Beautiful Ink Cosmetics President
Kristy Bonney President of Beautiful Ink Cosmetics
I want to introduce myself and how I became the President of Beautiful Ink Cosmstics. Growing up wasn't all glitz and Glam. I was the tom boy of the family. I had my hair all slicked back in a pony tail. I never wore girly clothes. I was a jeans and t-shirt girl playing basketball some days, building forts, playing in the dirt with cars other days. Being raised with 3 brothers and 1 sister who had cancer was never what I imagined my life would be like. I imagined being able to go on shopping dates with my sister, being able to do each others makeup, and telling secrets about boys. You know the "inseparable" sisters type thing. Well, that was never able to become. My sister was in and out of the hospital for chemo and radiation. You know radiation is the evil of all. Radiation breaks the tumor cells in your body down to destroy it. My sister was left in the mindset of a 10 year old. She never learned to write, or spell and lost all her hair. Makeup, she had no idea even where to start or what it all did. She didn't care about makeup, she just lost all her hair. I felt alone not having anyone to do girly things with and just hang out and talk with. My mom worked fulltime and had to attend to my sister. That's when I started to get into makeup. I was about 13 years old when I found some of my moms old makeup. I would sit in front of my mirror in my room for hours playing around with makeup. I self taught myself on how to apply, by watching youtube videos for hours. One video, after another, after another. As i got older, I always had people telling me i should do makeup lives, and do makeup on people for weddings. People always said my makeup looked amazing and I was talented. I decided to join a makeup MLM company. I had NO idea what i was getting into, but I knew what i loved and that was my passion for makeup!! My goal with joining the company was to inspire other people, and show them tips and tricks I had learned. I didn't care if i made money, i just loved doing makeup and was so focused on helping other people. I had always envisioned my self walking around my own store seeing all the products I created, and doing peoples makeup in my store. That was a dream that was about to become true. Erica Giles ended up joining my mlm team. Her and I became inseparable and would sit on the phone for hours chatting about MLMs. We chatted about if we were ever to start one of our own how we would do things different. About 2 years later not knowing Erica was already in the process of starting her own business, I got a call from her asking me if I would be the PRESIDENT of her own makeup company. I was sitting in traffic with the windows down with her on my Bluetooth radio. I started smiling and screaming of excitement of the news i just heard. The people in the other cars were looking at me as if i just lost my mind. I kept asking her if this was a dream. I was trying to pinch myself to make sure this was true. I told her heck yea i want to be the President of the company. Now my dreams a reality and I can continue on inspiring other people and continuing on living my dream out!
