What is your favorite part about being on YouTube?
My favorite part about being on YouTube is teaching! What may be super easy for me, might be very difficult for others. I love giving my tricks on how to apply makeup quicker and easier, or simpler ways to style an outfit.
What are your favorite videos to make?
My favorite types of videos to make are definitely celebrity inspired looks and fashion related videos! The biggest reason for this is because I love helping anyone achieve a look they have seen on a red carpet or on someone they admire, with very easy steps or affordable products.
If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It is very hard to choose only one product, but if I had to, I would most likely go with mascara! I have an obsession with long lashes.
What is your guilty pleasure?
ICE CREAM or BREAD… what I crave.
Where is one place you’d love to travel?
Since I have not done too much traveling, I would love to visit New York and just spend a few days there.
What do you like to do in your free time?
During my free time, I like trying new restaurants and coffee shops. If I am just at home, I love watching a good show or movie.
Your birthday is this month! Are you planning anything fun?!
Yes, my birthday is on the 23rd! I am not one to plan much for my birthday, but I usually go out to dinner and blow out some candles.
What are your top 3 favorite Sigma brushes or products?
