Today we’d like to introduce you to Aubrey Destremps.
Aubrey, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am originally from Westport, MA then moved to New Bedford when I was a teenager. I am so glad I had my start there because it’s given me the best roots to grow from here on the west coast. After moving to Los Angeles, all I wanted to do was make my friends and family from back home in MA proud, but its become something even bigger than I ever imagined. Over the past two years, I have come out with a makeup line called “Aubrey Cosmetics” and started modeling. I am now selling cosmetics throughout the country and have my biggest customer base in the Boston area.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
This road has not been smooth at all, I’ve had a lot of roadblocks, to be honest; But it’s been so worth it, if I have any advice to young girls it’s not to give up. Sometimes, it feels like the whole world is working against you, sometimes it feels like the whole world is cheering you on. You have to be able to weather the tough parts to earn the good ones. Any young girl can accomplish anything, the first step is eliminating the belief thathereir are limits. I never thought I would be sitting here in LA doing this interview, but here I am. There are struggles for everyone going down an entrepreneurial path like this, but what separates the successful from the average is persistence- don’t give up no matter how uncertain things become.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Aubrey Cosmetics – what should we know?
On the daily, I work on my Aubrey Cosmetics marketing and also take clients. What makes my cosmetic business different is that I am a hair and makeup artist guiding the creation of it. I know the product quality that you need to have a beautiful finished makeup look, I also know how to use my own products and use them on my clients. My makeup brand is not just the makeup, but represents a lifestyle. These are luxurious products for women of all ages. The products are sleek and ready for travel on-the-go. My contour kit is perfect for a girl with a busy life like myself- built as a compact with a mirror to throw in a purse for application/touch ups on the go.
Which women have inspired you in your life?
I have been raised by strong women who have made me stronger. I am so inspired by my mother and grandmother. My grandmother ‘Mémère Annette” raised two babies after her husband left unexpectedly and was the first woman in my family to get a college degree. She has been my go to my whole life and always has the advice and wisdom. I look up to her for her strength through so many obstacles and I am so proud of her, I even have her signature tattooed on my foot. My mother inspires me because she has done everything she could to give me a great life and upbringing. My mother went back to school when I was in high school and got her masters degree and has an amazing job as a scientist. I have seen her flourish over these past years and create the life she has always wanted. She could only do this by making decisions that she knew not everyone would support, but sacrificed for her own happiness. I am so glad to see her doing what makes her happy now.
