Vera Catalina Naranjo was born in Medellin, Colombia. She learned at an early age that your appearance impacts the way people identify you. Vera was bullied through elementary school. She knew at an early age that she wanted to be in the beauty industry where she could help people look and feel even more beautiful. In 2014, she attended “Make Up Designory” in Burbank, California. She loved makeup and primarily focused on eyes which became her favorite feature to focus on. After completing her makeup training, Vera decided to join her cousin, Alejandra Arango Uribe, on a similar journey. Alejandra just finished her makeup and an intense lash extension training program in Colombia, Medellin. Vera currently resides in West Chester, Pennsylvania, where she found her passion and calling. Alejandra thought it would be a good idea to offer lash extensions with her makeup applications. Vera jumped on the opportunity to learn lash extensions and fell in love with the art quickly.
Alejandra and Vera became an all star team. They decided to share goals, work hard and expand their business, and “The Wink Lab, LLC” was born.
