Tell us about your makeup journey?
I fell in love with makeup at a very young age. I can remember watching my mom do her makeup and being in absolute awe. My interest grew into a passion from about the age of 15 when I was able to start playing with makeup on myself.
It was then that I started watching Youtube artists such as Kandy Johnson, Jaclyn Hill and Desi Perkins. I would mimic their videos and began understanding my facial features and the makeup techniques that suited them.
I enjoyed trying out products that I saw celebrities using as well as following trends that magazines spoke of. Since then my makeup collection has grown and so my interest in sharing my thoughts and experiences with different companies, products and techniques.
My true passion is in sharing my opinions, teaching fellow babes my makeup tips and inspiring others with the looks I create.
What inspires your makeup?
I am inspired by a number of influences.
To me a Goddess would be a woman with a beautiful soul. It doesn’t matter how well you dress or the makeup you wear, if your soul isn’t beautiful it will reflect outwardly in the way you carry yourself and treat others.
What motivates you to get up in the morning?
I am motivated by the fact that I was put on this Earth purposely by God. Each morning I wake up determined to bring light into the lives of the people who cross my path.
What are your top 3 beauty essentials?
This is difficult for me because I ADORE all my products. But, if I have to choose- A brow gel liner, because no one in 2017 wants to see a bare brow. A gel liner gives you the option of creating natural hair like strokes or to go bold with an exaggerated arch.
A hydrating foundation, because if you find the right one you can achieve an all-round glow without needing to add highlighter. And lastly a liquid matte red lip because it goes perfectly on glowing skin with bold brows.
Why is it important to feel empowered as a young woman?
The feeling of empowerment encourages woman to speak their mind, create change and positively encourage another who needs a boost in their undiscovered confidence. This is so important to me because if girls came together we could be an unstoppable force which this world so deeply needs. I strongly believe the future is female!
