Qualities that make each person unique such as their shape, size, or any other feature that makes that person different. Beauty is not only outer appearance, but what is inside that makes them who they are.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I draw my inspiration from everything around me. Usually when I'm watching YouTube videos or looking at pictures of other people doing their makeup, it inspires me to continue doing what I'm doing and to keep practicing.
What inspired you to create a YouTube channel?
When I was younger I had many different hobbies, but never remained with one. As time went by I discovered YouTube and "how to" tutorials. I continued to watch the videos in order to gain new skills such as how to apply eyeliner, lipstick, and even how to do my hair a certain way. I finally came to the realization that I could be just like these beauty gurus and help others that want to learn new skills in things such as makeup or even fashion. So with this dream set in my head, I went out and pursued it.
Why is makeup important?
Makeup is important because it is a way to express your creativity. In addition, it could also be used to build your confidence, which is what I love.
What is your favorite makeup?
My favorite makeup is mascara. The reason for this is because it's such a simple thing you could slip into your everyday routine, but makes such a huge difference. Mascara gives the appearance of a more girly/dolly look.
What do you think is the most important tool for a makeup artist?
The most important tool for a makeup artist is their knowledge of makeup. Regardless of the quality of the products, without the skill and knowledge of actually applying the makeup it would be a train wreck.
What advice do you have for someone that wants to do makeup?
My advice to someone who wants to do makeup is go for it! Just make sure you practice a lot, because that's the only way you will see your skills improve.
What is an interesting fact about you?
