Meet Melissa Jean of Steppin’ Stone Beauty in North Miami Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melissa Jean.

Melissa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Steppin’ Stone Beauty was launched in December 2017 during a time when I was unemployed and using funds that I had been saving for a rainy day. I was a newlywed and had just recently found a new hobby which happened to be makeup. I became super fascinated with cosmetics which led me to create my own cosmetics line. I started first with marketing and selling mink eyelashes online and I did so well with that I decided to go full force and add mostly all other cosmetics as well. Fast forward to today, I am now part-owner of The Fashion & Beauty Lounge which is a storefront in North Miami Beach where my company Steppin’ Stone Beauty is now located and featured.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road has not been smooth but it’s definitely been rewarding. I mainly struggled with products being in high demand and marketing new products as their launching and keeping up with the consistency of advertisement.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Steppin’ Stone Beauty is a cruelty-free cosmetics company that specializes in lipstick, lipgloss, eyeshadow, liquid highlighters, mink eyelashes as well as skincare. We’re most known for our highly pigmented long-lasting lipsticks and our organic skincare products. What sets us apart from others is our ability to use current events and the latest trends to market our products and keep our customers feeling and looking beautiful in the midst of everything.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was very shy, at times timid and very introverted. I was a book worm that was very inquisitive and very interested in the arts mainly dance and I inspired to be a professional dancer.
