Yolondo Salmon-Thomas is homed in on helping women draw on their creativity to express their unique identity. As Yolondo states, “what makes me feel meaningful every day, is the ability to invigorate other women to be the best version of themselves.”
Relevantly, in a date to be announced, Yolondo plans to mentor ambitious mentees on her formula for success. A Certified Makeup Artist, Yolondo is renowned for her popular on-line tutorials that highlight her fast-selling original makeup, sold at a fraction of the cost offered by her competition. The collections include: Highly Pigmented Eyeshadow Palettes, Mix Race Contour Palette, luxurious eyelashes, lip glosses, and so much more.
Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, West Indies, Yolondo lost her mother at the age of eight. She remembers her as a very caring and affectionate person. At the age of 17, the 31-year old solopreneur immigrated with her father to the U.S., settling in Georgia. Her strong work ethic was showcased in her very first job.
Her first job was at a fast food restaurant. As a result of her hard work, she earned a salary increase within two weeks of being hired. Although she was proud of her achievement, her reactions were mixed, because of the amount of the raise. It amounted to ten cents per hour. Nonetheless, she realized the importance of maintaining a positive attitude and thus, tempered her determination to become successful in life. Her strong work ethic, positive attitude, and drive to succeed never wavered. In fact, she entered the health care field, which allowed her to accumulate a modest savings. She started her company in 2018 without financial assistance.
As of September 15, 2020, the company has generated over $1M in revenue for the year, an increase of 560 percent over the total revenue for 2019. Not resting on her accomplishments, Yolondo expects additional growth from revolutionary, in-demand products and through focusing on customer retention and acquisition.
Yolondo currently resides in New Rochelle, NY, is married to Rayon Thomas and has two young daughters.
