Our goal from the beginning has always been simple - Reina Rebelde is about the beautiful Latinas that make our community so powerful. We are SO proud that our first ever product collaboration is with the amazing Kay-Lani Martinez of @Viva_Glam_Kay.
Kay-Lani Martinez is a 27-year-old social media beauty powerhouse of Puerto Rican descent with a combined following of more than 1.9 million! A true beauty chameleon and a Rebel Queen in her own right, Kay-Lani’s followers from across the United States and beyond are inspired by her incredible beauty tutorials and amazing hair tips. Kay-Lani also gives the world a look into her life — as a single mom to five-year-old Lee’Ani and showcasing her extended family. The centerpiece of her content is her innate passion for life, her incredible drive to succeed beyond the challenges of a tough childhood upbringing in Brooklyn, and her immense love for her Puerto Rican heritage.
Working with Kay-Lani on this collaboration for the last year and a half has been nothing short of amazing - I've learned so much about Puerto Rican culture, winged eyeliner, how hard it is to film a YouTube video, and the epic journey that this self-made woman has been on turning her creativity and art form into daily inspiration for so many people worldwide. Above all, Kay-Lani and I believe it is imperative to offer our support in whatever way possible to the people of Puerto Rico and are proud to donate a portion of proceeds from this collaboration to UNIDOS, Disaster Relief & Recovery Program to Support Puerto Rico. We hope you will feel inspired by the love and cultural pride that was put into this collaboration!
Con mucho cariño xx Regina
