Rising Stars: Meet Lilia Cardenas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lilia Cardenas.

Hi Lilia, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I am happily married, mom of three two girls and a 2-year-old boy. I’ve been in business for seven years, I started my career as a Makeup and Hair Artist in March 2016 while already in cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell. I graduated in 2017

I remember I knew nothing about makeup but was inspired in learning about myself, so I did, and little did I know this beauty industry would come into my life to change completely my perspective about what I really wanted to do. I would dress up a post every day my makeup looks and constantly engage and share my lifestyle until I became more public I started getting a lot of love and support inspiring messages, collaboration offers with different brands as a beauty and fashion influencer.

Being able to inspire share what I know and do what I love is truly rewarding to be part of this beautiful community has helped me a lot along the way and will continue helping others inspire and strive to become the best version of myself.

Alright, 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 but for me being a mom, housewife, my career and also being an influencer it has been a little hard having to find the time in between to create content and stay consistent but somehow I manage to make it happen.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in makeup and hairstyles (bridal, quinceañera’s, social events, and beauty educator). I also do Makeup PR’S. I’m known as a beauty and fashion influencer, makeup artist.

I am most proud of raising my children after having my firstborn at the age of 16 getting my diploma after and graduating from cosmetology school.

What sets me apart from others? that I am ME and nobody does it like me. I work hard for what I want.

Any big plans?
One of my dreams is to become a homeowner and own my beauty salon.
