Community Highlights: Meet Seanice Waddell of Monè Cosmetics

Today we’d like to introduce you to Seanice Waddell. 

Hi Seanice, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
People navigate life from adolescence longing to establish their identity and beauty. Moreover, not only to be seen as beautiful but feeling beautiful. I share this desire and have grown the passion to help people break barriers of living up to society’s expectation of what it means to be beautiful and instead Defining Your Own Beauty. So, in 2018 I sought out to do just that by founding Mone’ Vegan Cosmetics, a brand powered and inspired by people’s creativity and uniqueness in creating their own style with makeup products. Mone’ is extremely dedicated to the safety of our audience’s skincare and avoids the use of any animal products or testing, highlighting our all-natural and vegan makeup line. Our efforts at Mone’ have led to successes, such as our features inside of several storefronts. This past June our company was invited to participate in Michigan’s Fashion Week and recently landed an invitation to Glam Fest in Brooklyn, New York, this Fall. We are grateful for these accomplishments and for our future opportunities. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
My passion in making our mission successful has been met by many obstacles to overcome. This includes building a team of motivated photographers and people that share the same desires in building and intriguing our audiences. I have learned that in my failures in launches and branding my products that it is okay to start back to “square one” to reach more success and impact larger masses of people. Learning from mistakes has led me into identifying key Brand Ambassadors. So, not just the “popular” or trendy socialites but people who are just like me and my target audience. This has created authenticity in our brand and continues to help us become more successful and spread the importance of people identifying their own beauty. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Monè Cosmetics LLC?

Who else deserves credit in your story?
There’s no limit of gratefulness I have for everyone that has played a part in making Mone’ Cosmetics successful. I am forever indebted to the inspiration of people that have joined alongside me in piloting this business and am especially thankful to people I have loss over the years that may have physically left earth but have left impactful legacies on myself and our community. I strive daily to continue to make them proud and in doing so have dedicated several collections to our “Fallen Angels.” In addition, our collections have also been inspired by breast cancer survival and awareness. We even provide a percentage of our profits into foundations in this regard. The outpouring of support everyone has given me in launching my brand and following my dreams to make it successful will never go unnoticed or unrecognized.
