FOUNDER OF BIRDY LASHES, YASMIN MAYA Yasmin Maya is a beauty entrepreneur and lifestyle creator. Born and raised in the State of México, from a pueblo called Amatepec, Yasmin came to the U.S. as a young teen. Being the only girl in the family, Yasmin taught herself how to do her makeup and loved glamming her mom and tias. In her first video uploaded in 2012, she speaks about an incident that almost burned her face, burning all of her lashes. Since then, she's been an avid user of falsies to define her eyes. At the age of 21, Yasmin took a leap of faith and decided to start a beauty YouTube platform, naming it after her nickname 'Birdy' but with a beauty twist, Beautyybird. Eight years later, Yasmin has created a safe home for her 'Beauties', showcasing herself as a proud Latinx with over 3M followers. Yasmin has become an authority in the beauty space, working with large beauty brands and breaking down barriers for Latinx consumers and talent alike. She's used her voice to speak up and showcase that she is proud of her Mexican heritage and is seen as an inspiration to those who feel the need to hide their background to be accepted in the beauty industry. In 2020, she achieved her biggest dream yet - and that was the launch of her very own brand, BIRDY LASHES. This brand came out of Yasmin's passion for the beauty industry, her love for her culture, and wanting to create lashes and lash tools that are not only the best quality but affordable - always keeping her 'Beauties' in mind. Yasmin is a proud mother of two beautiful hijas, Jayline & Kailin. She lives in California with her husband and parents. Aside from beauty, Yasmín also uses the large platform she has built as an opportunity to share her pregnancy journey and advice, shed light on motherhood and connect with other Latina moms around the world.
