Hi Queen! My name is Elimar Depaula (you can call me Ellie for short) and I am the founder and CEO of Queen Cosmetics. I’m 21 years old and was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. From a young age, I've had a special love for makeup and beauty and I wanted to start my own unique brand that would be special, bold, all-inclusive, and boundary-breaking. After suffering a spinal cord injury due to a gunshot in 2019, I decided that since I got a second chance, I would finally pursue my dreams so I launched Queen Cosmetics in June of 2020. My goal with Queen Cosmetics is to design unique, innovative products and for everyone who wears our products to be free in their art. It's a beautiful and surreal feeling when you get to watch your vision come together before your eyes and see people appreciate what you’ve created. Without your support, this would not be possible. Thank you so much for being a part of this journey!
