What is the most transformational beauty advice you've ever received?
Eyebrows! Eyebrows are the frames of the eyes! They honestly make such a huge difference. Mastering what shape and color is best suited for your face can really do wonders! :)
When there is new make up product in the market, what determines if you want to try this product out?
I definitely try to test out what my viewers tell me they want to see! Whether that's the newest foundation, lipstick or whatever it may be! I do also stay true to what I know works for my personal skin type as well. For example- I have combination oily skin so I tend to go towards products that will help target that! I also keep my skin's undertone in mind and choose colors that flatter me, while also offering my viewers alternatives for those who have a different undertone to their skin.
What is your favorite high-end product, and what would be the drugstore dupe?
I would hands down have to say one of my favorite high end products would be MAC's "Diva" lipstick- it's a sexy deep red that's perfect for a statement lip! I've found a spot on dupe for it and that's Wet N Wild's Matte Lipstick in "Cherry Bomb"! Another great Wet N Wild dupe is "Sugar Plum Fairy" lipstick, on the lips it's identical to MAC's Rebel! Another one of my faves!! :-)
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three makeup products would be a must?
Hmm let's see.. I would first say a good pigmented concealer such as MAC's Prolong Wear or Hard Candy's Glamoflauge. That could double up as a foundation as well! Then I would say a nice pinky lipstick such as Maybelline's "Pink Peony" that could be used for lips & cheeks! And then a good mascara! My current faves are Covergirl Lashblast & Eyekos Magic Lash. Make sure they are waterproof for that island, haha!
What do you enjoy most about being a YouTube beauty guru?
That would absolutely be the connections I build with my subscribers. Whether its through YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram I continue to be inspired by them on a daily basis! I have made so many friends since being on YouTube, and not only do I share my own tips and tricks but I learn from so many other girls as well! I love being able to interact with so many girls from all over the world. My viewers have truly made me feel very blessed, over & over again
