Chase your dreams with Fineza Da Cunha Paillisser.
Because I was born in a country where the difference between difficulties and opportunities is huge, I learned early on that dreaming is one of the most important things in life, that a life without dreams is a life without meaning. Because in a sea full of difficulties dreams are what move us, they give us strength to live go on and create opportunities when they do not exist.
However making a dream come true is not easy. Between the dream and the realization of it, there are failures and difficulties that often “almost” cause us to give up. And at that point it is very important to have a source of inspiration, a person to whom we can look up to, to make us believe again and stay focused. These people with their experiences and achievements show us that it is possible to make a dream come true. And today I bring you one of these people. This is Fineza da Cunha Paillisser, an entrepreneur and very hard-working woman, who despite all the difficulties has conquered her dreams one by one. She recently launched her line of cosmetics and in a little “interview” she’ll tell us how she made it. Want to get inspired? Read the interview to the end.
Angodiva: Fineza, tell me a little about yourself?
Fineza: I am the Fineza Da Cunha Paillisser, I am a professional makeup artist and the creator of the cosmetics line “Madame Paillisser”.
Angodiva: Was it ever a dream of you to create a line of cosmetics?
Fineza: For some years I had this dream. In addition to being a makeup artist, I wanted to create my own line of cosmetics.
Angodiva: And how was that journey?
Finesa: it was difficult because it took me 5 years to find quality and laboratories that want to divert from their product line to create my brand. Another point was the choice of each ingredient, color, smell, and to name each Province of Angola.
Angodiva: hmm interesting! And where did the idea comes from to give the lipsticks the name of each Angolan province?
Fineza: I wanted every Angolan woman to feel identified with the product. Each province has its beauty, character and culture. And the choice of every ingredient, color, the smell was based on that.
Fineza: Angola is still consuming a lot of international product, Madame Paillisser had and continue to make good progress, in our country things take a little more time, but we will succeed.
Angodiva: I love this positivism. And is your brand also marketed internationally?
Fineza: at this moment the brand is also already being marketed in France, Brazil and Holland. We have already participated in an African fair in France, and we are gradually going as far as God wants. Simply trusting the one who gave you life, strength to move on.
Angodiva: and what was your trajectory? How did you get here?
Fineza: I have been through many things in this life. I did not wake up overnight and do makeup and did not even become a makeup artist with a simple workshop. Make-up for me is not just a way to make money. Make-up is my great passion, it’s my love of art. But being able to be one was not easy. I wanted to really be a professional makeup artist and I decided to train myself in this field. I enrolled in many professionals courses, in some I wasn’t accepted and other were just too selective to allow me to enter. But I always believed in myself. So I kept knocking on doors and I got it.
Angodiva: wau and what are your new projects?
Fineza: at this moment I am meeting in France for new projects but it is still a little early to share them.
Angodiva: Finesa I wish you a lot of success, continue to be this woman full of strength inspiring everyone around you. I loved every lipstick, the smell, the color and the quality is amazing. But before I say goodbye, can you leave some advice for our readers?
Fineza: yes, of course (hahaha) thank you. Never give up on your dreams, no one lives your life to realize them but you.
well loves, I hope you have enjoyed and have been inspired. As always, I could not leave this wonderful look here for you, which was specially composed based on my favorite lipstick from Madame Paillisser’s line. This is Namibe. It is dry and has an extraordinary pigmentation. No retouching during the day. Just one go et voilà. The color is very beautiful, combines very well with my skin tone and is ideal to use for any occasion. It’s super hot for a party, but you can also combine it with a work outfit, but don’t wear too much.
Do not forget to dream and always fight for the fulfillment of your dreams. A life without dreams is a life without light.
