Inspiring Person of the Month- Betty Ann Rosa- Galderisi, Beauricua Cosmetics

If you can tell, at all by my previous post, feeling passionate about your work and following your dreams is something that resonates, deeps in me, so when I encounter someone else that displays that same passion- I can’t help but make them an inspiration for me. So I’ve decided each month, I’ll share someone I’ve come across whose work and drive for success can be an inspiration to us all.

November’s Inspiring Person is Betty Ann Rosa-Galderisi, Creator/Founder/Owner of Beauricua Cosmetics. Betty Ann has been in the business of making people beautiful for 30 years and is a licensed Cosmetologist, Esthetician, and Nail Technician with specialties in Make-up Airbrushing and Nail Art. She created Beauricua Cosmetics with the idea of wanting to do something for her Latin community, and she thought what better way to utilize her talents and create a cosmetic line and provide services with women of color in mind. In May 2007, she created Beauricua Cosmetics, honoring her Puerto Rican roots with play of words based on Boricua and Beauty.

I first came across Beauricua Cosmetics early this year while searching if a cosmetic line for Hispanic/Latina women existed. I was a bit skeptical in finding a cosmetic line that catered to such a diverse ethnic group since Latin women come in all types of skin tones. Through my online search I came upon Beauricua Cosmetics. I went on to be more curious to find out more about this makeup line that could make such a bold claim and upon falling in love with vast array of eye shadows, blushes, lipglosses. I realized, what made this line work was that it was understood, no matter the ethnicity, these products where universally flattering to all different skin tones. After being wowed by this line, I became a Facebook fan and followed the blog religiously (as I do with all my beauty companies) so you can imagine my excitement when I was personally contacted by Mrs. Betty Ann herself. She asked what products I personally liked and chatted about what her line offered. She states “I always try my best to get to know our customers. For me is all about making people feel special because they are. Quality comes before quantity because that is what makes a happy customer come back.” Ladies- this is what sets Beauricua Cosmetics apart from all the rest – Betty Ann truly cares what her customers are looking for, listens to them, and does her best to create the product to suit the customer needs.

Creating what the customer wants is so important to Betty Ann, custom made beauty products is a service also offered by Beauricua Cosmetics. Looking for that perfect shade of lipstick to match dress for a special event- Betty can create it.
Favorite lipgloss color discontinued- Betty can recreate it. Love a color in a powder blush, but dries out your skin- Betty can make you a cream blush in that color. What Betty can create is Beauty Magic, and it’s not only limited to wonderful beauty products and custom made orders- she also offers her Make-up Artist services for private occasions!

I can only say great things about Beauricua Cosmetics and the mastermind behind the brand and the proof is in the pudding. You can find Beauricua Cosmetics online and more recently they have been featured at Shecky’s events, even wining an award for their all natural Lip Scrub. It was at this November Shecky’s event I had the pleasure in meeting Betty Ann personally and she is a fabulous, caring, and personable as she seems. I can say I am so impressed by not only her work ethics, and her devotion to servicing the beauty needs of women of all ethnicities, but also in being such an inspiring individual.

  1. My Dear Miss Mandii, Thank you so much for your kind words of recognition and acknowledgment. I am in awe with your post because it really conveys a kindled spirit within you and the warmth to not only the things you write about, but to the people you come across during your journey in this world. Recognition is a powerful force that has always inspired me to do better. So when I come across a unique individual such as yourself, that sincerely appreciates and understands who I am and the motivation that drives my purpose, the universe is letting me know that we are divinely favored. So my dear Mandii, you are my inspiration and my special person not just for the week, month or year, but that special person in my life. Your post has validated that I am doing something RIGHT! I wish you much success with your blog. So if there’s ever an event that you want to attend and wish to feel like you are on the Red Carpet, please let know, my staff and I will spoil you! And it will be on me! THANK YOU!
