Just thought I would introduce myself, For those who don’t know me my names Katie Louise Hamer & I am the founder of Team Fabulash (Fabulash Cosmetics).
I was born and raised in Sunny Bolton,UK. I have always had a love and passion for makeup from being young I think us girlies just do dont we?
When I was 7 I was diagnosed with a condition called Bellspausy. This affects the way your nerves work in your face. This is were one side of my face just decided to give up.
As you can emagine teenage years was a struggle for me. I would never take photos or have my photo taken, not even for family special occassions. For years I was missing from my family photos & I didn’t even attend school leavers ball. I just felt different until I found makeup. Makeup was a hideaway back then and when wearing it I felt my condition wasn’t as noticable. I loved and still love the way makeup makes me feel.
I started coming out my shell when I went to college.I really began to realize that life is for living ... New people ... New start!
Now all my friends call me the Selfie Queen!!!!
Us girls love a good selfie don’t we but my condition is always and will always be there.
What im trying to say is when you are passionate about something don’t let ANYTHING hold you back, Go for it!
Joining Younique just felt right, even though my bellspausy still bothers me I knew that this business was my calling. I never really knew what I wanted to do growing up. I could never put my finger on it. I worked in mlm sales, mobile phone sales for 7 years, pubs and even a scrap yard but I knew there was something bigger and better for me & dolls this is it!
When I joined in March 2014, I had people tell me I couldnt do it, be careful, you won’t make any money . Just the usual negative comments and I just said “OK just wait and see”.
Everything that could of been thrown at me has. Im bringing my son up now 9 month old on my own, I have literally lost everything. From my apartment to close relationships with family, due to my sons dad & most recently I’ve had to take my car off the road as I can’t afford to pay for the tax and insurance. My life has hit rock bottom, However I never gave up!!!!!
Younique has been my savour. Seriously it was like the business came into my life at the right time. My mother said to me “Sometimes Katie you have to loose everything to really appreciate what you will soon have” and she is 100% right!
Without you dolls I would not be were I am today. Stronger and more determined to succeed and now my aim is to get as many of you go-getters to the top of this amazing company. What a huge opportunity we all have been blessed with.
Please don’t waste it! Opportunites like this do not come around often.
My aim in sharing my story is to say, whatever life throws at you, just get back up and keep going....
Lots of Love
Katie Louise Hamer
