Our story begins one long, hot afternoon inside the famed Australian department store, David Jones. Our beloved Canadian, Karissa, was working for Estee Lauder 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 neighboring pharmacy to look for better options, but to her dismay she came up empty handed.
A business is born.
To cut a long story short Karissa had had enough. She was tired of average lashes that cost a pretty penny. Frustrated with searching the shops and waiting weeks for online orders, she decided to do something to fix it.
Determined to change the way people bought lashes, Karissa pitched an idea to her brother, Hayden. He had a knack for starting businesses so it didn’t take a lot of convincing. After an endless amount of coffee and late-night Skype calls, soon enough, SocialEyes Lashes was born. The goal was to cater to local and international customers alike, providing an exceptional experience from start to finish. Before long, SocialEyes Lashes was manufacturing ethical, vegan lashes in a wide range of affordable styles – catering to all eye shapes 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 grown to include warehouses in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, with a headoffice in British Columbia. Today, SocialEyes Lashes sells their premium lashes to 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. SocialEyes is still motivated by its roots of selling awesome, high quality lashes at a fair price. The only thing that’s changed is now there’s a focus on getting them to people quickly! That means that instead of outsourcing everything, each lash is handled by a SocialEyes employee who cares about what goes out the door.
