Girl Shamed For Skin Problems Featuring Jamie Kern Lima
Jamie had a skin condition called rosacea which caused her to have a reddish face which may look like acne or sunburn.
She worked as an anchor for a newscast and she lost half of an eyebrow on air. The cameras had to switch to Rachel as it would not be a good look for the audience.
Jamie tried to explain to Ron that she has a skin condition but Ron does not want to hear it.
She discusses her problems with her husband Paulo and he supports her and says she should create make-up for people with rosacea and that they should use real women as their models and not people who looked perfect.
Jamie had an argument with Ron and quit her job.
She and her husband used their savings to start their own make-up company.
After experimenting with different formulations, they were able to find one that works even with people with rosacea.
Jamie was overjoyed and tried to market the product to big clients.
She was able to secure a meeting with one of the largest make-up retailers in the world.

This did not deter Jamie and she tried to market her make-up line IT Cosmetics through QVC.
Her product sold out and this began a string of successes for Jamie. IT Cosmetics became the largest beauty brand in the network.
Lima sold her make-up line to L'Oréal for $1.2 billion in 2016.
She has since dedicated her time to motivational speaking and empowering women.
She tells her story in her book Believe IT: How to Go from Underestimated to Unstoppable.
