Our story begins one long, hot afternoon inside Australian department store, David Jones. Our founder Karissa, was working for Estee Lauder at the time and while doing a client’s makeup, noticed that the store had a very limited selection of lashes – most of which were rather expensive. There was only one brand she could spy that sold more than just a couple of styles, and they cost $20+ a pair! On her break, she swung by a neighbouring pharmacy to look for better options, but to her dismay she came up empty handed.
A business is born!
Tired of waiting weeks for online orders or finding overpriced plastic lashes in stores (or even worse, finding overpriced lashes made from animal hair…) Karissa was determined to change the system. After coming up with a name and designing some styles, she pitched an idea to her entrepreneurial younger brother Hayden, and with copious amount of coffee, lots of trial and error and many late-night, international Skype calls, SocialEyes Lashes was born!
The goal was to cater to local and international customers alike, providing an exceptional lash shopping experience from start to finish. Before long, SocialEyes Lashes was manufacturing ethical, vegan lashes in a wide range of affordable styles with unmatched quality and ultimate comfort – catering to ALL and shipping to customers all over the globe.
With humble beginnings in a small garage on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, SocialEyes Lashes has since grown to include warehouses in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, with a head office in British Columbia.
Today, SocialEyes sells our gorgeous lashes to creative guys and gals all over the world with distributors in Iceland, New Zealand, Kuwait and Europe – among others.
Basically, we’re on track for total world domination!
The focus hasn’t really changed since that fateful day in David Jones. SocialEyes is still motivated by its roots of selling awesome, high quality lashes at a fair price and providing a platform for ALL artists.
