We had the good fortune of connecting with Dukencia Romeus and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dukencia, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I came up with the idea of my business because originally I needed something to do on the side to pay for tuition. What started as a side hustle became something I enjoy doing daily.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a certified eyelash technician & licensed esthetician. I believe what sets me apart is that I continue to learn from others. As the lash industry or beauty industry period continues to grow, there is always new techniques and new ideas to implement to your business. I like to take in new material and execute it in a way that fits me to better serve my clients. I’m most proud of my growth because I came a long way. Granted, my business is growing but I’m much further from where I started. Some lessons that I’ve learned a long way are that to never get too comfortable and to always have a back up plan no matter what. I want the world to know that Delightful Minks is here to bring a pleasant experience to everyone I come across!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
So my best friend actually stays here lol but okay let’s pretend. Ok so I would definitely have to take her to the beach for sure. Like who comes to Miami and doesn’t go to the beach. Being that salt life is the best life we would do a yacht day along with jet skis right at the Sandbar. Her AirBnb would be located downtown Miami so we would go to Wynwood walls to see all the beautiful artwork and also try out the “it” food spots. If she decides to go clubbing I would call up my friend to get us in to Club Liv on Sunday. Her highlight of her trip though would be eating Sunday brunch at Sunday’s Eatery, Trick Daddy’s restaurant. You never know what will go down there but always good vibes and great meal!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shout out to my twins! My kids literally put the battery in my back to go hard for everything that I do! If it weren’t for them there wouldn’t be a Delightful Minks!
