As it's National Womens Day today we thought that it is only befitting that we celebrate just how ass kicking us women are by showcasing just a few of the women today who inspire us and continue to motivate us as Women here at Eyes of Solotica...
A strong, independent and fiercely fashionable businesswoman, Huda Kattan has paved the way for women in the beauty industry to accept their worth and celebrate their own beauty no matter what race, religion or physical appearance they may have. Inspirational to women around the world, Huda celebrates women on a daily basis and for that, we love her.
Not afraid of pushing those glass ceilings, Lilly Ghalichi is a self-professed Glamazon whose beauty is only outweighed by her brains. An Attorney by profession, Lilly is one of the most identifiable entrepreneurs in the beauty game. This Persian goddess has paved her way by creating institutions under her name and thus creating this interactive empire for women to uplift other women. A strong believer in all things beautiful, Lilly often reposts on her Instagram accounts women from around the world using her products with particular attention taken to celebrating the power, not just the beauty of women.
Fast becoming the most celebrated individual of our generation, Kylie Jenner is paving her own legacy amongst the controversy that surrounds her family. A true representation of herself at all times, Kylie Jenner is building the confidence in young girls to embrace who they are or who they might want to become as young women. A true believer in experimenting, Ms Jenner is a chameleon of fashions yet always remains true to herself, regardless of her critics. It is this confidence and power that is the true appeal of Ms Jenner. A woman who knows who she is and can encourage it by accepting others, is a woman who should be celebrated.

@tartecosmetics founder, Maureen Kelly.
Maureen Kelly is quite the success story as the owner and founder of one of the most profitable and socially recognisable cosmetic brands @tartecosmetics. Started in a one bedroom apartment she shared with her husband in NYC, Maureen had previously been studying her doctorate in Clinical Psychology prior to establishing the business. In the first year alone, Maureen was able to create an accumulated business debt of over $100,000 but it was not the debt that was the most heartbreaking obstacle to her dream. After losing her husband in September 11, Maureen returned to business almost instantly with the fear of her dreams folding. Fast forward to today and Maureen Kelly has created an empire that now turns over $15 million dollars in sales per year and growing. This woman is a powerhouse. Her capabilities, business sensibilities and work ethics has seen her succeed through even the most heartbreaking of times. This is one motivational woman and empire who should be celebrated.
