What inspired you to start a YouTube channel?
I’ve always had a huge passion for beauty and makeup because of my figure skating background. When I first discovered the beauty community on YouTube, I watched Annie Jaffrey and Zoella constantly. They both inspired me so much – I just love the positivity and inner beauty they both portray. I’m pretty sure I watched through every single one of their videos and at that point, wanted to try creating a video of my own. Granted it was one of the worst videos I’ve ever seen (definitely cringe-worthy lol)… but everyone has to start somewhere, right? 😉
What is your favorite type of video to make?
I love doing Chit Chat GRWM’s, Celebrity-Inspired looks and Everyday Makeup tutorials!
What advice do you have for someone who is thinking about starting a channel?
Be yourself and never give up! I know that may sound cliché, but it’s so true! I’m a firm believer that the best way to stand out amongst the crowd is to be true to who you are. When I first started my channel, I was super shy in front of the camera. I was afraid of what people would think of me while watching my videos, but once I let go of that fear I was able to genuinely be myself on camera. Never ever give up on your goals and aspirations. Dedicate your heart and soul to what you’re passionate about and you will be successful at whatever you put your mind to.
Describe your ideal everyday makeup look.
I’ve been really into “No-Makeup Makeup” looks lately. Concealer, light bronzer and lots of glow!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I’m not sure exactly where I’ll be in 10 years – I just know I want to be happy whatever I’m doing!
What is your best beauty secret?
Water, water, water! Staying hydrated is SO important! I notice a huge difference in my skin and the way my makeup applies when I make sure to stay hydrated. If you know me, I bring my water bottle everywhere I go so I’m constantly hydrating!
You create so many new looks every week; where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration from everything around me whether it be fall leaves, celebrity makeup looks, a beautiful sunrise – beauty is all around us!
If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life what would it be?
OMG! This is tough. Hmm probably a concealer… I’d have to go with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – it’s one of my ride or die products because it’s lightweight and doesn’t budge!
What do you consider your “signature” makeup look?
Bronzed and Glowy Glam!
