Rhoda's Why 

As a young individual, I had the privilege of encountering extraordinary women leaders within my community who were deeply devoted to uplifting others. Their unwavering commitment to making a positive impact ignited a spark within me, inspiring a heartfelt aspiration to emulate their grace and generosity.

Embarking on this transformative journey, my initial step was to seek out image consulting services, a decision fueled by a desire to exude confidence from within. Subsequently, I delved into the world of fashion and beauty, obtaining a Fashion Degree, Image Consulting License, and Makeup Artistry Certificate in the vibrant creative essence of Southern California. Over the course of 35 years, I immersed myself in the beauty and fashion industries, cultivating a wealth of experience with various luxury brands.

In my pursuit, I discovered a profound revelation supported by studies: women who embrace appropriate makeup in professional settings can potentially increase their earnings by up to 20%, thereby contributing to closing the wage equity gap for minority women. This realization became a driving force behind my mission to empower professional women through the creation of a full-service Image Consulting Boutique and innovative Makeup Wardrobe Kits.

These kits, meticulously designed for the diverse needs of busy professional women, are trademarked for their ability to harmonize with all skin tones. Tailored for business casual, business suit, and evening galas, they serve as a beacon for guiding career women towards the most fitting makeup styles. Aligning makeup choices with one's verbal message not only fosters confidence but also establishes a credible professional presence, echoing the sentiment expressed by Dr. Albert Mehrabian that "93% of all communication is nonverbal."

My approach to elevating style transcends the superficial, weaving together elements of neuroscience, psychology, art, nature, beauty, fashion, and wellness practices. The result is a holistic and sustainable transformation, where botanical skincare, mineral makeup, statement gemstone jewelry, and color analysis converge to offer tools for authentic self-expression.

Clients embracing our Makeup Wardrobe Kits attest to their ease of use, time-saving benefits, and travel-friendly convenience. Beyond mere convenience, implementing our image strategies has proven to be a catalyst for empowerment, enabling individuals to make a profound professional impact. The heartfelt testimonials we receive affirm that our services not only attract new opportunities but also foster meaningful connections with clients and strategic partners.

In my unwavering dedication, I strive to impart knowledge and inspiration to professional women through the array of services and products I offer. It is my fervent hope that, through this journey, I can continue to contribute to the empowerment and success of remarkable women in their professional pursuits.
