This Beauty Influencer Has Worked With The Stars, But She's Proudest Of What's She's Doing For Fellow Breast Cancer Survivors
Dionne Phillips is a shining example of how grass-root hustle can lead to star-studded success. Hailed as “The Lash Queen” and a pioneer of lash extensions, her gifted hands have beautified the eyes of Hollywood heavy-hitters such as Viola Davis, Zoey Kravitz, Serena Williams and Mary J. Blige. When asked if she ever imagined that what started out in the kitchen of her New York City apartment would lead to her D’Lashes Luxury Lash Spa, located in perhaps the world’s most exclusive retail and real estate haven, she throws up her hands.
“Crazy, right?!” she replies. “A Black woman with a booming business in the heart of Beverly Hills.”
“I was just trying to be cute doing my own lashes for my casting calls” the former model and actress adds. “Next thing you know, I was doing them for a few friends. This made me realize I was on to something and I started perfecting my technique from that point forward. I had faith in myself and was already claiming that one day I would work among the stars.”
She soon said goodbye to being in front of the camera, hitting the ground running when she moved to California. “I was rollin’ up on women everywhere: ‘Hey, do you want to get your lashes done? I’ll give you a really good deal.’” Nowadays, she has an 8-month waiting list with people paying big bank to access her custom lashes and services.
