxshnjunke before? If not, what you are thoughts ?
