Meet Jalisa Mosby of Shady Lashes in Panorama City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jalisa Mosby.

Jalisa, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Born in Arkansas. Becoming older I knew my personality was too big for the small town I grew up in. I would always write in my journal about moving far away when I was older and becoming a fashion designer. My journey officially started when I stepped out on faith and moved to Texas in 2014. I dove right into corporate America and was never satisfied with what job I worked. So I started to seek modeling opportunities and it evolved to walking in 20+ fashion shows in four different states. My passion found me when I moved to Los Angeles, California in 2017. I had no clue what was really coming. When I started networking, which was new to me, I always introduced myself as a makeup artist. Being confident in who I said I was, the opportunities started flowing in for makeup jobs in the industry. When I realized I was putting myself in a small box, I stopped saying what I thought I was supposed to say and started telling people what I really was. I am a passionate entertainer, model, content creator and makeup artist. I had to remember why I was really here. And that was not just to be a makeup artist. My confidence grew in knowing I was multitalented and needed to share all my gifts with the world. I am where I am today because I never gave up. I am where I am today because of faith.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has definitely not been a smooth road, but a worthwhile roller coaster. Challenges and struggles I faced were not having enough money to do what I enjoyed, losing people who I thought were friends, and discovering what my purpose was in all of this dream chasing. Through all of the challenges as a young dreamer in Los Angeles, I stayed steadfast in my journey. Sometimes I wanted to give up, not knowing how far the Destination was. But I learned quickly that there is no Destination it is a marathon. The journey continues. I know that it will always be an uphill battle that is already won! I Never stopped praying.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Shady Lashes – what should we know?
I’m an entrepreneur and CEO of Shady Lashes. Shady Lashes, launched in March 2020, offers 3D Faux Mink Eyelashes. Inspired by my 5 younger sisters! Each style is named after them. I am most proud of stepping out on faith and investing into myself. Without the investment there is no finished product. What sets me apart from others is my anointing. I don’t do what I do because of me, I do what I do because of Jesus, my family and every dreamer who’s watching me! Shady Lashes also loves to give back and participate in monthly outreach work.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I feel like genuineness, honesty, humbleness and faith are most important to my success!
