“People usually think I play with makeup all day and some anonymous male runs my company for me…SUVA Beauty is my first proudest achievement.”

Shaina is the 32 year old founder and CEO of SUVA Beauty. Much like her cosmetics, Shaina is  bold, inventive, imaginative, weird, and cheeky. Shaina’s favourite place is on the couch with her munchkin, and she jokingly adds, in front of a Halal food truck. Humour is important to Shaina she told me, “I sometimes choose a random day where I'll talk with an Indian accent all day long. Life's too short to be so serious. My philosophy is to always let that inner weirdo out.” When I asked Shaina how she would like to be perceived she responded, “As a funny woman you'd want to have a churro eating contest with, and it just so happens she's also a confident, ruthless, powerhouse of a woman running a successful international business.”
