Armas was one of just six 18-year-old contestants in the 2015 Miss World pageant, but she was unable to get in the top 30. She expressed her goals at the time in an interview, saying, “I always wanted to be a model, whether a beauty model, an advertising model, or a catwalk model.” She highlighted the difficulties and experiences the pageant brought up as she acknowledged her joy at participating.

Armas ran the Shey De Armas Beauty Studio, a store where she offered beauty, hair, and personal care items in addition to her modelling endeavours.
