It’s always inspiring to hear a positive story of someone who has not only created their own opportunities, but has won big by doing so.
Based in America, Hussanatu Ourstar Bah is an avid researcher and savvy beautician who initially googled her way into finding a solution to a problem that impacted not only her life but the lives of other women in society: inclusive yet clean cosmetics with over 30 products. And her efforts of trying to look beautiful turned her to find the best cosmetic brand.
Given the weather condition in her country – Sierra Leone and the African continent where she came from, Hussanatu Ourstar Bah prides herself in the business of providing cosmetic products that fit the skin and are suitable for every weather condition across the world.
Hussanatu Ourstar Bah is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of B2 OurStar, a global cosmetics and make-up brand that offers products and training to individuals, businesses and events including birthdays, parties, weddings, shows, graduations etc. B2 OurStar also offers wholesale and provides opportunities to local businesses in the cosmetics industry.
Born and raised in Sierra Leone, Hussanatu Ourstar Bah is from one of the most populous ethnic communities in Africa. Hussanatu explained that as a young girl, she used to wear all sorts of makeup brands, just to look extra beautiful. At school, at home, and even during small events, Hussanatu could go the extra mile to wear random make-up, regardless of who watched, complimented or criticised her.
”Many a time, my parents frowned at me, because I was gradually turning the house into a makeup shop, littering every corner with makeup containers. For me, it was fun but at the same time difficult for my parents. Sometimes, I would hide my makeup in the school bag and later during lunch break, I would call my friends and do their makeup. It was great and I loved the experience,” Hussanatu Ourstar Bah tells Salone Messenger Media of her journey and passion for cosmetics.
To Hussanatu Ourstar Bah, makeup meant everything. Her love for makeup continues for the most part from her young age unto these days, and that has enabled her to now earn the support of her family and friends in the pursuance of her dream.
While living in the United States of America, Hussanatu Ourstar Bah had the opportunity of interacting with women from diverse backgrounds who shared their experience and knowledge of how they have transformed and impacted fellow women in their home countries in Africa through business opportunities. This inspired Hussanatu to take action and establish the B2 OurStar business venture. She is very passionate about giving back to society and helping women create and own businesses. In addition to the cosmetics business, B2 OurStar has also launched a water and drinks company and is very much involved in creating other business ventures and opportunities.
To make her dream a reality, Hussanatu Ourstar Bah has conducted rigorous research, and production and carefully selected some of the flawless makeup brands and named them the ”B2 Ourstar products”. She believes that women should not only have to look beautiful but also look smarter and shine like a star. ”You are beautiful just the way you are, but to look more glamour and shining, it takes the effort of flawless makeup. B2 OurStar is the answer and the only way to shine.” Hussanatu tells Salone Messenger Media about the quality of the B2 OurStar products.
