You and I both know lashes can make a big difference! Whether you’re aiming for a natural appearance or a glamorous makeup look for a night on the town, lashes have had our back and you can’t deny it. We were introduced to FabyLASH, LLC a luxury mink lash brand that has completely changed our outlook on lashes and beauty overall. Our favorite celebrities such as Tiffany Haddish and Nene Leakes have been seen wearing lashes from FabyLASH and it’s clear to see why they love them so much! We sat down with Ketonya Bankston, the founder of FabyLASH, LLC to discuss what inspired her to create the well-known brand and her overall goal in making everyone feel beautiful when they wear a pair of FabyLASH!

Tell us a little about yourself.

In a nutshell, I think of myself as a small town girl with big city dreams. I grew up in the small historic town of Winslow, Arizona. I went to Northern Arizona University on an academic scholarship where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in advertising. Today, I am a professional makeup artist and I also freelance with International Cosmetics brand, IMAN Cosmetics and I have been doing that since 2013 through current. I am married to NFL alumni, Michael Bankston. Together, we have a blended family that consists of three girls and one boy.

What made you want to get into the lash world?

You know, being a professional model, successful makeup artist, and having a large platform in traveling with the NFL each year, I got to do players’ wives and celebrities makeup, I felt as if I reached a plateau. I desired more. I knew that I wanted to extend my career in the beauty industry but I didn’t want to compete with the mega cosmetics company. I prayed and I believe that God gave me the vision of luxury mink lashes and a dream. On November 12, 2017, I took a chance, stepped out on faith, and launched FabyLASH, my own brand of handcrafted, luxury mink lashes that are animal cruelty-free. I think of FabyLASH as my legacy.

How do you want your customers to feel when wearing FabyLASH?

I want my customers to feel like a 10! Even though none of us is perfect, our imperfections are what make us perfect in our own eyes. When you’re wearing FabyLASH, I want them to feel the luxury comfort in these beautiful lashes and to feel their beauty resonate to people that see them.

What are your goals for the future with you and your brand?

The goal for FabyLASH is to build a beauty empire. That empire will someday become my legacy. Its also my desire to have FabyLASH grow and expand to become the go-to brand for luxury, quality, beautiful mink lashes. I just want people to come to me as that household beauty brand name and know that I’m just like you. I am a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur, and I get it. I get what my customers want and what they desire. I want to give that to them in everything that we produce.
