Rising Stars: Meet AuJenay Easley

Today we’d like to introduce you to AuJenay Easley.

Hi AuJenay, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Hello. I’m AuJenay Easley. I’m 21 years old. I have a one-year-old baby boy named Justin L. McNeal. I received my high school diploma from Druid Hills High School. Then attended some college at Georgia State Perimeter. I had my first thought about making my own lip gloss approx. three years ago when I noticed that there were very few moisturizing lip glosses. I then started doing research on how lip gloss is made. I watched a few other people make lip gloss. I even made a few glosses for myself just to test the moisture of the glosses.

Back in November 2020, I ordered my first order to make my own lip gloss. Came January 2021. I told my son’s father my plan. He believed in me and immediately told me to go for it. You love lip gloss, but you’re picky you don’t like thick lip gloss. So ever since then, my plan has been to make a good moisturizing lip gloss. I continued my research and started my journey. I launched my business Sky Gloss by Naay April 7, 2021. My goal since the very beginning was to create the best.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Yes it was smooth but, there were some bumps in the road, like the research it took to make the best products, from having to toss product and restart, to losing my son’s father in February 2021.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
Presently, i work at a bakery located in Avondale Estates. Where I decorate all types of cupcakes and cakes… Beauty beyond… then I work on my business after work and on my off days. Also, sometimes I help my mom with her home remodeling business on my off days. I’m most proud of the improvements my business has made. We had our first Pop Up Shop on August 8th. It was a great turnout. We’ll be doing more soon. Follow us on all social media to stay in the loop.

What matters most to you? Why?
What matters most to me is getting my product in stores all over the US. That’s my goal but, I also want to give ladies something soft for their lips with scented gloss and non-scented gloss. I want to do this because I love for my lips to be soft and have a shine. I’m sure other females will like the same.

  • $7.99 Lip Gloss
