Celebrate and embrace all your perfect imperfections! That is when your true beauty shines! ”
Before launching COCOTIQUE, she founded Divine Marketing Group, a boutique PR agency specializing in fashion, jewelry, beauty and lifestyle brands. Prior to that she worked in the fashion departments at Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, later transitioning into PR and marketing as the VP of Marketing and PR for Phat Fashions, Rocawear, and Fetish; with a detour into music at Arista Records.
It’s her experience in the fashion world that gave her the idea for COCOTIQUE. Armed with the knowledge that women of color spend 80 percent more on cosmetics and twice as much on skin care products than other demographics because of the difficulties in finding products that work for their specific beauty needs, she created a deluxe beauty box subscription service for women of color and diverse ethnicities. Each box contain 5-6 expertly curated beauty and lifestyle samples from skin care, hair care, fragrance, nail and lifestyle companies.
Hill has always had an obsession with discovering the best beauty products for women of color that not only suit their specific needs, but also have healthy ingredients. Although she created COCOTIQUE as an affordable way for women to treat themselves to a monthly beauty indulgence, she believes that true beauty comes from living a healthy lifestyle and focusing on the importance of beauty from the inside out.
With upcoming brand partnerships with LaLa and Chef Roble, her Rolodex of celebrity and influencer contacts will certainly help to propel the brand.
