3. Who influenced you in the make up world? Was it someone close to you? A famous person?
The very first beauty gurus I watched was back in 2016 when I first got into the social media makeup world and they were Kandee Johnson and Carli Bybel.
At the time, I was just playing around with glam makeup looks.
After some time, I came across some creative/ avant-garde makeup artists that would go outside of the conventional makeup looks and I found it so fascinating.
I would say two artists that first inspired me to do creative makeup was Jordi (@itslikelymakeup) and Kimberley (@kimberleymargarita_). I watched them both in the Nyx Face Awards a couple years ago and I love their work!
4. Do you do any other forms of art that influenced your make up looks?
I was in AP Art in high school and always enjoyed drawing and painting, even if I don’t do it anymore.
I am not sure if that influenced my makeup looks, but I do think there is a connection because my favorite thing to draw has always been eyes and faces, because I loved shading and contouring. All of my notebooks in high school had a lot of faces and eyes on the backs of the pages.
Entertainment with a Social Justice Twist!
