Hidden Gems: Meet Marilyn Zuniga and Jeanette Amezcua of Solivi Lashes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marilyn Zuniga and Jeanette Amezcua.

Hi Marilyn and Jeanette, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Jeanette and I were friends back in high school. We didn’t really keep in touch or hang out when we graduated (2008). We started hanging around again about ten years later and became very close. During Covid, we shared with each other wanting to start a lash business. We were both passionate about lashes she (Jeanette) wore them all the time and I (Marilyn) had always been into makeup. One thing led to another and we ended up at IHOP planning out our name, launch date, and all ideas. It was not easy, but staying consistent and positive has always been the key to get us where we are today.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It definitely has not been a smooth road. We believe it really helped having a conversation beforehand that it was not going to be smooth and we were going to struggle along the way. We have days where we are POPPIN and days where we don’t make sales or have the engagement we want on social media. On top of that, we are two women with different opinions, we had to find a way to communicate well.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Solivi Lashes has become a brand that allows you to feel even more beautiful than you are. We know makeup/lashes is not what makes someone beautiful. But let’s be real, we have those days where we want to look more beautiful. We take our time to create and bring different types of lashes to complement every shape of eyes. Solivi Lashes has expanded to more than just lashes. Body scrubs, beauty blenders, lash kits… we want to be your one stop shop for all your beauty needs.

What do you think about luck?
We don’t believe we have had good or bad luck. We strongly believe that things happen for a reason. The positive outcome we have gotten has simply been because we work hard towards our goals and we stay motivated.
