About the founder
Photo by Flossie O'Riley
My name is Jasmine Adams, and I created this business in Charleston, SC, as a high school student who was tired of struggling with my makeup on a daily basis. After years of poking myself in the eye early in the morning with my mascara wand or trying to get rid of greasy shine halfway through the school day, I was thrilled to discover, in an old swim suit of all things, a type of material that could make all my makeup woes disappear - literally! Even more amazing to me was that nothing like this existed on the market. I broke out my parents' old sewing machine and began searching for more of this ‘magic’ fabric online. I had many doubts starting out, but with the encouragement and support of countless friends, family, teachers, mentors, and entrepreneurs, I established Smudgies, LLC, in May 2017.
